Digital transformation is happening at a rapid pace in the air travel industry, particularly with respect to biometrics and digital identity technologies. The past couple of weeks alone have brought news of biometric passenger processing deployments in at the Sacramento International Airport and at the UAE’s Sharjah Airport, and this kind of progress is likely only to pick up speed in the wake of the pandemic’s disruptions.
To help industry professionals get a handle on this important trend, NEC has published a new White Paper, “Investing in Aviation’s Identity-First Future“. The paper covers a range of factors and considerations, including the evolution of passenger demands, key trends driving the adoption of biometrics and AI, and information on how to best invest in digital transformation.
The White Paper also includes global market forecasts concerning the air travel industry from Acuity Market Intelligence, in partnership with FindBiometrics; and the “Biometric Digital ID Prism”, an infographic laying out the major industry players and their position in a forward-looking identity ecosystem.
NEC is a notable authority on airport biometrics. Its technology and solutions have been deployed at airports around the world, with its NEC I:Delight facial recognition solution having taken on a particularly prominent role in airport transformation.
On that note, the company will be showcasing I:Delight along with its other airport solutions at this week’s Passenger Terminal Expo in Amsterdam. The company’s representatives can be found at booth 2140 on the exhibition floor.
