GMR Group selects IDEMIA for DigiYatra face recognition tech | India News

NEW DELHI: French technology provider IDEMIA has been selected for implementing facial recognition technology for DigiYatra service by airport operator GMR Group for Delhi International Airport, Hyderabad and Goa.

”We are glad to partner with IDEMIA’s Passenger Flow Facilitation solution, which will enable and speed up passenger clearance and increase security with embedded anti-spoofing capabilities with the least manual intervention,” GMR CEO Videh Kumar Jaipuriar said.
IDEMIA has deployed biometric and digital technologies at over 250 airports across the globe including at Singapore’s Changi Airport.
”We are thrilled to collaborate and partner with GMR Group for DigiYatra, yet another exemplary digitalization initiative of the Government of India. As a market leader for passenger flow facilitation solutions, we strive to constantly innovate to safeguard passenger trust and help pave the way for even smoother and more secure future travel,” IDEMIA India Regional President, Matthew Foxton said.
IDEMIA is also a technology partner in the government’s JandhanYojna and Aadhaar programme where verification is centric to the implementation of the project.
The company said that it worked alongside DIAL in solution development and delivery of a live proof of concept for about last one-and-a-half years.
”Under this contract, DigiYatra will use IDEMIA’s facial recognition technology at Delhi, Hyderabad, and Goa to verify the identity of domestic flyers, making terminal entry and security clearance at the airport a seamless, hassle-free, and paperless process,” IDEMIA said.
