MVD is testing portable cameras with face recognition technology NtechLab

NtechLab's portable cameras resemble small walkie-talkies that can be clipped to clothing. Devices can

determine the identity of any person a police officer passes by. The camera identifies the face, compares it against the database and shows whether the person is wanted.

The system also offers all known data abouta person whose face was in the frame. The camera can allocate it at a distance of 4.5 m. The Russian division of the Chinese company Dahua Technology is engaged in the production of the cameras themselves.

According to NtechLab representatives, theythey actually developed portable video recorders with facial recognition technology, but did not comment on their introduction to the Russian security forces. According to them, now these cameras are being tested by private security companies.

Previously, the Information Technology Department of the Mayor's OfficeMoscow began testing smart glasses with built-in facial recognition technology from NtechLab, which they wanted to equip Moscow police officers with in the future. 

Nothing is known about the development of this project yet. 

In September last year in the Moscow systemCCTV integrated face recognition technology from NtechLab. Now, every person who is in the visibility of a network of 170 thousand cameras will be identified. Moscow authorities say it will help speed up the detection of crimes.
