Hyderabad Airport (RGIA) Kick-starts Face Recognition Trials for Passengers

 5 years ago    

A GHIAL spokesperson said, In line with the Govt. of India’s signature DigiYatra program, GMR Hyderabad International Airport has extended its ongoing trials of Face Recognition to passengers starting from 1st to 31st July 2019. The airport has set up dedicated Face Recognition Registration Counters near the Domestic Departure Gates No. 1 and 3. The registration is available from 8 am to 8 pm for passengers who would like a new digital experience and is completely voluntary.

GMR Face Recognition

On the first day (1st July), over 180 passengers enrolled voluntarily for DigiYatra trials at Hyderabad Airport. For Face Recognition enrollment, one can visit any of the Face Recognition Registration Counters at the airport with a valid Govt. ID, contact details and get his / her the face captured by the camera. Once this is done, a CISF personnel physically checks the applicant’s Govt. ID proof and post successful verification, a unique DigiYatra/ Face Recognition ID for the passenger are generated.

An exclusive e-gate is available at the Departure Gate No. 3, where the enrolled passenger can get his/her boarding card scanned, face the Face Recognition Camera, which matches and verifies the credentials along with the itinerary details.Upon successful verification, the passenger gets checked-in and the e-gate opens – all done in split seconds. Since, this is a trial phase, CISF personnel will still physically verify the travel docs and ID details of Face Recognition -registered passenger at the departure gate.

The checked-in Face Recognition enrolled passenger can then proceed to a dedicated Face Recognition channel for a security check (created at the Express Security Check near Gate No.3), where the Face Recognition Camera verifies the credentials followed by mandatory frisking by CISF personnel. After, CISF approval, the passenger heads for boarding.
