Security is important to all kinds of businesses today and embedded vision systems can help to improve the efficiency of security systems. You likely have some type of security where you work, whether it’s a badge, a key fob, or a biometric reader. If your facility uses one of these technologies, you’ve likely experienced frustration at one time or another.
Increased security measures help to keep a company’s employees, property, and information safe. But it can lead to increased stress. What happens when you forget your badge? What if your key fob doesn’t work? What if the biometric reader malfunctions? Even trained security personnel can make mistakes. Fortunately, embedded vision systems can assist.
Embedded Vision Systems Now Used for Building Security
Artificial intelligence and 3D embedded vision systems can help automate access control more accurately. The systems can be programmed to grant employees only the access they need based on the security clearance they’ve been granted, the NDAs that they have signed, or the projects they are working on.
The use of embedded vision systems is like having a guard at every door with the ability to scan a badge and authenticate its wearer. But, unlike with a guard, there’s no need to stop. Employees can be scanned in real-time and verified as they approach a secured area. Imagine ditching your badge or key-fob. Think of what it would be like to be free of security lines and needless delays.
Integration of Embedded Vision Security Applications
Some challenges with embedded vision systems involve their integration with other security systems. Standard security and surveillance technologies are not always compatible with newer embedded vision technology. Many common color cameras can be easily spoofed. Facial scanning technology must also be fast enough for practical use.
An embedded vision system must be able to identify an approaching object as a person, verify their identity, and grant the person access before they get to the door. It must also unlock it or even open the door automatically, much like the automatic door at your local grocery store. But with one key difference: it only opens for you and other qualified shoppers.
To make a foolproof, easy-to-use system, infrared cameras are being added. Along with 3D imaging and AI-based technology, enough facial data can be captured to properly authenticate a person seeking access. To make the embedded vision systems easier to set up, a person can begin by showing their badge. In time, systems might no longer require a badge to permit entry.
