The Smart ID Engine supports recognition of standard national ID Cards (ID-1 and ID-2 formats in accordance with ISO/IEC 7810:2019), and non-standard (custom) cards, including India’s Aadhaar. The software independently recognizes visual control zones on both sides of the national ID card (including text fields typed in national languages) and a machine-readable zone (MRZ). It allows you not only to recognize all the document data with high accuracy, but also to control data integrity and check for signs of forgery.
In addition to national ID Card scanning, Smart ID Engine recognizes other residence-related documents (permanent residence permits, temporary residence permits, work permits, etc.), issued both in accordance with the ICAO standards and with local regulations. The software recognizes residence-related documents of the United States, the European Union, the CIS, the Middle East, Asia and Africa. If necessary, the recognition of national ID cards can be supplemented with the scanning of bank cards, passports, driver’s licenses and barcodes.
Smart ID Engine contains templates for recognizing national ID cards, which allow you to accurately and quickly scan ID cards of 169 countries. Extracting all the necessary information with our precise proprietary OCR technology is possible not only in English, but also in 101 languages worldwide, including Spanish, French, German, all European languages, the languages of the CIS countries, Arabic, Urdu, Persian, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, syllabic Asian scripts, the languages of Africa and Oceania.
Smart ID Engine works independently from the environment and ensures personal data privacy and security for businesses and users. The software scans ID cards without transferring the data through the network, does not save or store it, and provides the highest accuracy due to advanced AI algorithms and computer vision. Smart ID Engine is a robust solution for national ID cards scanning and recognition, and is HIPAA, GDPR, CCPA-compliant.
All Smart ID Engine AI and computer vision algorithms are intentionally optimized to minimize the environmental impact, in accordance with the Green AI approach. Our state-of-the-art optical text recognition (OCR) technology GreenOCR® minimizes the power consumption during the id scanning process. Thus, it reduces the carbon footprint, and also extends the life of the mobile device on a single charge. That allows our customers to add an ID scanner to mobile apps without big impact to size and costs, while still remaining environment-friendly.
The id scanning software Smart ID Engine is delivered as a standalone SDK (Software Developer Kit) containing all the necessary API descriptions (Application Programming Interface) and integration examples for different programming languages. The developers are provided with the API which helps to integrate Smart ID Engine into the software in C, C++, C#, Java, Python, PHP, Swift, Objective C and use React Native and Flutter frameworks.
Smart ID Engine SDK allows you to turn an iOS or Android-based mobile device into a National ID card scanner. Our original AI algorithms provide high-speed and autonomous National ID card recognition not only in English, but also in the State national languages (~200ms per frame on the iPhone XR), the ability to scan National ID cards at different angles, as well as high-quality recognition under different lighting conditions.
Due to the WebAssembly (WASM) supporting technology, Smart ID Engine National ID card scanning solution can be implemented in all up-to-date devices with installed browsers (Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Chromium, Microsoft Edge and Apple Safari), including smart TVs and consoles. The software does not require special applications or special plugins. The use of unique neural network architectures allows you to recognize video data obtained from low-end webcams with a resolution of 640×480 pixels.
Deep software and hardware optimization of the algorithmic recognition principles for various processor architectures allows Smart ID Engine to autonomously recognize National ID cards on any PCs (including monoblocks and nettops), turning them into high-performance workstations for entering and processing photo and video data obtained from various image capturing devices (webcams, scanners, special document readers). A wide range of software interfaces provides the possibility of native integration into most information systems.
Thanks to thread safety and efficient resources management, Smart ID Engine SDK allows you to implement scalable AI platforms for National ID card processing. Unique algorithms for automatic document identification and localization in images (scans, photo and video data) allow you to automatically process heterogeneous streams of input images. The National ID card recognition performance on modern computers (with an AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3970X processor) is at least 45 images per second.
