Attendees at the Mobile World Congress 2008, held in Barcelona from Feb. 11-14, will have the opportunity to try out OKI‘s face and iris-recognition technology designed for mobile handsets – “for the first time in the West” according to Harushige Sugimoto, chief technology officer of Oki Electric Industry. The OKI Face Sensing Engine is perhaps the most sophisticated mobile face recognition software on the market, providing several facial image processing functions like face detection, feature point extraction, tracking, and images and video-based personal identification. Their system has already been put to use in digital cameras, cameraphones, and mobile games, requiring surprising little memory. Along with face recognition, OKI will also be unveiling their iris recognition middleware they’ve optimized for mobile use. While biometrics recognition tools have yet to be fully embraced in the non-mobile world, the need for compact, precise security solutions for our increasingly all-in-one (and pricier) mobile devices is there.
