Human Vision Components (HVC) 

Up-to-date Information

Product Introduction

OKAO Visionの詳細はこちらThe Human Vision Components (HVC) incorporates
10 algorithms of the OKAO Vision Image Sensing Technology,
including Face Recognition, Expression Estimation
and Hand Detection, to recognize the conditions of people.
Information on people's conditions can be obtained by
just mounting an HVC on equipment.
People's conditions recognizable simply by mounting an HVC on equipment

Regardless of the CPU performance of a customer's equipment, simply mounting an HVC on the equipment enables the customer to obtain the results of advanced image processing as a sensor output.

Full range of functions

Ten different sensing functions are incorporated to recognize the intentions and conditions of people from a variety of perspectives.

Available functions are: 1) Face Detection, 2) Human Body Detection, 3) Gender Estimation, 4) Age Estimation, 5) Gaze Estimation, 6) Facial Pose Estimation, 7) Face Recognition, 8) Expression Estimation (satisfied, unsatisfied, five different expressions: happiness, surprise, anger, sadness, and neutral), 9) Hand Detection, and 10) Blink Estimation.

High precision

Accurate recognition of people's conditions and intentions is enabled under a variety of situations in which a customer's equipment is used.

Examples of Applications

Optimal air conditioner control is possible through detection of the position and number of people in a room. Control can also vary depending on age and gender, or through the identification of a specific person.

Home appliances

Information on consumers who access these devices can be collected, including gender and age groups. HVC's facial pose, gaze and expression estimation enables consumer preferences and purchasing behaviors to be detected.

Marketing research (POS registers and automatic venders)

Hands-free control of equipment is possible through the use of hand gestures and gazes.

Industrial equipment (food processing equipment)

Robots can react to the motions or facial expressions of users.
