Mobile Telecommunications Company MTS integrates Smart Passport Reader into its SIM card issuing kiosks to optimize SIM purchase. Smart Engines OCR solution enables to provide seamless user on-boarding by quickly extracting customer identity data.
The SIM vending kiosk is equipped with two video cameras. The first one allows scanning the passport and prefill necessary data and the other one is placed above the screen, and serves for obtaining the image of customer’s face. The system then compares that image to the photo in the passport for verification purposes.
As can be seen in the video, upon successful verification the customer is offered to choose a tariff and get his SIM card.
The problem of user verification was solved by face recognition technologies developed at VisionLabs. Both technical solutions of Smart Engines and VisionLabs have been integrated by LETA IT Company.
