Facial Recognition at Airport Customs in Japan
In this regard, we will have new technology for use in the customs inspection area at Japan's busiest international airport. Secondly, demonstration tests of this electronic customs gate are scheduled to begin at Narita International Airport Terminal 3 from April 2019. In short, we will have a face recognition device like what we can see below.
Therefore, this will be the first time that face recognition technology has been used for customs procedures at an airport in Japan. It will also be one of the first implementations for this purpose worldwide.
How will this porch with facial recognition work?
The electronic procedural gantry will be installed in the customs inspection area. This is where passengers go after being admitted through immigration. Travelers' identities will be confirmed at a kiosk (electronic declaration terminal).
In the meantime they will also be confirmed at an exit gate equipped with NEC face recognition technology. According to this company, their equipment has the best recognition accuracy in the world.
In addition, an application for smartphone will facilitate electronic baggage declaration. In this sense allowing travelers to record luggage content and passport information.
These methods are expected to reduce passenger stress. In short, relieving congestion and reducing waiting time in the customs inspection area.
The facial image taken on the electronic procedure port is for identification purposes only and is properly disposed of after use.
"NEC regards its security business and the 'NEC Safer Cities' campaign as the key to expanding and improving its global business, "said Ryouji Hayashi, NEC Senior Vice President. " As a result, NEC has already provided biometric identification systems, including face recognition, to approximately 50 airports worldwide. In short, we look forward to leveraging this experience and know-how to further contribute to the security of social infrastructure worldwide.. "
