08 Mar New Radar Sensors May Address Camera Privacy Issues
A Tel Aviv startup called Vayyar Imaging is reportedly developing radar sensing technology capable of building 3D spaces in real time. The technology is expected to solve privacy problems brought by camera and facial recognition surveillance.
The technology is aimed for applications in residential and commercial environments such as care homes, changing rooms and homes where it may be necessary to monitor for safety and security reasons, but seeing faces and bodies would be considered an intrusion of privacy.
Vayyar says its sensors are able to create 3D images using multiple low power radio frequency waves which can even work through walls, smoke or steam. This way, situations can be monitored without personally identifying individuals, which also eliminates the risk of personal images falling into the wrong hands.
