Vuzix and NNTC Announce the World’s First Fully Autonomous AI-Powered Face Recognition System Integrated on Smart Glasses

ROCHESTER, N.Y., June 10, 2019 — Vuzix® Corporation (NASDAQ: VUZI), (“Vuzix” or, the “Company”), a leading supplier of Smart Glasses and Augmented Reality (AR) technology and products, together with NNTC, a Dubai (UAE) based software developer and solution provider, announce iFalcon Face Control™ Mobile, the world’s first fully autonomous AI-powered face recognition system integrated with Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses.

The iFalcon Face Control mobile solution using the Vuzix Blade was demoed at the Minister of Interior Innovation Summit in Abu Dhabi in February.  Approximately 50 Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses have been delivered to NNTC and are currently being deployed into several security operations in the region.

Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses, which are nearly indistinguishable from everyday sunglasses, utilize the built-in camera on the glasses to detect faces and then transmits the information to a wearable portable computer over a wireless channel.  The portable computer processes face images and compares them with faces from the database stored locally to find the match.  Once there is a match, the solution retrieves relevant information from the database and instantly sends an alert to the wearer via the Vuzix Blade AR Smart Glasses.

The iFalcon Face Control Mobile is designed for law enforcement officers and security guards on patrol and when synched to Vuzix Blade Smart Glasses enables security personnel to easily and discretely screen a crowd to match faces against a database of violators, missing people or suspects.

  • Detects up to 15 faces per videoframe in under 1 second
  • Can handle 1 million unique faces in database
  • No cloud data connectivity is required

“We are very happy with the way Vuzix Blade complements our wearable face recognition solution. First of all, our customers love the product design and features. As a software developer, we appreciate the flexibility, technical and pre-sale support that Vuzix offers. They also have solid vision for the product future that gives a peace of mind to us and the customers as well” said Dmitry Doshaniy, General Manager at NNTC

“The overall design and the see-through waveguide optics of the Vuzix Blade are critical must have features for deployments into security operations.  We’re excited to see this customer move rapidly from proof of concept to deployment within security operations,” said Paul Travers, President and Chief Executive Officer at Vuzix.
