XPONENTIAL 2018 (Denver) and Connect:ID (Washington) are the two unavoidable events in which the Spanish technology center is present from May 1 to 3
In the first one, Gradiant is exposing their own system for drones detection and neutralization, as well as other technologies and applications in the field security with drones.
At Connect:ID, the center is showing their biometric solutions for face, voice and handwritten signature recognition with mobile devices, in addition to their privacy preservation technologies for information processing in the encrypted domain.
Gradiant is taking part at XPonential 2018 for the third time. This is the most important international fair for unnamed vehicles. This year, the Colorado Convention Center in Denver is hosting the event from April 30 to May 3 where the most relevant actors are showing the latest advances.
Hand in hand with ICEX, inside the Spain Trade and Investment space in booth 1611, Gradiant is showing in the States UAS technologies and their own developments in life detection technologies. As Iago Gómez, head of UAS at Gradiant, explains “taking part in this event one more time is essential to validate and show our innovation and development work with drones, our goal is to give companies the best solutions”.
The technologies our team is showing at XPonential been developed and validated by both, national and international companies and prove Gradiant’s innovation skills in such a competitive industry like unmanned aerial vehicles. “Being present at such an event for the third consecutive year is an important recognition to the quality of our work, in addition to as well as the confirmation of mature state of our technologies in an exceptional international space,” adds José A. Rodríguez Artolazábal, head of Video Analytics at Gradiant.
At XPonential 2018, Gradiant is presenting, in one of the poster sessions, the challenges and applications of intelligent video analysis technologies for UAS. Highlighting marine surveillance from a UAV, as well as search and rescue and other land management applications.
Advanced technologies with drones for security
In this international and specialized scenario, Gradiant is showcasing Counter UAS, a system that comprises a suite of technologies for unmanned vehicles threat detection, classification, tracking and neutralization. This system, specially designed for critical infrastructure protection and a perfect match for other surveillance scenarios, is modular, scalable and decentralized. Counter-Fi detects and neutralizes UAVs using WiFi as communication systems. RF Ear sensor uses signal intelligence techniques to detect drones by using its own communications link. Smart Eye is a module based on passive EO/IR sensors, able to work as both primary or secondary sensor for automatic UAVs detection, tracking and classification on fixed and moving cameras. SJam is an adaptive waveform generator for neutralizing drones.
Besides, Gradiant is presenting security, defense and victims detections solutions. Alivetor is a drone payload designed for the detection of victims after earthquakes and other catastrophic situations resulting in people trapped under debris. Specially designed for alive victims detection, Alivetor is a new tool for first responders that allows them to find survivors in a quick and reliable way. Designed by Gradiant, Alivetor has been awarded at European Satellite Navigation Contest (ESNC 2017).
Biometric authenticators for banking and healthcare
To end up the US tour, Gradiant is assisting Connect:ID 2018, one of the biggest international conferences focused on biometric technologies, next-generation secure credentials, advanced digital ID solutions, mobile ID and fintech. In this context, the Spanish technology center is showing face, voice and signature biometric authenticators for digital on boarding and KYC processes with mobile devices.
Gradiant Signer, specifically designed for Samsung Galaxy Note, allows accessing and securely signing any document anywhere. The user is authenticated via Samsung Pass to get access to a confidential document and sign it with S-Pen anywhere and anytime in a secure and reliable way, since user’s signature is verified through Gradiant’ DSV technology.
faceIDNN verifies user’s identity by comparing the face with the photograph in his/her ID, driver’s license or passport. Using both images, the verification techniques developed by Gradiant verify in real time if they belong to the same person.
Likewise, selfie&sign is a secure and easy-to-use solution for mobile biometric login. This face biometric recognition solution incorporates an advanced mechanism to avoid spoofing based on the simultaneous verification of the user’s handwritten signature.
Gradiant’ experience in facial recognition has allowed developing techniques for anti-spoofing attacks, as well as guaranteeing verification even when there are changes of appearance in front of the photograph of the ID card, or the person has aged. Both, faceIDNN and selfie&sign incorporate these technological innovations, especially in dealing with the customer and digital on boarding services.
