Launch of Intel RealSense ID facial recognition system
Intel RealSense ID has been introduced as a facial recognition system that will allow users to unlock things at a glance. Intel RealSense ID combines an active depth sensor with a specialized neural network that the company claims is designed to provide secure, accurate, and user-aware facial authentication. The Face ID-like system works with smart locks, ATMs, door access control, and more. Intel RealSense ID will be available at the end of the first quarter of 2021 and can be shipped to most countries, including India.
Intel RealSense ID Pricing and Availability
The Intel RealSense ID F455 peripheral is priced at $ 99 (roughly Rs. 7,300). The Intel RealSense ID F450 module, on the other hand, is available in a pack of 10 and is priced at $ 750 (roughly Rs. 55,100). Intel RealSense ID can be pre-ordered right now but will ship in the first week of March. The credit card-sized product can be shipped to most countries, including India, according to the official website.
Intel RealSense ID Features
Intel RealSense ID uses two camera lenses and sensors that can capture depth. According to Intel’s traditional authentication methods tend to leave users vulnerable to identity theft and security breaches, which is why businesses and individuals are turning to facial authentication technology.
Intel RealSense ID has built-in anti-spoofing technology to protect against false entry attempts using photos, videos, or masks, according to the company. It claims to provide a fake acceptance rate of one in a million.
Face ID-like technology adapts to users over time as physical characteristics, such as facial hair and glasses, change, according to Intel. The company says that RealSense ID combines depth with a specialized neural network, a dedicated system on a chip (SoC), and a built-in secure element to encrypt and process user data quickly and securely.
According to Intel, RealSense ID has a simple enrollment process and does not require any network configuration. Intel emphasizes privacy and says the solution is only activated through user knowledge and will not authenticate unless requested by a previously registered user. The company claims that the solution is based on privacy and that ID processes all facial images locally and encrypts all data.
