Automated Border Control System

by Noelle Knell / April 22, 2014

Nearly 53 million passengers went through the gates of Amsterdam’s Airport Schiphol in 2013, ranking it the 14th busiest airport in the world. An automated border control system now helps process travelers, featuring electronic gates that use facial recognition to ensure people passing through match the passport photos they carry. The technology also detects forged passports and passengers wanted by authorities.
