The main objective of the Vixia Project is to solve the problem of automatic facial recognition in highly complex scenarios such as access control at events with a large number of attendants, which demand top security measures because of the institutional character of the event, the attendance of personalities, or a high risk of intrusion.

The application scenario of the project is characterized by non-controlled illumination conditions, non-collaboration of the users, and need for real-time management of the captured data. Vixia is aimed at the acquisition of the necessary technical knowledge in facial biometrics for increasing the security level of access control systems based on radio-frequency identifiers (RFID). To this end, a combined scheme is being developed, using both physical access cards and processing of biometric features, which are personal and nontransferable.
