Border Control and Airport Biometrics
A key area of application for biometric technology is at the border. Anyone who’s traveled by air can tell you security checkpoints border crossings are some of the most frustrating places to have to move through. Thankfully, biometric technology is helping automate the process. Trusted passenger screening initiatives and automated eGates and kiosks are helping make the international travel experience easier on passengers while upping the efficiency for government agencies and keeping borders safer than ever before.
