Facial recognition provider Nirovision has re-enforced the need for touchless technology, saying that workplaces are becoming increasingly reliant on touchless interfaces.
Research conducted by the company found that 82 per cent of people believe that touchless interfaces at work would give them better protection, as well as create a more hygienic workplace.
Touchless interfaces are already present within workplaces, with touchless traffic lights and touchless boom gates. Nirovision’s further development of touchless interfaces is benefiting Australian industries.
Facial recognition technology was valued at USD 4.84 billion in 2020, with the sector expected to grow to USD 12.75 billion by 2026. According to Mordor Intelligence, it registered a compound annual growth rate of 17.6 per cent over the forecast period from 2021 to 2026.
Facial recognition in the workplace utilises computer algorithms to identify a series of numerical vectors that represent key features detected in a face. Data is then compared to other images in the database to find a match.
The facial technology boosts security and safety, enabling users to enter spaces without the use of swipe cards or pin codes, both of which can be easily lost or taken.
Nirovision conducted an Australian industrial workplace survey, which found that 77 per cent of respondents in related industries would likely invest in the new equipment to further improve the safety of their workplace. Interest is rising in what will likely become a widely used technology.
