Morpho deploys biometric e-Gates in New Zealand

 

Since Morpho introduced its SmartGate technology in New Zealand, 6 million people have used it to pass through customs.

Morpho has now just confirmed the deployment of a SmartGate Plus trial at Auckland International Airport, which will be tested through the New Zealand Customs Service. Two thousand passengers per week are expected to trial the new system.

“SmartGate Plus is a clear reflection of our collaborative approach with New Zealand Customs to create, build and deploy the next generation in border control solutions”, Bruno Pattyn, Managing Director of Morpho’s local subsidiary, Morpho Australasia said. “This new technology has the capability to further simplify and speed up border processing in order to meet ever-evolving border challenges across the region.”

Morpho’s SmartGate system supports multi-modal biometrics, and according to the company, uses e-gates with a smaller footprint.  Currently, passenger identities are verified using facial recognition.

“The biometric self-processing technology has streamlined passenger processing and provided a secure, efficient way to clear passport control and we are pleased to be involved in testing the next generation SmartGate Plus.”

Reported previously, Morpho also recently signed a partnership with INTERPOL to provide a range of biometric solutions and technical support, including its automated biometric identification systems and facial recognition technology.
