Facial recognition payment system
- The purpose of this project was to work on a future line of the Shanghai metro station. We focused on the payment system and its related products. Our goal was to make the Shanghainese daily journey easier and more fluid.
This service is centered on a facial recognition system. We chose organic lines and a transparent aesthetic in order to create discrete products. Also this aesthetic represents a system, which requires a societal acceptance of a personal data storage philosophy, called “transparency”.
The first product is a boundary, which uses a projected interface. The functions of this product are to create your facial account and to refill your account.
The second product is a facial recognition checkpoint, which functions only as a scanner for user’s faces at the entrances and and the exits of the metro station.
This project was designed by Valentin Gauffre, Arthur Kenzo and François de Martrin-Donos.
