  • face Identification

  • Biometric Identification

  • Depth Maps

  • Infrared Sensors


We are patenting an authentication system for low-light-level environments.
Input images are then sent to an embedded platform (like Nvidia Jetson), equipped with a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU), able to provide after a few tens of milliseconds the output of the system, i.e. a continuous value indicating the belonging of the subject to one of the identities previously registered in the system.
The use of images from depth sensors makes it possible to obtain a functioning system even in the absence or partial presence of light sources, as well as to satisfy constraints regarding the maintenance of user privacy.


  • Working in low-light-level environments

  • High-level performance

  • Real-Time processing

  • Low hardware and energy consumption requirements
