LinkedIn +

Panasonic now has more than 200 automated facial recognition gates in place across Japanese airports. Their installation is intended to speed up and improve the passenger journey and ties in with Japan’s bid to become a ‘tourist nation’, increasing the number of foreign visitors to 40 million per year by 2020 and 60 million by 2030.

Features include: a new passport reader that accepts passports in any orientation; an ergonomic, all-in-one compact design; a high-performance facial recognition engine and fraud detection function; and the ability to detect unauthorized entry such as tailgating.
