Design and construction of a system for recognition of persons (offenders) based on face images captured on photograph or video material

Start: January 2016
Finish: October 2017

The goal of this project is to build a system for biometric identification of perpetrators of offences or criminals based on photographs and/or video materials. The biometric part of the system will consist of integrated modules, including face detection module, surveillance module, “biometric engines” for face and silhouette recognition, and fusion module generating biometric profiles. Biometric modules will be integrated with a database, which will integrate the biometric data with the police records. The system is thought as an interactive tool and will be operating in various application scenarios, including face detection, isolation of video frames containing faces, surveillance in video materials and identification of persons marked on photo and video materials using the biometric profiles. Modular construction enables for easy supplementing the scenario list and actualization of biometric techniques. The system will be an indispensable tool for personal identification tasks.
