Face recognition system for smart devices developed in Finland
As part of his doctoral thesis, researcher Olli Lahdenoja has developed a face recognition system that could be used, for example, in smart watches and phones. The system fits onto a single electronic chip.
The system can, for example, cause a clock to start when the user looks at it. The recognition system could also be used when a person logs in to an online service.
Lahdenoja’s system is based on the Local Binary Pattern (LBP) method developed in Finland. The chip solution is a focal-plane processor that can be given additional properties. The LBP method has not been applied to focal-place processors previously.
Lahdenoja will defend his electronics dissertation on 6 June at the University of Turku.
