Vision-Box has entered a contract with the Australian government to deliver automated ‘contactless’ traveler clearance processes for people arriving in Australia by air at all international airports.
The three-year contract will deliver the next generation of Automated Border Control passenger-processing technology, assisting the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection to collect and verify biometric data from all passengers.
It will also deliver a new capability that will enable known travelers to self-process through the border without the need to physically use a passport, relying entirely on facial recognition technology.
Miguel Leitmann, CEO and co-founder of Vision-Box, said, “This contract represents an unparalleled milestone in the history of automation at the border, since it is the first time a government will implement biometric identification through contactless services.
“We are permanently investing in R&D to bring innovation at the service of more secure and frictionless border control solutions.
“By selecting Vision-Box, the Australian government once again puts its trust in us, to build their leading ambition, which is an amazing recognition to our commitment to society in this respect.
“I am very proud of what our people have achieved for our customer and how they feel being part of something bigger and making the world a better place.”
