Sertis has launched artificial intelligence face recognition software called Sertis Face Scan.

The new technology can operate in real-time with precision and aims to provide an improved passenger experience by optimising the speed and safety of the airline boarding process.

The firm has teamed up with AirAsia to test facial recognition boarding systems at Senai and Kuching International Airports in Malaysia. This system will go live later this year.

After the deployment of Sertis Face Scan software at Senai and Kuching airports in Malaysia, Sertis has bolstered their partnership with AirAsia through the installation of a face recognition system for access gates at RedQ, which is AirAsia’s headquarters in Kuala Lumpur.

Sertis Face Scan consists of AI algorithms that are precise across the population.

Millions of high diversity images with a range of ages, genders, and ethnicities, have been fine-tuned. Moreover, the software is hardware optimised, enabling it to operate on resource-constrained devices at real-time speed.

This process in turn aids in reducing hardware costs, giving customers a more reliable face recognition system for boarding processes or access control.

Sertis chief executive and founder Tee Vachiramon said: “Sertis has developed Sertis Face Scan to deliver accurate and reliable AI-powered face recognition system for airlines and airports around the world. Our partnership with AirAsia, a leading low-cost airline in Asia, is proof that Sertis can deliver world-class solutions for the aviation industry.”
