Facial recognition systems to be used for preventing tourists’ anti-social behaviour

Comments Off on Facial recognition systems to be used for preventing tourists’ anti-social behaviour

Tourist displaying anti-social behaviour in Beijing may soon find themselves unable to access some of the city’s attractions thanks to facial recognition technology, a recent news report has been able to suggest.

Local authorities are planning to install cameras with facial recognition features across the city’s hot spots, a move aimed at curbing tourists with bad behaviour.

As part of their plan, Beijing will utilize facial recognition to blacklist such tourists, who will then be punished with access restrictions to museums, parks and other spots.

The move comes as the city sees an influx of visitors due to the Qingming Festival, also known as Tomb-Sweeping Day, which many celebrated from April 5 to April 7.

According to the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, 112 million domestic trips were made during the occasion, an increase of 10.9% from last year’s.

CCTV Surveillance – The experts in deploying Facial Recognition CCTV systems

The Facial Recognition CCTV solution supplied by CCTV Surveillance dynamically compares images of individuals from incoming video streams against those stored in a predefined access control list and immediately sends alerts when a positive match occurs.

The technology yields a very good level of performance despite partial occlusions of the face, the use of glasses, scarves or caps, changes of facial expression, and moderate rotations of the face. Moreover, it does not allow users to be impersonated using photographs.

This biometric access control technology is the perfect solution to control the access to restricted security areas, especially since we’re talking about a completely automated system that requires very little interaction with the operator.

Our Facial Recognition CCTV system can be easily integrated with existing ID management products and enables administrators to easily create Whitelists/Blacklists for specific areas, while subjects can be very easily enrolled from one or more photographs.

The system fully supports runtime alarm management, is highly tunable (control based on time-frames, sequentially, etc) and even allows alarms to be exported to common formats (PDF, Excel) and remote devices (mobile, PDA, tablet, security control centre).
