Riyadh Airports successfully trials facial recognition technology by SITA
Riyadh Airports Company (RAC) has made sure it has become one of the most progressive and environmentally friendly airport operators after successfully trialling Smart Path, a facial recognition technology by SITA.
The technology, which was tested at check-in counters and boarding gates recognises the passengers’ digital identity when stepping up to the camera.
The facial image is directly linked to the passengers’ physical passport and travel documents at check-in. This allows them to be identified at security or boarding by simply taking a picture.
