Accenture Technology to Help Airport Scan Faces and E-Verify Passports

AccentureLogoDublin Airport is testing an automated border control system that uses technology from Accenture and SITA designed to electronically verify passports, TechCentral.ie reported Monday.

According to the article, Accenture’s platform uses facial recognition technology to scan passports and validate passenger information.

The e-gate system at the airport’s Terminal One is open to passengers older than 18 during the trial period.

“Many major European airports are adopting a similar trend towards the deployment of automated gates for immigration control functions to enhance passengers’ experience on arrival at airports while also strengthening border security,” said Alan Shatter, Ireland’s minister for justice, equality and defense.

Officials expect the automated system to accelerate the entry clearance process for travelers and help intercept illegal entry into the country, according to the report.

Ger Daly, Accenture’s managing director for global public safety business, said the e-gates are intended to improve travel experience by reducing waiting times at the arrivals section during the busy summer months.
