Access control and security monitoring systems provide a higher level of protection, comfort and safety in buildings and outdoor areas. The touchless-authentication trend has accelerated due to COVID-19. Demand has increased for 3D authentication sensing solutions for use in residential building access and public building access, as well as commercial applications.
Based on all three forms of 2D and 3D sensing technologies, ams OSRAM delivers all key components for face authentication from the VCSEL-based near infrared (NIR) flood and dot pattern illuminators over discrete NIR LEDs at a wide spread power range to the highly sensitive receiving image sensors. Reference designs including software are available; making the adoption of 3D face authentication based on ams OSRAM’s key components and software a simple and fast process.
Most of the market is still using 2D face authentication, while 3D anti-spoofing is a key feature to achieve highest biometric security levels. Where authentication systems draw too much power to remain ‘on,’ 1D time-of-flight can operate at lower power and trigger the authentication system to turn on when someone approaches to request access.
ams OSRAM has a myriad of advanced technologies and solutions that are shaping this industry, and seamlessly integrate into your products.
