Heart rate measurement makes digital authentication more reliable [FR content]

Called “rPPG” sensor, this technology reinforces the already robust solution developed by Unissey in the field of biometrics by facial recognition. But what exactly is it about? Measuring heart rate in real time to confirm that the person trying to authenticate to access a service is who they say they are. More details in this article published in Les Echos.

Article about the rPPG sensor

Unimaginable, unthinkable, even totally impossible, but very real! A technology combining artificial intelligence and heart sensor to authenticate a person by means of a simple video selfie, a real revolution thought and developed at Unissey.

The young startup, which until now has specialized in facial recognition biometrics, is taking its research one step further and adding another brick to its already powerful security system. The measurement of the heart rate in the authentication process strengthens the algorithms in the fight against fraud attempts. In addition to detecting the face through the video selfie, the solution will also have to take into account a second determining factor: is the person breathing? Because breathing is a proof of life, which is the very basis of a technology designed to detect the living.
