Panasonic to demo One ID platform for full-airport biometrics at PTE 2019
Panasonic is demonstrating its One ID solution for fully automated curb-to-gate airport services powered by facial biometrics, which include check-in and immigration screening, robot assistants to provide directions to boarding gates, digital signage providing personalized flight information, and self-boarding gates, Passenger Terminal Today reports.
The system will be demonstrated for the first time March 26 to 28 at the Passenger Terminal Expo in London. By integrating facial recognition with automated check-in kiosks, where the traveler’s passport is scanned, as well as border control gates, service robots, digital signage, and boarding gates, Panasonic says it can deliver an intuitive user experience with faster processing. The company’s FacePRO security system can also track passengers to alert staff if they are lost and require assistance.
Panasonic also produced a video explaining how travelers will experience the process.
Panasonic Head of Business Industry Solutions Shusuke Aoki says the demonstration will show the potential time and resource savings of the technologies the company has available today.
“Elements of the solution, such as the automated check-in and security tracking solutions are already in use in major international airports in Asia and Europe, but this is the first time the company’s unique automated end-to-end One ID solution will be demonstrated to the public,” Aoki says. “We see this technology not only revolutionizing the way we travel but also bringing about efficiency to sectors such as entertainment and hospitality, with similar applications being used within theme parks, concert venues and sporting events.”
Biometric airport deployments are continuing at a rapid pace, with new facial recognition-based systems announced at Canadian airports, as well as Cleveland and Narita airports within the past week.
