DERMALOG is looking to capitalize on growing interest in biometric border control at this week’s European Police Congress in Berlin.
In a statement announcing its planned presence at the event, the company emphasized that its biometric border screening technologies are already being used by twelve governments including Algeria, Brunei, Cambodia, Malaysia, Maldives, and Singapore. DERMALOG offers ‘Self Registration Kiosk’ and automated eGate solutions, and its technology relies primarily on fingerprint recognition, but also supports iris and facial recognition.
The latter could prove particularly appealing to clients in the border control sector, with various governments around the world adopting face-scanning systems that can match travelers to their identity documents and even to passenger manifests, as in the case of the US Customs and Border Protection agency’s expanding biometric airport screening program. Meanwhile, the international Known Traveler program launched at the recent World Economic Forum is helping to further popularize the idea of biometric border processing across the border security, commercial travel, and tourism sectors.
The 21st European Police Congress will run from February 6th to 7th, with DERMALOG slated to showcase its solutions from stand 23 in Level B.
