Panasonic will demonstrate an automated airport passenger terminal, powered by facial recognition technology, for the first time in London next week.

Visitors to Passenger Terminal Expo at ExCel London, on March 26, 27 and 28, will be introduced to Panasonic’s vision of the ‘One ID’ solution, which enables passengers to check-in, pass through immigration, receive directions to the boarding gate from a robot assistant, check personalized flight details using digital signage, and self-board at the gate, without manual ID verification.

The One ID platform is designed to enhance passenger throughput and customer satisfaction by decreasing waiting times, while drastically improving airport operational efficiency. Demonstrating the company’s market-leading security systems, facial recognition technology and artificial intelligence applications, Panasonic will provide visitors with hands-on access to the company’s unique version of the solution for the first time.

Visitors to the Panasonic stand will first be able to use the automated check-in counter, which uses facial recognition and an intuitive user experience designed to speed up processing. They will then be able to experience the smooth and speedy operation of the facial recognition gates at border control. As they pass through the airport, the facial recognition capabilities of Panasonic’s One ID solution are integrated in to customer service robots and digital signage that directs passengers to their gate and provides personalized flight information.

In addition, automated personal mobility units can be activated via facial recognition and used by passengers requiring assisted transport to their boarding gate. Panasonic’s FacePRO security system can also track the whereabouts of passengers on their way to the boarding gate, enabling airport staff to quickly locate passengers who may be lost or delayed within the terminal.

“Visitors to the Expo will be able to experience the airport journeys of the future and see just how much time and resource can be saved by using technology solutions already available today,” said Shusuke Aoki, head of business and industry solutions at Panasonic.

“Elements of the solution, such as the automated check-in and security tracking solutions are already in use in major international airports in Asia and Europe, but this is the first time the company’s unique automated end-to-end One ID solution will be demonstrated to the public.

“We see this technology not only revolutionizing the way we travel but also bringing about efficiency to sectors such as entertainment and hospitality, with similar applications being used within theme parks, concert venues and sporting events.”
