Oslo Airport looks to improve its passenger experience by deploying the IDEMIA MorphoFace facial capture solution for its new Automated Border Control gates.

European first

Following the successful launch of the product at Changi Terminal 4 and integration into Customs Gates in New Zealand, this is IDEMIA’s first deployment of MorphoFace in Europe.

The new system, driven by IDEMIA’s MorphoWAY solution, was launched in time for the summer peak and replaces an older infrastructure and expands automated border control to Departures at Oslo Airport.

IDEMIA’s technology captures the face on the move, using no moving parts or additional lighting. Its small form factor allows MorphoFace to provide an unobstructed view over all gates, enhancing both passenger experience and overall security.

The tailor-made project was executed in close cooperation with Avinor, Norway Police, and local partner Seca Solutions AS, part of the Dormakaba Group.

Fresh approach

In addition to an arrival and departure process, this deployment provides a remote monitoring solution for the Norwegian Police – with Avinor as the official contract partner – to handle alerts during a passenger crossing, and interfaces to systems (national, European and International) to support border processes.

“Many existing Automated Border Control infrastructures in Europe are now almost 10 years old and need a new and fresh approach. Our solution allows Oslo Airport to reinvent its passenger experience. We thank Oslo Airport for choosing IDEMIA for this improvement and look forward to further developing and inspiring future innovations,” said Philippe BARREAU, Executive Vice-President of Citizen Identity and Public Security activities at IDEMIA.
