Students register delight at new face-fit check-in.
HIGH-TECH facial recognition technology has swept aside the
old-fashioned signing of the register at a school.
Sixth-formers will now have their faces scanned as they arrive in the
morning at the City of Ely Community College.
It is one of the first schools in the UK to trial the new technology
with its students.
Face Register uses the latest high-tech gadgets to register students in
and out of school in just 1.5 seconds.
The technology works by scanning faces with an infra-red light and
matching their image with key facial features stored on a secure system.
Not only a hit with the students, who enjoy signing themselves in, the
system is saving a member of staff about an hour and a half each day in
