Today’s air travel is marred by long lines, time-consuming security checks, and constant stress. Travelers are queued up at the check-in counter, at the self-service kiosk, when they drop off their bags, when they navigate the TSA screening lines and when they board the plane.
However, these necessary security checks waste precious passenger time and impact an airport’s bottom lines. With NEC’s Advanced Recognition Systems, a simple scan of your face becomes a single, unified biometric key that unlocks an enjoyable experience that is:
o Safe & Secure
o Seamless & Frictionless
o Engaging & Personalized
In the infographic below you can find more information regarding facial recognition technology in airports that allows for an elevated passenger experience.
The need for greater security in crowded, public places is changing the way businesses are engaging with customers. That’s true whether it’s an airport, stadium, cruise line or a border security check. At these, and many other high-traffic sites, the goals are the same – quickly and accurately verify the customer’s identity and provide the necessary service.
As with many of NEC’s solutions, NeoFace® Express has patented technology that allows for the capture of the best facial image for processing while providing these additional unique features and values:
Efficiency – measuring the time spent interacting with the station
Satisfaction – measuring how satisfied the user is after use of the station
Acquisition Rate – measuring the success of image acquisition; and
Accuracy – measuring the true identification rates
NeoFace Express is a key component of NEC’s single, unified biometrics key solution that provides a secure, frictionless and personalized customer experience. With a simple scan of the face, a unified key is created that allows consumers to enjoy fast, easy access to areas such as; airport lounges, theme park attractions and sporting events, while business and government agencies benefit by improving operating efficiencies and heightened security.
