Dubai to test ObjectTech-developed biometric border control system – BiometricUpdate

June 11, 2017 – UK-based ObjectTech has signed an agreement with Dubai’s Immigration and Visas Department (GDRFA) to test its ‘gate-less’ border technology, which combines biometric verification and blockchain technology.

Once launched, the pilot program will allow passengers travelling to Dubai to walk straight from the plane to baggage reclaim via a short tunnel in which a facial recognition system will conduct a three dimensional scan of the passenger’s face to instantly verify their identity against a digital passport.

ObjectTech was selected in January to participate in the Dubai government’s ‘Dubai Future Accelerator’ program, and has since been working with GDRFA to apply their technology to the country’s main international airport.
