Secure and Wireless Multimodal Biometric Scanning Device for Passenger Verification Targeting Land and Sea Border Control

Project description

New device for secure EU borders

The EU’s border-free Schengen Area guarantees free movement to more than 400 million EU citizens as well as to many non-EU nationals, businessmen, tourists or other persons legally present on EU territory. Since no checks are carried out at the borders between Schengen states, the EU improves security through more efficient external border controls, while facilitating access for those having a legitimate interest to enter EU territory. The EU-funded eBORDER project is a response to EU directives for border checks using biometric data in conjunction with Visa Information Systems (VIS), as specified in the Schengen Border Code. It will develop a secure and wireless multimodal biometric scanning device for passenger verification targeting land and sea border control applications.
