Vision-Box unveils new facial recognition solution for border control
Vision-Box has unveiled Seamless Totem, a new multi-context facial recognition technology designed to improve passenger identification and homeland security.
Announced at AFCEA’s 2017 Federal Identity Forum & Homeland Security Conference in Washington, Seamless Totem facilitates a seamless travel experience by offering a quick enrollment and verification modality to identify travelers.
The solution features new facial detection capabilities to be used for a range of applications throughout the travel process, including check-in, border control, boarding, and land borders or ports.
Facilitating a non-stop and contactless airport passenger journey, Seamless Totem delivers an on-the-move, contactless, streamlined experience for travelers.
The solution eliminates stops at control points and represents the next step in the way citizens and passengers interact with travel stakeholders or the government.
The new traveler interaction points are completely self-service, with minimum size and environmental footprint, biometric-enabled for speedy on-the-go transactions, IoT ready for full connectivity with a common-use orchestration platform, modular for maximum replicability and ease of operations, and new personalized engagement.
“Deploying an integrated biometrically enhanced solution across the US with the new multifunction biometric totem for enrollment and verification will represent a huge boost in traveler experience and public safety,” Vision-Box CEO Miguel Leitmann said. “The new totem puts forward the most efficient and reliable facial recognition technology ever, with a low impact in the environment and minimal disruption in people flow, by capturing a high quality photo of every individual on-the-move, as the traveler naturally walks at normal pace, at any moment of their journey where an accurate identification must be guaranteed. While regular travelers will move seamlessly across travel hubs, such as airports, ports or land borders, US authorities can dedicate their full attention to managing exceptions and urgency situations.”
Earlier this week, Vision-Box released vb dashbox, a new application designed for airport authorities to manage real-time passenger data intelligence streams and ultimately provide a holistic airport passenger travel and behavioral information data center.
