CyberLink has announced a partnership with ASUS, integrating its FaceMe AI facial recognition engine into ASUS Tinker Board 2 single board computer (SBC).
The result of a close collaboration between ASUS IoT and CyberLink’s FaceMe team, this joint solution provides out-of-the-box and fully integrated facial recognition capabilities for security, access control, visitor management and contactless experiences for retail, utilities, hospitality and Suite.
CyberLink’s FaceMe SDK is a cross-platform and ranked among the most accurate AI facial recognition engine in the world. Offering full operating system support and optimized for IoT hardware and AI inference engines, FaceMe provides developers and integrators of IoT / AIoT systems with highly accurate and flexible facial recognition capabilities, enabling a wide range of solutions applicable in all sectors.
ASUS IoT Tinker Board 2 is an Arm-based single board computer that supports Android 10 operating system. Powered by Rockchip RK3399 six-core system on chip (SoC) with new 64-bit Armv8 architecture, plus Mali-T860 multicore. Tinker Board 2 offers exceptional performance, rich wired and wireless connectivity, and support for dual 4K display output, making it ideal for deployment as an out-of-the-box solution for display digital, kiosks, point of sale (POS) and access. control systems for retail, utilities, hospitality and healthcare.
âFacial recognition is one of the most popular technologies fueling an exponentially growing set of IoT solutions in a booming market,â said Dr Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. âWe are honored to partner with ASUS, a global leader in IoT hardware, and to provide developers of FaceMe solutions with one of the most accurate and flexible facial recognition SDKs in the world. “
âEdge AI is now a key part of future technology in AIoT applications in various markets,â said Kuowei Chao, general manager of ASUS IoT business unit. âASUS IoT is delighted to collaborate with CyberLink, a global leader in AI facial recognition technology, integrating solutions with Tinker Board 2, our powerful SBC which, compared to competing SBC products, offers significantly improved performance, which makes it ideal for the retail, health and safety industries.
Optimized for Arm and Android-based SoCs, FaceMe can provide real-time face detection and extraction. The Face Recognition Edge AI Development Kit, which includes both FaceMe and Tinker Board 2, can be deployed as a digital signage solution to perform real-time face detection and accurately determine attributes such as age, gender and emotion, dynamically providing valuable data on visitor traffic that can be used for statistics or even ad personalization in real time. Alternatively, for example, the Face Recognition Edge AI Development Kit can enable hotel check-in kiosks to instantly identify registered loyalty members and deliver fast, fully personalized, contactless experiences.
CyberLink’s FaceMe Engine is ranked among the world’s most accurate facial recognition technologies by the renowned National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Facial Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT), ranked top 6 in 1: 1 and 1: N tests . With full support for operating systems including Windows, Linux (Ubuntu, Red Hat, CentOS), JetPack (Jetson), iOS and Android, and optimization for CPU, GPU, SoC, APU and VPU, FaceMe provides a flexible solution to enable facial recognition on a wide range of IoT / AIoT devices.
