Ayonix , Incorporated


Company Introduction

Ayonix Inc. is
a high technology provider of company
-
focused information technology and face
recognition solutions for the global marketplace.

It

is

headquartered in
the center of
Osaka

city
/Japan.
It

provides
biometric face recognition SW/HW
products to security companies, system integrators and Major software/hardware manufacturers.

Ayonix Inc. develops its
own
face recognition S
oftware Development Kits

by the integration of its
fast algorithms and high reliab
ility. Ayonix's SDKs can be used for human
-
free access control
systems, surveillance systems, computer security, banking, entertainment, law enforcement
applications,
Hotel VIP service
and customer managements etc.

Ayonix’s facial identification algorithm
s are all Ayonix’s patented algorithms. The algorithms
developed are based on the state
-
of
-
art techniques which have been
also
recognized by Osaka City
technology innovation contest (March, 2007).

With its high technology and market, its targets are not o
nly Japan, but it targets a global
marketplace, too.

Industrial Applications and Projects


Ayonix Inc. envolves many applications and projects. Some of them are listed below:



Automatic Reception Desk

Automatic Reception Desk is a product that welcomes the customer a
t company entrance and
sends this information to the responsible person in the company.

Currently, some companies assign gate
-
security guideman to communicate with the people at the
gate and some companies put one intercom or telephone or a bell. Once the

customer comes, he
should touch on intercom or bell or dial up the internal number of the person he wants to talk.

Whereas, Automatic Reception Desk recognizes the incoming people in early stages and informs the
company person about him. Customer does no
t have to wait at the gate.

Furthermore, the system say a message like “Good Morning Mr.
Tanaka” or “Mr.Tanaka, we have
been waiting for you. Mr. Nakata will be shortly here”

This system comes with software+camera or hardware+camera. It has speech engines

in

English, Turkish, Japanese.

System makes VIP services better and keep the Customer satisfaction high. The product is planned
to be released at the end of 2007 and now it is under testing.




Access Control

Access Control checks the entrances and exits o
f a door. One person at once is recognized. It is
applicable for controlling the entrances of companies, R&D divisions, factories, Hotels, Airports.

Our first target is Hotel check
-
in and Apartments.




Micproprocessor application



We are developing a su
per
-
parallel micro processor with Renesas Technology. Renesas
technology is a Japan leading
Semiconductor Company

established by Mitsubishi Electric and
Hitachi
.

Using microprocessor, we target to obtain a speed that is 1,000 times faster than the speed of

the fastest face recognition software in the world.

The target application is the embedded industry (Mobile phones, Video cameras and Digital
Televisions)




Fac
ial mosaic

for Department Stores

Face Recognition is not only for security. It has many applica
tions. One of projects we work is
for protecting people privacy. We are undergoing an application, where we put mosaic to some
faces.
Our application analyzes the faces in real time inside the Department stores. If it finds a
previously registered face, it

puts a mosaic into the face and it is not recorded into DVRs.




Ayonix Techniques

Work Items

We plan to assign the following works to students:

1.

Algorithm Testing and improvements

We have 10 different face recognition algori
thms and 8 different face detection algorithms. We
need those components


testings and improvements of their performances. In addition to that, we
need to know the best combinations of Face detection and Recognition algorithms to achieve a
high speed and/o
r best performance. Therefore, some evaluations and testing on them will be
needed.

Those algorithms are fully documented and essential information is provided prior to work.



2.

Application Development

We have three implementations: Software, Hardware, Micr
oprocessors

Software: PC
-
Based applications

Hardware: PowerPC or commercially available board
-
based application

Microprocessors: SoC
1
-
based application


For Students who are interested in either of
them
, one theme is assigned. The final work is
commerciali
zed.

The work that is assigned to the students can be embedded into our existing products or it
becomes a final product. In either case, company has all rights of the product
s
.

Product know
-
how and any knowledge along with product specifications and deta
il sheets are
provided by our corporation.
