The partnership will integrate FaceMe® technology in the new Sentry Health Kiosks™ to help businesses ensure individuals’ health and safety
TAIPEI, TAIWAN – July 16, 2020 – CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), a pioneer in AI and facial recognition technologies, today announced a partnership integrating its facial recognition software development kit (SDK) FaceMe®, into Sentry Health Kiosks™ by Municipal Parking Services, Inc. (MPS). The integration enables the touchless kiosks to verify the identity of individuals through facial recognition, detect whether or not a person is wearing a mask properly, identify someone with high temperature and recognize gesture-based responses, such as head nodding and shaking, to answer health questions.
MPS launched the Sentry Health Kiosk™ to provide best-in-class safety and health assurance for individuals. The kiosks are designed to help mitigate the asymptomatic spread of COVID-19 in both public and private premises by automatically reporting body temperature, mandating hand sanitizer, managing access control and creating a comprehensive audit trail. Now equipped with FaceMe® facial recognition technology, the kiosk can not only identify someone even when wearing a mask, but also identify if they’re wearing a mask at all and if they are wearing it properly.
“As businesses and workplaces reopen, and warnings of the virus continue to loom, we have seen a bolstered demand in solutions that empower companies to open their doors with confidence, while also meeting proper health and safety requirements,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “Municipal Parking Services is a leading provider of access control technology and we are proud to join forces and supply FaceMe® technology for the revolutionary Sentry Health Kiosk™ so that enterprise, government and academic organizations can all do their part to stymie the spread.”
“CyberLink is the perfect partner for us to work with because they, like us, are committed to building a safer workplace,” said Joe Caldwell, the Co-Founder of Municipal Parking Services. “With CyberLink’s advanced FaceMe® facial recognition engine, the Sentry Health Kiosk™ checks all the boxes needed to not only ensure safe access to protect employees, visitors, business partners and the entire community against health threats, but also verify an individual’s credentials. Our kiosk offers everyone peace of mind.”
FaceMe® provides an edge-based, cross platform SDK, including Windows, Linux, Android and iOS, which is suitable for IoT & AIoT hardware to deploy facial recognition, as well as software applications requiring facial recognition. Its engine is one of the most accurate in the world according to the authoritative NIST’s Facial Recognition Vendor Test. FaceMe’s® high accuracy, flexibility and security makes it the leading facial recognition engine available on the market today.
