Facial recognition CCTV technology used for detecting emotions as part of research project

Tensor – experts in CCTV  maintenance, systems takeover, design and deployment

Facial recognition CCTV technology is being used within an university research project for tracking students’ emotions, a news report can reveal.

The system installed at the University of Iowa scans the faces of all who pass under it and instantly calculates their moods — collecting readings for joy, frustration, confusion, fear, anger and sadness.

The data obtained by the facial encoding algorithm is part of a larger student research project underway in the Tippie College of Business that uses automated technology to read emotions by measuring slight movements in the facial muscles, such as a movement of the eyebrow or a widening of a lip.

Unlike most facial recognition cameras, this one does not record any static or dynamic images. In fact, it only records biometric data and, if successful, it could have some huge opportunities in the worlds of marketing, advertising and political campaigns.

Tensor – the go-to company for deploying facial recognition CCTV technology

Tensor has an extensive experience in deploying solutions that employ facial recognition technology for a variety of customers. Our expertise and technical know-how enables us to easily integrate video surveillance into other security systems including ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition), Access Control and Facial Recognition to name a few, in order to enhance and improve the security and efficiency at your site.

Tensor face biometrics are used to identify users from access control lists and verify their identity. Our access control solution facilitates user management at runtime and allows users to be enrolled on-the-fly by video capture.

This technology yields excellent 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. Tensor biometric technology is the perfect solution to control the access of personnel to restricted security areas.
