Similar to a fingerprint search (AFIS) system, face recognition technology can assist law enforcement agencies to identify suspects or find missing persons. Faces in photographs or video still images, as well as facial sketches/composites, can be compared to image databases of known criminals and provide investigators with the most similar faces (candidate list). Face recognition is a highly efficient and accurate tool supporting investigation processes.
Mobile identity check
Police, intelligence, and military forces can identify suspects in the field using mobile devices. Cognitec's face recognition technology is used on handheld devices to capture a suspect photo and compare it to central image databases through mobile networks.
