Low-cost MCU-based face recognition solution for touchless access control

12-11-2020 | NXP | Semiconductors

NXP Semiconductors has revealed its latest NXP EdgeReady IoT solution for secure face recognition that allows OEMs to easily, quickly and inexpensively add vision-based touchless access control. The company's turnkey solution includes the i.MX RT106F crossover MCU and license to AI/ML-based face recognition software, which makes face recognition with liveness checking using infrared and RGB cameras, flash and SDRAM memories possible at a low cost.


This solution can be employed to implement face recognition for authenticating and operating secure machines, equipment, and access points for public buildings, hotels, and homes, including doors, locks, elevators, amenities, garage doors, security systems and more.


Unlike other development kits that need integration and coding, the solution for secure face recognition based on the i.MX RT106F development kit contains all the software and hardware information to complete designs in as little as six months. The kit includes schematics, BoM, board layout for a turnkey design experience, and the ready-to-use face biometric registration application.
