Project Overview

"Auxiliary Force Sdn. Bhd. (AFSB), a member of Royal Malaysia Police Cooperative Bhd., is working with YITU Technology (YITU), a pioneer in Artificial Intelligence (AI) research and innovation, to transform and augment Malaysia’s public safety and law enforcement efforts. As YITU’s client in Malaysia, AFSB is the first security force in the country to integrate body-worn cameras with cutting-edge facial recognition technology.

In line with efforts to enhance the way auxiliary police safeguard the community, infrastructure and assets, AFSB has tapped YITU’s facial recognition technology to allow officers to review captured video footage to positively identify persons of interest post-event. Implemented since February 2018, the body-worn cameras are currently in use by auxiliary police officers of AFSB at various critical infrastructure, with plans to increase the roll-out to more locations across Malaysia in the near future. YITU is working with its system integration partner in Malaysia, Build Technology Converge, to deploy the body-worn camera system.

YITU’s facial recognition solutions are currently being used for security at Chinese tourist locations including ports, and public spaces which require high safety standards."
