Security Border Gate

Automated border control system by High Information Technologies SIA


High Information Technologies SIA is a supplier of security systems in the Baltic States and the
European region. The company provides optimal solutions for business in the field of video surveillance, monitoring and security. High Information Technologies develops future-oriented products that are multifunctional and flexible enough to integrate and adapt to new customer needs. The company also provides consultations and services for the development and integration of video surveillance,
video analytics, access control systems, fire and security alarms.



For the organization of automated border control using digital identity cards, it is necessary to implement a project of a checkpoint with built-in recognition of biometric data that is read from ID cards and biometric passports. The project is aimed at modernizing and expanding the existing border control infrastructure. It provides increased operational efficiency and contactless passport control while ensuring compliance with EU regulatory frameworks.


High Information Technologies SIA has developed the Security Border Gate complex using 3DiVi Face SDK, capable of replacing traditional border control with fully digital processing of passengers. This complex is built based on the HIT VMS software and is designed to use unimpeded movement by reading data from ID cards and biometric passports of passengers, as a result, a quick passage in the border control zone is achieved.

The Company served as an IT integrator in this project. The decision to utilize 3DiVi Face SDK was made because SDK includes and an advanced 3D liveness module.

The customer wanted 3D face recognition as it was known that 3D liveness works much faster and more reliably than 2D livensess solutions (despite the higher cost of 3D sensors, which adds about $100 for each terminal).

During the integration process, 3DiVi made recommendations on the selection of 3D sensors. After testing Intel RealSense and Orbbec Astra, Papillon selected RealSense for the Face Terminal: Intel NUC Mini PC was used as a processing unit. See close-up videos of assembled 3D Face Recognition Terminal:
To accelerate software development, pre-built components of 3DiVi Face Machine were used: Face Machine Server and Face Machine Client application. Face Machine Server (on-prem instance) stored face templates of employees, and Face Machine Client enabled face recognition on a terminal.

Our task was to develop a user interface for these components and to integrate it with the legacy HR management system of the customer.

During testing it showed excellent reliability (with zero false access errors on 1200 faces) and fast recognition speed (less than 300 ms per person). The project went live in 1Q2019 and development took about six months.
We would like to highlight an excellent error rate (zero so far on 1,200 database) and very fast recognition performance of the 3DiVi face recognition algorithm.
