Oslo Airport in Norway has deployed IDEMIA’s facial capture solution MorphoFace for its new automated border control gates in a bid to improve its passenger experience.

The new facial recognition solution is backed by IDEMIA’s MorphoWAY solution.

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

The new system will replace a legacy infrastructure with the latest technology on the market and expands automated border control to departures at Oslo Airport.

IDEMIA’s technology captures the face as people move, without using any moving parts or additional lighting. With its small form factor, MorphoFace delivers a clear view of all gates, enhancing both passenger experience and overall security.

“Many existing automated border control infrastructures in Europe are now almost 10 years old and need a new and fresh approach.”

The customised project was executed in cooperation with Avinor, Norway Police and local partner Seca Solutions, part of Dormakaba Group.

IDEMIA citizen identity and public security activities executive vice-president Philippe Barreau said: “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.”

Besides an arrival and departure process, the new installation offers a remote monitoring solution for the Norwegian Police, with Avinor as the official contract partner, to manage alerts during a passenger crossing and interfaces to systems to support the immigration and emigration border processes.
