Aurora's facial recognition technology is a non-intrusive way of identifying and verifying people and can be used in any situation where access security is of the utmost importance.
Our scanning devices are non-contact which means they are not susceptible to damage caused by grease or dust, ensuring that verification remains hygienic and accurate.
Over the past decade, Aurora's solutions have been used to log many millions of time and attendance records every year, both in the UK and in the Middle East. The industries that have adopted them include the UK government, police forces, schools and construction.
Now, having proven to be a consistent and reliable method of access control and monitoring personnel, the technology has been ordered by London Heathrow, to be used as part of the process of passenger verification.
Due to the use of a near infrared flash linked to our camera, our technology can work in any lighting condition. The cameras are able to capture images of the person verifying up to a distance of approximately a meter, meaning that it is not intrusive.
In some of the products, the person being identified can enter a pin or scan a personal card at the same time as having their photo taken, which means that the information stored as records for that individual, as well as their stored images are checked live, against their face.
In the airport environment, passengers that are enrolled in the system have their biometrics linked with the boarding pass on entry into the common user lounges. Passengers are then verified against their previous enrolment before boarding their flight.
