Toyota Adopts Facial Recognition For Quality Control

CyberLink Corp., a pioneer of AI and facial recognition technologies, has collaborated with ITOCHU Techno-Solutions to integrate with its AI facial recognition engine, FaceMe. As a FaceMe partner, ITOCHU Techno-Solutions used FaceMe to develop a new version of its ‘Vehicle Inspection Information System’ for adoption by Toyota Motor Corporation to improve vehicle quality management.

Vehicle Inspection Information System

The Vehicle Inspection Information System is a quality management system for reviewing the inspection results of finished vehicles. FaceMe provides high-speed and precise facial recognition to ensure that only certified inspectors can inspect finished vehicles. Its touchless facial authentication and high accuracy also improve work productivity. Moreover, its ability to perform facial authentication without inspectors needing to remove their hats and masks helps prevent infectious diseases.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, users authenticate their faces while wearing masks. “Due to recent COVID-19 infections, our workers must wear masks all the time,” said Mr. Imato, Assistant Manager of Toyota Motor Corporation. “We’ve adopted FaceMe because of its outstanding performance, specifically in face matching when performing facial recognition on mask-wearers. It allows us to improve productivity and concentrate on the inspection work itself. Moreover, CyberLink has also supported us in eliminating environmental problems usually encountered with facial recognition, such as bright factory lighting and dimly lit car interiors.”

“We are honored that ITOCHU Techno-Solutions has integrated our FaceMe facial recognition SDK in its Vehicle Inspection Information System, and Toyota Motor Corporation, whose top quality represents Japanese manufacturing worldwide, has chosen this system,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink Corp. “FaceMe brings world-class accuracy and anti-spoofing technology to ITOCHU’s system, making Toyota Motor Corporation’s quality control processes more convenient and productive. It has also helped prevent infectious diseases while creating a market for smart factories.”

“Using deep neural network AI technology, FaceMe is an attractive product due to its quick speed and high accuracy in facial recognition,” said Mr. Matsunaga, Division Manager of ITOCHU Techno-Solutions Co., Ltd. “Our customers have spoken highly of FaceMe, so we are delighted to be able to integrate it with our systems. CyberLink’s support during the verification process was also helpful. We plan to extend our services to other factories in the future, so we appreciate their continued support.”
