System and method for physical access verification using augmented reality device.

Nowadays, it is very common, that we are working in the environment which is heavily occupied by different people. Large areas, like offices, manufacturing plants, airports, require reliable physical access restrictions for the employees. Those restrictions are even more important in our century, because of high terrorists thread across the world. Most access control solutions focus and relies exclusively on AAA solutions (authentication, authorization, and accounting) and are often based on the

wireless badges, which are the only measure to allow access.

Such solutions, however do not resolve situation where such badge is stolen, or someone uses the opportunity to access the facility tail-gaiting after another person. Therefore it is very important to control persons within the area covered by the access restriction. For crowded areas such control is time consuming and insufficient. Normal access identifiers are kept in excessively unsuitable, blind spots, and photographs of the owners are barely visible. This fact has a significant impact on the effectiveness in detecting people who are not authorized to stay within restricted areas.

The solution to address the business problem defined above, assumes usage of augmented reality devices like smart phones, tablets, heads-on display etc. for physical access rights verification. The information about ID, picture, locations granted and timestamp of accessing particular area are stored in the local data store. That data is compared to the actual information about the employee gathered by wireless technology badge reader, augmented reality device and analyzed by machine learning and data processing systems. It allows to indicate unauthorized access to the restricted areas and detect stolen or compromised access badges.

Our idea introduces new way to access control not only during access and authorization check, but also inside the facility. It allows to check person access rights to being on territory of specific area. It helps to localize person with unauthorized access.

We leverage augmented reality used by security personnel (with different devices, e.g.: smart phones, tablets, heads-on display devices or other

wearables) to verify access permission inside facility.

We use available machine learning and data processing systems for real time face recognition in comparison with person picture stored in a data store (badge could be user RFID card, smart phone, or other device which allows wireless communication with that data store)
