SVI, IDEMIA NSS Collaborate to Offer Most Advanced FMCW 4D LiDAR Biometric Recognition Solution

Reading time ( words)

StereoVision Imaging, Inc. (SVI), the emerging world leader in 2D and 3D/4D LiDAR based facial/object recognition and remote sensing technology, has joined forces with IDEMIA National Security Solutions (NSS) to offer the most capable biometric recognition platform available today.

The solution combines NSS’s world-class biometric software with SVI’s superior 4D FMCW LiDAR system technology. FMCW LiDAR, which is short for “frequency-modulated continuous wave light detection and ranging,” represents the state-of-the-art for biometric recognition. 

Together, SVI and IDEMIA NSS will deliver enterprise and tactical-level identity solutions that reliably address today’s most challenging security threats in real-time.

The main advantages of SVI’s FMCW 4D LiDAR over other types of LiDAR is its ability to instantly determine at exceptionally long ranges all four key dimensions of an object, which are length, width, depth and velocity. Unique to SVI’s dual-chirp FMCW laser technology is its ability to acquire velocity or motion information instantaneously at 40x the distance compared to traditional technology while remaining eye-safe.

SVI’s technology works exceptionally well in real world situations regardless of a subject’s movement, pose, expression and surrounding lighting conditions. It can overcome occlusions, such as beards, sunglasses, or a vehicle windshield. Further, it can remotely detect heart and breathing rate, eye movement and speech, which can provide indications of alertness, psychological condition or intent. 

The development of these advanced capabilities was the result of more than $100 million invested in R&D over the last 10 years. The Mil-Spec, field-proven technology is protected by more than 100 patents and patents pending worldwide.

NSS specializes in physical security and augmented identity solutions, including facial recognition systems and other biometric identification services. Its customers include U.S. government agencies, state and local agencies, law enforcement, border control and transportation agencies.

“We believe the integration of our identity software with SVI’s state-of-the-art LiDAR creates an unmatched solution for addressing the most challenging of security entry applications,” shared by Shane Powers, vice president of operations for IDEMIA National Security Solutions. “SVI’s military funded and field proven technology provides the level of power and sophistication our customers need and demand.” 

Gregory Steinthal, president of SVI, commented: “Powering our technology with best-in-class biometric software is integral to providing a biometric security system that ensures national security and public safety. NSS provides us entry into new markets beyond the military and tremendous opportunities for growth over the coming year.”

My View from CES 2021: Day 1

01/12/2021 | Dan Feinberg, Technology Editor, I-Connect007
What a difference a year makes. One year ago, those of us who cover and attend CES were going from one press conference to the next; this year, we are at home going from link to link. Confusing and challenging, yes, but there are some advantages: no masks, only five steps to get to a restroom, being able to have three of four events or more displaying on your screens at the same time and being able to download press kits as needed. So far, many new devices are being introduced, but of course, they are all online, so you wonder if some of them really exist or are truly operational as yet.

CES 2021: Just How Different Will It Be?

01/11/2021 | Dan Feinberg, I-Connect007
CES 2021 starts today and this year there is no need for an overpriced hotel room in Vegas, no long lines to get a taxi or board a bus, and no crowded exhibit halls (one good thing this year). On the other hand, you must decide ahead of time what you want to see and make a reservation or appointment if you wish to have time and access assured.

CES 2020: The Intelligence of Things

01/06/2020 | Nolan Johnson, I-Connect007
Show week for CES 2020 starts well ahead of the actual exhibition dates because it is huge. The organizers of CES state that there are more than 4,400 exhibiting companies and nearly three million net square feet of exhibit space. On the floor, you can find 307 of the 2018 Fortune Global 500 companies. Over the week, I-Connect007 Editors Dan Feinberg and Nolan Johnson will bring you some of the most interesting news, products, and announcements from 5G to IoT, semiconductor developments, autonomous vehicle technology, interconnect, fabrication materials, and much more.
