A facial recognition system is a computer application for automatically identifying or verifying a person from a digital image or a video frame from a video source. One of the ways to do this is by comparing selected facial features from the image and a facial database.
It is typically used in security systems and can be compared to other biometrics such as fingerprint or eye iris recognition systems.
There are numerous biometric security systems in the world. These biometric systems are well adopted and have proven their utility in multiple scenarios and conditions. Although, no technology is cent percent right but delivering a trust worthy and reliable solution for various use cases has always been a great challenge accepted by the technologist , researchers and entrepreneurs across the world. Facial recognition system is one of the unique way of biometric identity verification since ages. This system includes many variations like access control system, visitor management system, time attendance system and many more. These applications enhance the security level to many premises such as schools, offices, government buildings, educational institutes, and other organizations. It is not only beneficial for security purposes, but also for controlling human resources by ensuring their presence at right time and location.
The Visual Identification & Tracking Systems (MVITS) is a novel and creative way to track and monitor your on-field and in-office employees/staff. MVITS is a unified solution which ensures both the on field force employees presence at right time and location and simultaneously ensuring the check in check out time of the in-the-office employees.
Currently the visual identification system is based on the patent pending technology of facial recognition which widely used to record several factors like on-field & in-office presence and absence,location details of the meetings, overtime and under time, authorized and unauthorized leaves, etc. of each employees and staff of the company. This system includes several steps which enables its tracking work. The first step involves the employees to enroll themselves by using their mobile/desktop/laptop devices which has built in web cam . Based on the concept of BYOD– Bring Your Own Device, it captures the facial features of individual employee and uploads to the cloud to build the database. This process of building the database is OTP- One Time Process called “enrolment”. Next time when the employee/staff use the application, it automatically detects and recognises the employee to ensure his/her presence at the right time and location.
Still many small and medium companies are using the pen-paper and log book based attendance system. This is highly time-consuming and effort driven process. This traditional way of ensuring the productivity has always been prone to problems like data manipulations, proxies, data loss, data mismanagement , lack of analytical information and many more.
