To respond to the request, the Walk-through Facial Recognition System that utilizes the facial recognition technology from NEC is the answer.

Shingo Ogawa, Manager of NEC Corporation, said, "When using a facial recognition device, the individual security check which is usually done by security personnel or receptionists is now conducted by a computer system.

The NEC's facial recognition technology has been rated number one in the world for three years in a row. It's time consuming for checking the face image that belongs to the real person when conducting the individual check. With this system, the point is that the facial recognition can be done instantly without any delay."

Also, it's easy to carry and install, and can be utilized for temporary setup.

He further said, "The device has been used at the Rio Olympics in Brazil and at international rugby matches held domestically. In the future, we would like this device to be used in the Tokyo Olympics to ensure safety and security."

Thailand has achieved a rapid economic growth in recent years.

However, in mountain areas that are far away from metropolitan territories, the living conditions can still be challenging.

Despite the toughness, Thailand is a country that thinks highly of education and where everyday children are eager to learn.

Here is the mountain area of Chiang Mai Prefecture in northern Thailand, Japan's Meidensha firm is offering support to those children.

In order to enhance the children's learning experience, Meidensha is helping build new schools.

Nipon Sengsuebphol, Deputy GM, Administration Department, Thai Meidensha Co., Ltd, said, "We are hoping that the students who studied here can come back when they are older so that they can help the school and contribute to the development of this region."

At King Mongkut's Institute of Technology Ladkrabang, which bears the future of Thailand's technology, Meidensha organized endowed courses to students in the Electrical Engineering department which is connected to the field of the company's expertise on the latest developments in the electrical machinery field.

A student said,"I hope I can work for a Japanese company in the future, because Japan is a kind of new technology leader."

Masayuki Inagi, General Manager, Overseas Business Strategic Management Group, "As a part of the celebration events for our company's 120th anniversary, we have started different activities that contribute to the region's development. Through the volunteer activities, we take it as a mission to support the infrastructure of the society along with the children and students who will be responsible for the future of Thailand."
