Panasonic face recognition technology can be used in situations where parts of the face are hidden with sunglasses or masks, where the face is slanted, or where there is a significant difference in brightness. The cost is monthly, and there is a fee according to the number of registered faces (5 yen per person) and the number of authentications (1 yen per person) (all without tax).

 It is offered as a function of Panasonic’s B2B IoT service “μSockets”. According to the company, it can be used to manage entry exit at multiple locations, improve the efficiency of movement within locations, and prevent impersonation.
