CyberLink’s facial recognition technology today announced its partnership with Asus ARM based single computers to create facial recognition in IoT and AIoT applications in retail, public services and other fields. It is the collaboration between the ASUS IoT and CyberLink’s FaceMe to provide solution for ready-to-use, fully integrated facial-recognition capabilities for security, access control and visitor management, the company said.
“Facial recognition is one of the most popular technologies powering an exponentially growing set of IoT solutions in a booming market,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink in a statement.
CyberLink’s FaceMe SDK is a cross-platform AI facial recognition engine that offers comprehensive operating systems support and optimised for IoT hardware and AI inference engines for developers.
ASUS IoT Tinker Board 2 is said to provide rich wired and wireless connectivity, and dual 4K screen output support, for deployment as a ready-to-use solution for digital signage, kiosks, point-of-sale (POS) and access-control systems.
“Edge AI is now a key piece of future technology in AIoT applications in various markets,” said Kuowei Chao, general manager of the ASUS IoT business unit.
The company said the Arm-based SoCs and android FaceMe are optimised to deliver real-time face detection and extraction. According to the statement, the Face Recognition Edge AI Dev Kit, which includes both FaceMe and Tinker Board 2, can be deployed as a digital-signage solution to perform real-time face detection and precisely determine attributes such as age, gender and emotion, dynamically providing valuable data on visitor traffic that can be used for statistics or even real-time ad personalisation.
