AOptix Technologies and Human Recognition Systems (HRS) have deployed the AOptix InSight VM iris recognition system into 34 automated e-gates at Gatwick Airport's south terminal.

The InSight VM was integrated into MFlow Track and developed by HRS for positive passenger identification as part of Gatwick Airport's automated security process.

VM iris recognition system scans the passenger's iris and boarding card at the entrance and exit of the departure lounge, ensuring that the same person enters and leaves the airport.

The MFlow Journey uses face recognition to track passengers through the facility and allows the airport to measure the time that passengers spend in each area of the terminal.

The new technology was installed as part of a £45m upgrade at Gatwick.
