Based on multi-modal biometric identification, the new Primary Inspection Kiosk (PIK) system at Toronto Pearson International Airport will increase capacity and help reduce passenger wait times.
Vision-Box™, the worldwide leader in Automated Border Clearance and passenger-centric experience, has been awarded by the Greater Toronto Airports Authority (GTAA) a contract to modernize the border clearance self-service solution at Toronto Pearson International Airport. The new system will consist of 130 PIK kiosks that will greet arriving passengers with a streamlined, automated and self-service process.
Highlighting the cutting-edge innovation of the new PIK solution is the ability to simultaneously capture facial and iris images of passengers and match them with the information contained in the traveler’s e-passport or registered traveler databases. Designed and built in compliance with ICAO recommendations, Vision-Box’s Primary Inspection Kiosks feature automated height adjustment combined with other user-centric features to comfortably accommodate the maximum number of eligible travellers and to ensure excellence in quality of biometric capture of iris, face and fingerprint images as per ISO and NIST standards. The fully digital-ready process will further eliminate the burdensome need to fill out paper customs declaration forms while the comprehensive backend kiosk management system will allow operators to monitor the entire deployment to maximize kiosk utilization.
