FRANKFURT'S BIOMETRIC PROJECT : A BIOMETRIC PILOT PROJECT FOR 15,000 PEOPLE IS UNDERGOING SUCCESSFUL TRIALS AT FRANKFURT MAIN

This article describes a biometric frequent flyer pilot project known as the Automated Border Guard (ABG) system which is taking place at Frankfurt Main Airport in Germany. The project is examining the feasibility of letting 15,000 frequent flyer participants use only their unique biometric identity to pass through border and immigration controls. Biometric recognition processes use iris, face, and fingerprint recognition methods. The project at Frankfurt Main is testing not only the accuracy of iris recognition technology but its efficiency in airport applications.
