OMRON Human Image Sensing Technology - OKAO

In partnership with Omron
Start Time:

Omron has been a pioneer in Image Sensing Technology for over 20 years with its OKAO Vision software IP leading the way. The term OKAO is the Japanese word for “face”, so it’s no surprise that Omron’s technology offers features such as Face Detection, Face Recognition, and Age/Gender Estimation. Over time, the OKAO sophisticated algorithm has progressed to take into consideration a variety of conditions and environments.

Today, OKAO demonstrates high performance on a variety of applications regardless of face type and photoshoot conditions. The expansive OKAO software library of image sensing functions to understand humans includes:

Detection Functions:


 

Recognize/Estimate Functions:


Adjust/Correction Functions:


For many, incorporating software technology can be the most challenging aspect in a design. OKAO technology provides flexibility as it can work with any platform (OS Independent) with a system requirement of only 32-bit or 64-bit.  

The versatility of OKAO allows it to be used in multiple applications such as Industrial Controls, Basic Security, Communication Robots, Digital Camera, Mobile Devices, Digital Signage, etc. varying over multiple industries. You can find examples of where human interaction is a critical component for the overall user experience below:

  • Factory Automation – User access control for machines using Face Recognition.
  • Robotics – Communication Robots can adjust talking speed and volume by using Facial Expression Estimation.
  • Video Conferencing – Estimate the face orientation (Facial Parts Detection) and/or gaze angle of the participants (Gaze Estimation) to know the ratio of time the participants have been watching the screen.
  • Vending Machines – Age/Gender Estimation to make product recommendations to customers.
  • Home Appliance – Energy conservation using Human Body Detection for home appliances like air conditioners, which can power down when no one is present.
  • Digital Signage – Age/Gender Estimation can assist in effective advertisements, changing the ad based on who is in front of the sign.

 

Key Features of OKAO Technology:

  • High Speed Processing: Performs with high speed and accuracy despite small CPUs
  • High Accuracy: High Detection Performance
  • High Robustness: High Performance in poor lighting conditions

Another key highlight of OKAO technology is its small footprint and memory requirements. Essentially OKAO software can work with any embedded linux platform such as raspberry pi, and more, which allows users to develop diverse applications.

Through OMRON innovation, OKAO Human Image Sensing Technology brings users variety, flexibility and versatility to meet an array of design needs. Join the upcoming OMRON webinar and discover how OKAO technology can fit into your application.
