Singapore – September 11, 2018 – Camvi Technologies Inc. deployed its state-of-the-art, patent-pending face recognition technology at the 51st ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting held in Singapore from August 1st to August 4th, 2018. The Silicon Valley-based tech company Camvi has been working with Zoom Tech Pte Ltd, an automatic gate manufacturer in Singapore, to design and develop a next generation auto-gate powered by Camvi’s cutting-edge face recognition technology.


The auto-gate is equipped with a camera, a display panel, and CamviEdge, an embedded face recognition system used to verify the identity of anyone passing through the gate. The auto-gate only opens to authorized personnel.


Zoom Tech was the only automatic gate vendor chosen for the 51st ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting, and Camvi-powered next generation auto-gate was installed at the meeting venue. A list of distinguished guests were authorized for entry and their face photos were pre-registered by CamviEdge. The list included the Foreign Ministers of the ASEAN countries and their partner countries such as the United States Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. The auto-gate performed flawlessly during the meeting.


The Minister for Foreign Affairs of Singapore, Vivian Balakrishnan, was amazed at the speed and accuracy of the auto-gate. “Wow, this thing really works,” commented Dr. Balakrishnan when the auto-gate opened the instant that he came into view.

“The technology behind the next-generation auto-gate comprises two parts,” said John Chen, President and CEO of Camvi, “the first part is our AI-based face recognition technology with the state-of-the-art accuracy and search speed. And the second part is our CamviEdge system which enables large-scale face recognition at the edge, often without a network connection.”

The rapid advancement in face recognition technology and decrease in cost have finally made the commercial deployment of face recognition technology in the access control market a reality. The organizer of the ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting is planning to use the Camvi-powered auto-gates for “everyone” in their next event in November. Over 8,000 people will be able to experience the Camvi-powered face recognition auto-gates, just as the distinguished guests of the 51st ASEAN Foreign Ministers’ Meeting did.
