Facial Recognition at Ticket Gates Improve Security
Facial recognition technology has made tremendous progress in recent years and is becoming a pervasive part of human life—mostly without us even noticing. In China, many ticket gates at transportation stations are being fitted with the newest facial recognition technology to heighten security and improve social control.
The system had to be able to quickly capture real-time images and perform recognition, verification, or identification within a very short period of time to ensure the smooth flow of people through the station. It required a high performance computing platform (Intel Core i7 grade or above) to quickly run complex algorithms and facial recognition software, and a good network connection was required to link all the gates to a centralized management platform and an image database. Also, because the computer was to be embedded into each ticket gate and had to connect to a number of devices, a computer with a small physical footprint and multiple I/O was essential.
Though high computing performance requirements usually run contrary to small device footprints, Advantech’s ARK-3520L fanless box computer met both requirements with a unique mechanical and ventilation design, delivering Intel 6th generation computing capability and up to 32GB memory support in a 220 x 101 x 233 mm small form factor.
