Importing the Face Capture SDK to a Project

To begin integrating Face Capture into your project, you will need to import the framework into your project.

Select File -> “Add Files to <ProjectName>…”. Navigate to the installer’s lib folder and select AwFaceCaptureFrameWork.framework. Check “Copy items if needed”. In the “Add to targets” section select the target that will be using the framework. Press “Add” to add the AwFaceCaptureFrameWork.framework to the Project Navigator list.

Click the project name in the Project Navigator to open your project settings. Go to the “General” tab. Scroll to the “Frameworks, Libraries, and Embedded Content” section. AwFaceCaptureFrameWork.framework should be selected as “Embed & Sign”.

Head to the “Build Settings” tab. Select “All” settings with “Combined”. In the “Build Options” category disable bitcode by setting “Enable Bitcode” to “No”. Scroll down until you see the section titled “Apple Clang – Preprocessing”. Add “__IOS__” to the “Preprocessor Macros” setting in both “Debug” and “Release”.

Include the FaceCapture.swift and FaceCaptureErrorInfo.swift source code files in your application.

Inside of your UIViewController class add:

private var faceCapture: FaceCapture!

You can now access the FaceCapture API. See the manual for additional detail

Running the AwareID Document Capture Demo

The AwareID Document Capture installer comes with two demos DocAuthAwareIdDemo and DocAuthAwareIdDemoQR. Each demo will capture a face then document in order to perform a facial match for validation.

DocAuthAwareIdDemo

Launching the DocAuthAwareIdDemo for the first time will bring you to the settings page. You will need to enter the following information obtained from the AwareID admin server before you will be able to enroll:

  • Host URL
  • Customer Name
  • API Key
  • Client Secret

Please see the server documentation for additional details on these fields.

Finish filling out the User Name, Email, and Phone Number fields to complete the settings page. Press the Back button at the top of the settings page to reach the home screen. Accept the prompt requesting permission to access the device’s camera(s). Hit the Enroll button and follow the directions on screen to perform a facial capture. Once a face has been captured, the demo will automatically switch to landscape orientation to perform a document capture. After successfully completing both face and document captures, the demo will return you to the home screen.

Press the Verify button to initiate a facial image capture. After processing, the demo will pop up either “Authentication Success” or “Authentication Failed” based on the verification results.

DocAuthAwareIdDemoQR

Launching the DocAuthAwareIdDemoQR for the first time will immediately prompt you for permission to access the device’s camera(s). After accepting permissions, you will be brought to the home screen. Press the Scan QR Code button to begin enrollment. Scan the QR code generated from the Web App to enroll. Please see the AwareID server documentation for additional details on generating the QR code.

After scanning the QR code successfully, the demo will go to the face capture screen. Follow the directions on screen to capture a facial image. Once a face has been captured, the demo will switch to landscape orientation to perform a document capture. Completing the document capture will end the enrollment process and bring you back to the home screen.

To perform verification, either scan the QR code again or trigger a push notification from the web application. This will initiate a facial image capture. After processing, the demo will pop up either “Authentication Success” or “Authentication Failed” based on the verification results.
