Face recognition passport check at Oslo airport

New Passenger Record Set in Oslo Gardermon Airport (The Nordic Page)

The system was introduced initially as a trial with two machines that are placed on arrival for passengers coming from countries outside the Schengen area.

The technology is based on face recognition and has a two-stage operation. After passing the first gate, traveler’s face is scanned to compare with the picture on the passport. After the image match is completed, the next door is opened and the border control finishes. The process takes about 15 seconds.
