DAY 1: Idemia presents its biometric check-in solution for smartphones
At Passenger Terminal Expo 2022, Idemia is presenting its biometric check-in solution for smartphones, Capture SDK.
Capture SDK enables passengers to check themselves in at home via a smartphone. To operate the solution, a traveler scans their passport or shares their Digital Travel Credential (DTC). They then take a live selfie to create a digital traveler identity. Idemia created Capture SDK to provide a contactless digital journey. At the airport, Idemia’s contactless biometric technologies identify travelers on the move, enabling a greater passenger throughput and a better user experience.
By capturing biometric and travel document data using mass market mobile devices (smartphones or tablets), Capture SDK enables the verification of the traveler’s identity, either remotely or on-site. It enables governments, airports and airlines to integrate biometric and document data capture capabilities in their own applications. This can be applied to various use cases, such as remote check-in or on-the-fly identity verification by a border guard.
The solution can facilitate multibiometric captures (face and fingerprint). It also features simultaneous, automatic four-fingerprint capture without any specific additional sensor and Presentation Attack Detection for faces and fingerprints (active or passive). Alongside this, Capture SDK is GDPR compliant and compatible with existing contact databases. To make the solution easier to operate, Idemia has endeavored to make Capture SDK customizable and has released online resources for developers.
“PTE is definitely the place to be,” said Nicolas Phan, market manager of passenger flow facilitation and border control at Idemia. “This is one of the major events in the travel industry where we can physically meet clients. It is a great opportunity to showcase our digital travel journey for passengers enabled by solutions such as the capture SDK, allowing a smooth travel experience from their couch to the boarding gate.”
