Smart Terminal: Facial Authentication/Artificial Intelligence

From airports to concerts, the need for enhanced security and facial authentication gives rise to new IoT applications for end users using smart terminals. By using both wireless connectivity and AI for facial authentication, smart terminals can provide a means to surveillance and security for homes, daycare facilities, hospitals, airports and more. Smart terminal IoT solutions can also accelerate vision-based edge computing, thereby improving real-time security and authentication1.

Project Celadon is an Android* open source platform for Intel ® architecture, which allows ODMs, OEM manufacturers, and ecosystem partners to:

  • Accelerate Development. Developers can benefit from Project Celadon open platform enablement and lower time to market by developing smart terminal solutions on the latest Android releases. Celadon supports the latest Android dessert from Google, providing critical bug fixes and security updates in the kernel.
  • Improve Efficiency. Project Celadon is an Android open source platform for Intel® architecture, which also allows developers to leverage Intel® hardware acceleration and provides the flexibility to customize to the latest Android applications.
  • Scale reliably. Project Celadon can be used to build a software reference stack for vision based edge computing deployments, such as those used for smart cities, or smart campuses.

Using an Intel Core and Atom processors, Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ 2 Vision Processing Unit (VPU), Android software stack and Facial recognition algorithms, end users can build FR based authentication solutions to improve security.
