How passport scanner works

Smart ID Engine uses advanced computer vision and machine learning algorithms to automatically identify the passport type, recognize all the necessary text fields, and extract graphic zones such as signatures, fingerprints, and face verification. The software can also independently recognize a visual inspection zone of the passport, text fields printed in both English and national languages, and a machine-readable zone. Additionally, Smart ID Engine has a face matching technology that allows you to verify the photo extracted from an MRTD document with a selfie taken on the same device, which enhances security and helps prevent fraud.
