Biometric and identity management consultancy Human Recognition Systems has provided Newcastle International Airport in the UK with MFlow – an automated exit lanes system designed to manage passenger flow.
The system monitors exit routes from the international and domestic baggage collection areas and is designed to enhance service, security and efficiency at the UK airport.
The MFlow system combines human behavioural analysis technology with ‘smart surveillance’ CCTV and system controlled doors to manage passenger flow and identify people moving in the wrong direction or standing still in the vicinity of exit lanes.
The technology also identifies and alerts security staff to unattended objects and objects being passed from landside to airside.
Jim Slevin, business development consultant at HRS, says: “We have been working with the aviation industry for the last five years to understand how biometrics and video analytics can improve security, streamline processes and enhance passenger experience whilst returning on the airport’s investment.”
