Materna IPS deploys Biometric Face Recognition at Tokyo Haneda Airport

Tokyo International Airport (HANEDA), the 4th largest airport in the world, chose the German SBD provider to equip their self-service installation with the Materna IPS One ID journey.

Via 1:1 verification the passenger’s scanned government issued ID picture gets matched with the image captured at the kiosk.

The result can enroll into the airports Face Express system at the self bag drop making it a unique cooperation of both systems.

That way Tokyo Haneda Airport ensures a streamlined passenger processing while improving airport efficiency and security.

By offering passengers to identify themselves at the self-service touchpoint, physical contact with airport staff and therefore the risk of infection will be minimized.

Yuya Yamazaki, Technical Project Manager of TIAT, said: “On behalf of TIAT including management level, we would like to express our sincere appreciation to Materna IPS to release this program before Tokyo 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games, which is one of our goals of this project.”
