Cognitec's Face Recognition Enhances Digital ID Services for Dutch Driver's License Applications
As an additional check during the application process, RDW uses Cognitec’s technology to establish the applicant’s identity by comparing the newly submitted photo against the last image stored for this person in the Central Driving License Register.
Cognitec’s trusted face recognition technology not only performs the image comparisons, it also checks the new image to ensure it satisfies the ISO/IEC standard for biometric photos.
In addition, the project involves an initial deduplication of the image database, enrolling about 12 million images and comparing them against each other to find duplicate records and clerical errors.
“We have been using face recognition for more than a year to increase the overall quality of the license renewal process, and have just begun to apply the deduplication capabilities of the Cognitec system. This extensive N:N matching process takes time, and needs to be monitored carefully, but it ensures the quality of our database, and prevents false matching errors during future application processes,” says Gert Jan de Nijs, Senior Project Manager at RDW. “We are excited to move toward a fully secure, convenient digital process that provides our citizens with a future-proof ID management system.”
