MARTIGNY, Switzerland, June 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
KeyLemon and SoftKinetic today announce a joint demonstration of 3D front-facing camera in Mobile and 3D face recognition technology at Mobile World Congress Shanghai (MWC) on (June 28 - July 1, 2017).
SoftKinetic's front-facing 3D time-of-flight (ToF) camera enables KeyLemon's 3D face recognition technology to authenticate users as easily as taking a selfie. This will be the first ever demonstration at MWC of face recognition that efficiently combines depth, near-infrared and color information, breaking new grounds for mobile authentication.
"3D face recognition has been anticipated on mobile for many years, and the recent reports of 3D mobile cameras moving into mainstream production have only heightened the anticipation" says Gilles Florey, CEO of KeyLemon. "With SoftKinetic's DepthSense® technology, KeyLemon 3D face recognition capability can now be demonstrated under real-life conditions".
This capability has transformative potential for the future of mobile authentication. 3D cameras offer valuable information to map the user's face. 3D face recognition thus promises accurate, secured and user-friendly authentication as 3D cameras penetrate the mobile market. Hence KeyLemon and SoftKinetic collaboration is bound to accelerate the mass adoption of face recognition for mobile authentication.
