Hyderabad airport rolling out facial recognition for passenger check-in


Rajiv Gandhi International Airport in Hyderabad, India is installing a facial recognition system as part of the DigiYatra scheme, The New Indian Express reports.

Kiosks will be deployed at the airport and in the city to allow passengers to verify their facial biometrics for the DigiYatra ID paperless travel system. Passengers can input their travel details and personal details at the kiosk and have a 360-degree photograph taken, which will be accessible to officials at the security check and at departure and boarding gates.

Once the system accepts the picture and details, a unique QR Code will be generated that can store the details of the passenger permanently for future trips in and out of the city. Under the DigiYatra system, travelers share the ID when purchasing tickets, and use it to verify their identity when they depart. Aadhaar is not necessary to enroll, but using it as an enrolling ID makes the DigiYatra account valid for five years, rather than one.

The trial version of the facial recognition system has already been installed for the ground staff.
