The technology is called “Eyen”, which is the Arabic word for sight and vision, has been integrated in the new smart travel gate that will be launched soon.

“The new gate using ‘eyen’ technology will enhance passengers’ experience with minimal amount of changes in habit norms,” said Thani Alzaffin, director general and board member of Emaratech. “The system also maintains highest level of security using the latest iris recognition technology.

“At Emaratech, we focus first on people and then on process. We study behaviours, review existing processes, analyze the operational and technical challenges, in order to deploy business solutions that enhance the overall experience by process re-engineering.”

Emaratech is a strategic technology partner of the General Directorate of Residency and Foreigners Affairs in Dubai, providing the government agency with biometric smart gates and e-gates.
