Morphoface creates solution for airport security

Paris, France

Safran Identity & Security has unveiled its new solution for seamless face acquisition and on-the-spot identity verification at Passenger Terminal Expo. Dedicated to private and public organisations, Morphoface integrates the company’s state-of-the-art face recognition technologies, ensuring a high level of accuracy.

Morphoface particularly helps airports and border checkpoints deal with the increasing number of travellers by providing a fast and highly secure biometric solution for face capture and matching in one single connected device. Based on the latest 3D video analysis technology, this solution combines reliability and ergonomic to enable a steady and seamless flow of users.

The compact unit offers a completely non-intrusive experience for travellers. It features only fixed components and can more quickly capture a wide range of sizes and profiles than conventional solutions which must mechanically adjust before acquisition. In addition, Morphoface has anti-spoofing capabilities to deliver robust, convenient identity check (against an ID document) or person identification (against a list of persons of interest).

In a globalised world where airports and border checkpoints are vital hubs, Safran believes that ‘on the move' biometrics will play a key role in securing borders while reducing wait times and improving travel experience.

Samuel Fringant, Executive Vice President, Security Division at Safran Identity & Security explains: "Morphoface is an interoperable solution which can be integrated into existing environments (e-gates, self-bag drop systems, kiosks, etc.). It is available for customers as a turnkey solution or as an embeddable kit for third parties to design their own customised solutions."

Slow up take of biometrics in access market

Ever since the first fingerprint readers came to market more than a decade ago, access control industry stakeholders have eagerly anticipated the prospect of finally eliminating cards from their systems.  However, as of 2015, biometric reader sales accounted for just 30 percent of access control reader sales in the Americas. Meaning they ranked third, still behind both 125 kHz proximity and smart card readers in popularity. "Hardly the credential revolution that manufacturers were hoping for." says Jim Dearing, analyst at research company, IHS Markit.

Smart parking solution meets the challenge

In the last two decades, global economic growth has led to a tremendous increase in vehicles in almost every corner of the world. Reports have shown that in cities, most high rise apartment buildings have had difficulties managing their parking spaces. ID card issuing, billing, entrance control and payment made the entrance procedure very inefficient. Traditional smart card management systems limit the access to those who hold an allocated smart card. However, cards could be stolen and the processing of a lost card is inconvenient.

Sensit solves parking dilemma in Singapore

The Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange in Singapore played the role of regional bus interchange whilst the existing one was being rebuilt. The temporary station, featured with the latest technological solutions, required a smart bus parking solution for an efficient traffic flow due to these large amount of passengers. Nedap’s Sensit was installed to offer real-time occupancy information of all individual bus parking spaces at the station. This real-time information enables easy guidance of buses to the nearest available parking space. The implementation was realised by Eaglevision.
