BACKGROUND

Uniwebb Software has spearheaded the creation of an innovative face recognition technology aimed at bolstering security and refining the process of identifying individuals. Our development was for a prominent US Based company renowned for its expertise in software development and IT consultancy within the retail sector. This client boasts a stellar history of devising, crafting, and deploying a myriad of digital solutions tailored for retail, covering an array of product lines from general goods to clothing and food items.

Globally recognized, the client provides a broad spectrum of scalable digital products, catering to a wide client demographic, including big-name international retailers and small shop owners.

CHALLENGE

The main challenge was to augment the accuracy of facial recognition within the retail sphere. Our mission was to engineer a state-of-the-art facial recognition framework that was both scalable and decentralized, utilizing a variety of algorithms to ensure precise face detection.

We faced obstacles due to the inconsistency in video quality and characteristics, mainly caused by diverse lighting conditions and the variable quality of the video frames. These issues affected the system’s ability to correctly identify and analyze facial points and surrounding features, which was crucial for the solution’s reliability and efficiency.

The images presented were affected by uneven lighting, blurriness, or a combination of both, complicating the achievement of satisfactory recognition results based on such frames.

OUR SOLUTION

To address these challenges, Uniwebb embarked on crafting a bespoke facial recognition software designed specifically for the retail industry, incorporating a suite of face recognition algorithms. These algorithms, including unmanaged and managed PCA (Principal Component Analysis) and managed eigenfaces, provided the flexibility to adapt to varying needs.

  • Unmanaged Face Recognition PCA: Utilizes PCA to identify and highlight essential facial features effectively under various conditions.
  • Managed Face Recognition PCA: Builds on the basic PCA, introducing precision management to enhance feature extraction for reliable recognition across different image qualities.
  • Managed Face Recognition Eigenfaces: Uses the eigenfaces approach for a refined selection of eigenvectors, improving efficiency in processing large image datasets.

To boost image accuracy and system performance, we integrated two OpenCV algorithms for face and eye detection, achieving consistent and dependable face recognition. Adjustments were made to enhance eye detection accuracy, significantly improving system stability and facilitating accurate image adjustments and filtering.

Efficient Batch Image Processing:

A batch image processing module was developed to streamline the processing of images from series, videos, or cameras, significantly reducing time and effort and ensuring smooth operations for large data volumes.

Integration with CCTV Systems: By integrating the facial recognition technology with existing CCTV infrastructure, we elevated surveillance capabilities, enabling precise, real-time identification in stores or warehouses. This combination not only enhances security against unauthorized entry but also improves employee management by monitoring attendance and behavior, promoting a safer and more efficient retail environment.

This solution enables access to live video feeds, allowing for the real-time analysis of faces within the video stream. Employing sophisticated algorithms, it can detect and analyze facial features from footage, enhancing situational awareness and offering a comprehensive view of employee activities through features like facial tracking.

PROCESS

The journey to develop our cutting-edge facial recognition technology began with an in-depth analysis of our client’s specific needs. We embraced the Scrum methodology to ensure an agile and efficient development process. This method facilitated daily stand-up meetings for immediate progress reports and monthly demos to showcase our progress and gather feedback from the client.

Our project management and documentation were streamlined through the use of Jira and Confluence, which allowed for effective task management and information sharing. Microsoft Teams was our primary communication channel with the client, ensuring clear and continuous dialogue.

At the core of our technical approach was the adoption of advanced algorithms for accurate face and eye recognition. A pivotal breakthrough was enhancing the system’s ability to pinpoint the centers of pupils, alongside improvements in image stabilization and normalization, addressing the challenge of variable video input quality directly.

This Agile framework enabled us to tailor a facial recognition system that not only fulfilled our client’s unique requirements but also underscored our dedication to innovation and customer satisfaction.

RESULTS

Our efforts culminated in a system capable of distinguishing individuals with high accuracy, even from lower-quality sources. This precision has significantly bolstered security by facilitating robust authentication protocols. Authorized personnel can now access secure areas and systems confidently, mitigating risks of unauthorized breaches. The system also supports real-time surveillance, quickly alerting security staff about any unauthorized or suspicious entry attempts.

The deployment of this facial recognition solution has proven to be highly effective, offering a reliable, efficient, and secure means of identification and authentication. Its impact extends beyond security, enhancing access control, attendance tracking, and even enriching customer experiences across various industries.
