Facial recognition (or “FR” for short) is booming, showing up in more and more products, and the FR market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 16.6% from $3.2 billion in 2019 to $7 billion in 2024.1 FR technology has enabled advances in public safety, biometric security, and convenience, but critics point out that it can also be applied in ways that might seem like “big brother” surveillance.2
There are 62 million security cameras in the U.S. alone,1 and roughly 650 million facial recognition (FR) cameras worldwide,2 with millions more FR-capable devices carried around every day in people’s pockets.

This paper discusses 3D sensing and how NIR light is used for facial recognition systems. It explains the importance of measuring radiant intensity of NIR emissions and the challenges of obtaining accurate measurement to ensure the quality of facial recognition systems in devices such as smartphones, laptops, and automobiles. It introduces Radiant's integrated NIR Intensity Lens solution and outlines the solution's advantages for evaluating NIR emitters for use in consumer products.
Learn about applications and performance considerations of near-infrared light used for sensing inside the vehicle, presented by Radiant Automotive Business Leader, Matt Scholz.
This week, thousands of professionals in the optics, photonics, lighting, camera, lens, display, AR/VR, and related industries will be gathering in San Francisco for a series of events held by SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics. The first event (taking place currently) is the 3rd annual Augmented, Virtual, and Mixed Reality Conference, February 2-4 at Moscone Center West.
Automobiles are getting smarter and smarter, as new innovations in monitoring, sensing, advanced driver assistance (ADAS), and diagnostic systems continue to enhance vehicle performance, comfort, and safety. From the latest headlamps that self-adjust to ambient light and weather conditions, to facial recognition unlock features, to fully autonomous vehicles that monitor and respond to the 360-degree environment, designers and manufacturers keep advancing new concepts and capabilities.
The TT-NIRI module of TrueTest Software provides a test suite to efficiently perform high-resolution angular measurement of NIR light distributions, as well as dots in structured light patterns produced by diffractive optical elements (DOE).
