Thales Reinforces its Border & Travel Offer With the New Multimodal Biometric Pod
Thales, a worldwide expert in border and travel management, launches a new multimodal biometric solution that simplifies authorities’ processes and user experiences at borders.
Integrating iris and face recognition, this innovative Pod offers a multimodal biometric capture and authentication solution, to both enroll and verify travelers ID.
Used as standalone or integrated into self-service solutions, Thales’ highly accurate and efficient biometric pod perfectly fits borders authorities’ environments and contributes to reducing processing time.
Featuring a camera and a high-resolution LCD screen, the biometric pod is able to recognise pre-enrolled travelers’ iris and face at a distance of 0.5m and up to 1.5m with excellent accuracy. Boosted by AI, the solution captures dual iris and face in two seconds, leading to swifter operations and visibly shorter wait times . Thales biometric pods can be set at any borders checkpoint (airports, seaports, etc.) managing both the first traveler enrolment upon arrival and quick biometric checks whenever required (upon territory exit, internal flights etc).
“The combination of biometric patterns applied to contactless authentication, is a sought-after solution for many stakeholders to address security, operational and convenience challenges. Thales relies on its in-house biometrics, border and smart travel expertise to design, develop and deliver top tier responsible biometric solutions to meet users’ expectations and authorities’ requirements”, said Youzec Kurp, VP Identity and Biometric Solutions at Thales.
