Maximizing border guards’ operational efficiency
The EU Entry/Exit System (EU-EES) has been implemented to improve border management and increase security, by collecting and registering biometric data of Third Country Nationals. The quality and reliability of biometric data are therefore key factors in the success of the EU-EES.
TravelTotem is IDEMIA’s new biometric device for fast and accurate face capture at air, land, and sea borders. It operates in full compliance with EU-EES regulation and the Schengen Borders code. Hygienic and contactless, this state-of-the-art facial capture device is easy to deploy, whether as a standing unit or attached to a manual counter. Featuring an ultra-thin design, without the use of a fan, it offers high visibility to border guards and improves their efficiency in performing daily tasks.
TravelTotem is both reliable and convenient, making it suitable for a wide range of traveler profiles (1.2 m to 2.1 m). It guides travelers during face capture, speeding up the border clearance process at manual immigration counters with no compromise on image quality.
TravelTotem allows frontal, illuminated and tight-framed facial image capture at eye level, with embedded quality control.
TravelTotem is user-centric, fast, ergonomic and non-intrusive as well as compatible with various traveler profiles.
TravelTotem enables a fully automatic process with easy installation on existing counters. It is an important piece in an end-to-end border security system.
