Alcatraz, a developer of autonomous access control products, announced it has joined the NVIDIA Metropolis Software Partner program and is leveraging the NVIDIA Jetson Edge AI platform to create a real-time machine learning and computer vision multi-sensor embedded system.
Alcatraz offers the Rock, a touchless and secure physical access control platform that works with any access control system, delivering an autonomous solution on the edge. It replaces or augments badging as a credential with opt-in identity management, 3D sensing, and artificial intelligence to enable highly secure and frictionless entry into physical locations.
The Rock uses passive 3D sensing, machine learning for increased security, and accurate tailgating detection while intelligently enrolling employees as they are badging in, eliminating the headaches associated with traditional enrolment. A newly added mask enforcer feature offers businesses the ability to comply with increasing state-mandated pandemic-related mask orders.
“We’re innovating the physical security space with the creation of autonomous access control that works with any existing provider,” said Alcatraz Chief Revenue Officer Tina D’Agostin. “Joining the NVIDIA Metropolis Software Partner Program will enrich our machine learning and computer vision multi-sensor embedded system, allowing us to develop and deliver one of the most technologically advanced solutions on the market.”
With cutting-edge technology and an extensive developer ecosystem, NVIDIA Metropolis helps businesses create, deploy, and scale AI and IoT applications – from edge to cloud. The partner certification program offers system design tools and turnkey software packages enabling pre-validated, enterprise-ready intelligent video analytics (IVA) solutions that can be deployed to build smarter and safer cities worldwide.
The certified software, once deployed in the field, makes it hassle-free for companies to manage and upgrade software easily and scale out their IVA solutions everywhere.
