Problem

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.

Solution

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:
The technical conditions of the complex operation consist of two access levels:
  • Level 1 «gate number 1» – reading personal data from documents (ID card and biometric passport)
  • Level 2 «gate number 2» – face photo, height and fingerprint
If both levels match, a passage is provided.
In case of mismatch of both levels - passage through «gate number 1».

Results

The use of the HIT VMS software with the 3DiVi Face SDK algorithm allowed the development of a scalable system. This will allow the implementation of smart borders in areas where large numbers of people pass, ensuring compliance with EU regulations of biometric data collection when entering and leaving the Schengen area, improving operational efficiency.
Through the high speed of 3DiVi's facial recognition algorithm, we strive to provide reliable and integrated technology solutions to our customers' needs, thus ensuring the processing of heavy traffic without any delay.
