Omron Electronic Components Europe is demonstrating its second-generation body detection, face detection and face recognition solution at Integrated Systems Europe 2020 (Booth 8-G353).
With an integrated camera and image processing board, the Omron Human Vision Component HVC-P2 offers 10 times the recognition speed of its predecessor. The HVC-P2 is a development of the Omron OKAO Vision Software, which has already been used in over 500 million digital cameras, mobile phones and surveillance robots globally. It features ten image sensing functions including body detection, face recognition, hand detection, age estimation, gender estimation and expression estimation. Although the software can recognize a face up to 3 meters away, it still gives a useful confidence figure alongside its results, which can be viewed through a UART or USB interface. This distance is not limited to facial recognition and the module can also detect a human body up to 17 meters away or a hand 6 meters away.
The sensor has already been used to great success by a digital marketing company to provide in-store tailored content to customers, which subsequently enabled retailers to track their improved performance metrics. The company also combined the built-in camera and processor with its own additional algorithms, allowing them the flexibility required to collect valuable customer analytics data using their own software.
