Seamless Gateway: What it is and why everyone will want it!
Providing an on-the-move, contactless, and streamlined passenger journey, Seamless Gateway eliminates stops at airport control points and represents the next evolutionary step both in the way passengers interact with the airport and in stakeholder collaboration.
Advancing the concept of the non-stop and contactless airport passenger journey, Vision-Box in collaboration with Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, is presenting its newest industry game-changer, the Seamless Gateway, during Passenger Terminal Expo taking place this week in Amsterdam.
Already causing a ripple of excitement throughout the airline industry, the Seamless Gateway technology is the first-ever, contactless, face biometrics passenger identification gateway. Offering the highest security levels at key moments of the passenger journey, it is certain to change the way airports envisage their relationship with passengers by revamping the interaction between travelers, airport, airlines and border authorities in important ways:
- Provides travelers with a walkthrough identification experience, eliminating stops and direct interaction with officers. Identification is conducted in a few seconds, without compromising the biometric capture quality or matching accuracy of the single token.
- Features a full, contactless journey obtaining a facial image on the fly, while the passenger walks naturally, but without eliminating the travel document from the equation.
- Enables a streamlined, one-solution approach to all touchpoints, with the Seamless Gateway technology available to all travelers, adapting itself to each passenger’s unique behavior and features, and automatically activating alternative identification methods if needed.
- A seamless journey providing a smooth and continuously integrated passenger-centric flow, combining data from different systems to deliver the highest level of security and a modern travel experience to travelers. The powerful Common Use IoT platform, Orchestra, promotes stakeholder collaboration and activates actionable intelligence towards excellence in Airport Management.
How does Seamless Gateway work?
During each clearance process, a facial image of each approaching passenger is captured on-the-move, and matched against a traveler data envelope which includes the biometric and biographic details of the expected arriving passenger.
As a safe and proven technology for Automated Border Control, the system employs the highest security standards and operates according to international regulations and best practices, under a rigorous Privacy-by-Design architecture.
CEO of Vision-Box Miguel Leitmann highlights that “We are thrilled to be at Passenger Terminal Expo along with Schiphol Airport, our long-time and valued partners in seamless passenger modernization. This year, we are proud to unveil Seamless Gateway, a brand new concept that literally allows a passenger to go through checkpoints without stopping and heralds a revolution in the dynamic between passenger, airport, airlines and border authorities. This innovation truly is a stimulating new chapter for the passenger services model and stakeholder collaboration.”
While the Seamless Gateway links the passenger with the airport, airline and border control authorities, via a simple, transparent and on-the-move interaction, the state-of-the-art Vision-Box IoT Service Platform Orchestra integrates the entire passenger identification and Common Use flow infrastructure of solutions and processes, leveraging all traveler and journey information into actionable intelligence. Orchestra unlocks a unique collaborative management ecosystem for all stakeholders, promoting synergies, maximizing advantageous interactions and offering a personalized, first-rate passenger experience within the Digital Airport Program.
Wilma van Dijk, Safety, Security & Environment Director of Schiphol Group, also states “Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has been boosting innovation in every aspect that concerns passenger experience together with our partners the Ministry of Security & Justice, Royal Netherlands Marechaussee, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Vision-Box. Now, to be the first airport in the world to offer a completely non-stop contactless journey and to demonstrate such innovation at Passenger Terminal Expo are great reasons to celebrate. For us, modernization goes hand in hand with innovative technology. The state-of-the-art Seamless Gateway supports us with our Digital Airport Program.”
Adding to the outstanding experience offered by this seamless approach is Vision-Box Mobile ID technology that uses highly secure biometric tokens for seamlessly, hands-free authentication in authorized IoT devices. The Vision-Box Mobile ID can be used to digitally store multiple identification documents in a smartphone to easily and securely network to numerous services while connecting various agencies and authorities. Using a network of IoT devices, each individual transaction is stored and distributed using Trustchain, Vision-Box’s cutting-edge approach to blockchain, which allows authorized IoT devices to perform risk assessments and estimate the level of confidence in the individual’s personal identity, based on the sequence of ID verifications in the person’s IoT history.
Visit Vision-Box Stand 10035 at the Amsterdam Passenger Terminal Expo for the unveiling of Seamless Gateway, the first-ever contactless face biometrics identification gateway. Distinguished guests and a large team of Vision-Box ambassadors are available for meetings and for a full, live demonstration of the new solution.
Come experience this revolutionary non-stop, contactless and streamlined passenger clearance gateway and see how it will change the face of air travel as we know it!
