CyberLink Corp., an artificial intelligence and facial recognition technology company, is integrating its facial recognition software development kit FaceMe into Sentry Health Kiosks by Municipal Parking Services. The integration enables the touchless kiosks to verify the identity of individuals through facial recognition, detect whether or not a person is wearing a mask properly, identify someone with high temperature and recognize gesture-based responses, such as head nodding and shaking, to answer health questions.

MPS launched the Sentry Health Kiosk to provide safety and health assurance for individuals. The kiosks are designed to help mitigate the asymptomatic spread of COVID-19 in both public and private premises by automatically reporting body temperature, mandating hand sanitizer, managing access control and creating a comprehensive audit trail. With FaceMe facial recognition technology, the kiosk can not only identify someone even when wearing a mask, but also identify if they’re wearing a mask at all and if they are wearing it properly.

“As businesses and workplaces reopen, and warnings of the virus continue to loom, we have seen a bolstered demand in solutions that empower companies to open their doors with confidence, while also meeting proper health and safety requirements,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “Municipal Parking Services is a leading provider of access control technology and we are proud to join forces and supply FaceMe® technology for the revolutionary Sentry Health Kiosk™ so that enterprise, government and academic organizations can all do their part to stymie the spread.”

“CyberLink is the perfect partner for us to work with because they, like us, are committed to building a safer workplace,” said Joe Caldwell, Municipal Parking Services co-founder. “With CyberLink’s advanced FaceMe facial recognition engine, the Sentry Health Kiosk checks all the boxes needed to not only ensure safe access to protect employees, visitors, business partners and the entire community against health threats, but also verify an individual’s credentials. Our kiosk offers everyone peace of mind.”

FaceMe provides an edge-based, cross platform software development kit, including Windows, Linux, Android and iOS, which is suitable for IoT & AIoT hardware to deploy facial recognition, as well as software applications requiring facial recognition.
