TRB Webinar: Implementing Biometric Technologies at Airports

Biometrics is one of the most powerful, but misunderstood technologies used at airports today. The ability to increase the speed of individual processes, as well as offer a touch-free experience throughout an entire journey is a revolution that is decades in the making. TRB will host a webinar on Thursday, June 30, 2022 from 1:30 – 3:00 PM Eastern that will explore biometrics’ use in airport. Presenters will discuss how biometrics work; examine recent trends in adoption; introduce legal, policy, and privacy considerations related to their adoption and use; and outline some potential benefits to implementing biometric technology systems at airports. 

The webinar features research from ACRP Research Report 233: Airport Biometrics: A Primer.

This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, you must sign into to register.

A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
