The ones on the RealSense website (.) featured products are not all new. The RealSense cameras have been around for a long time. What is new, however, is the “Intel RealSense ID” technology for face recognition, which was presented yesterday in a press release. This should only have an error rate of 1: 1.000.000 and also not fall for photos, videos or masks.

Nevertheless, it should be able to automatically adjust to changes, such as glasses, beards and other adjustments to the face. According to Intel, it should also be unique that RealSense ID works reliably for all ethnicities through extensive analysis of facial data from all over the world.

Where the technology should be used

Unlike Apple, where Face ID is only used in mobile smart devices to unlock the same, Intel wants to use its technology more broadly. RealSense ID could be used in smart door locks, as access control in buildings, at points of sale, at ATMs, at kiosks and the like. 

In addition to face recognition, Intel also offers solutions in the areas of robotics, 3D scanning, tracking, drones and surveying with RealSense.
