Abstract: Access control systems play a vital role in safeguarding physical spaces and ensuring the security of sensitive areas. Traditional methods, such as ID cards or keycards, have limitations in terms of security and user convenience. To address these limitations, an access control system utilizing barcode and facial recognition technologies has emerged as an effective solution. This abstract highlights the key features and benefits of an access control system that combines barcode scanning and facial recognition. By integrating these technologies, the system enhances security, accuracy, and user experience. The system utilizes high-quality barcode scanners capable of reading various barcode formats, enabling the quick and reliable authentication of ID cards or badges. Barcode recognition algorithms validate the authenticity of the barcode information against stored records, ensuring only authorized individuals gain access. In parallel, the system employs advanced facial recognition algorithms to capture and analyze facial features. By comparing the extracted facial features with pre-registered records, the system verifies the identity of individuals, providing an additional layer of security. The access control system offers several advantages. It enhances security by combining two-factor authentication through barcode scanning and facial recognition, reducing the risk of unauthorized access or identity fraud. The integration of these technologies strengthens access control measures and ensures the physical presence of authorized individuals. Furthermore, the system improves user experience and convenience. Users can simply present their ID cards or badges to the barcode scanner and undergo a quick facial recognition process, eliminating the need for manual input of codes or passwords. This streamlined approach enhances efficiency, reduces queues, and enhances user satisfaction. The access control system also provides auditability and accountability. Detailed access logs and reporting capabilities enable administrators to track access events, monitor user activities, and generate reports for security analysis, compliance, and incident investigations.
