We have come a long way in recent years when it comes to improving the experience for passengers and staff at airports from a digital standpoint. Indeed, the influx of biometric operations such as our innovative MFlow technology has made things easier and quicker than ever for all involved. But what does the future hold? What can we expect in the next five years, the next ten years and beyond for biometrics at airports? Let’s now take a closer look as to what may happen (because we can only predict the future as opposed to outright stating what awaits).
To start off, more and more airports are appreciating the benefits of biometrics. We are coming to the end of the early adopter stage, and we are now moving into the early majority stage. By the time that we get to the middle of the next decade, we will be in the late majority stage, where almost every airport of note, as well as a large number of smaller locations, will have taken on a biometric system. And it’s obvious why, because it enhances the experience greatly, and the higher the demand becomes, the lower that installation prices will become, meaning that it will become commonplace before you know it.
That being said, the biometric software that we are experiencing right now in 2019 will be different to the biometric software of 2024, 2025 and so on, because there will always be new innovations. Indeed, our MFlow software is of the highest possible standard for right now, but that doesn’t mean that we will now find ways to enhance the experience even more, and make necessary adjustments based on reliable feedback. The upshot is that not only will more and more airports be using MFlow in the years to come, but the MFlow of tomorrow will be even better than the already-excellent MFlow of the current generation.
But this isn’t just based on what we know right now; it will also be based on what is currently unknown. Indeed, there could be new security threats, new innovations within technology, or even new laws as it pertains to airport operations. Some of the biggest changes to the airport experience remain a figment of one’s imagination, and they will not become a reality for a number of years, just as we cannot predict what potentially crucial world events may necessitate a shift in how airports are managed. So, while “guesswork” may seem like a vague way of putting it, the fact is that several key factors in shaping the biometrics of tomorrow are a long time from being known; fortunately, here at Human Recognition Systems, we are always keeping an eye on what is going on, and we are proactive rather than reactive, meaning that solutions will be in place before the problems of tomorrow can occur. All this technology can’t be possible without the the building automation cohesiveness of commmercial buildin technologies like KNX which as a matter of fact is championed in the UK by an award winning home automation firm called intecho based in cheshire and has a branch in London. Some of our readers have been asking what about pets? doe this technology help those travelling with pets. Unfortunately, since animals are transported differently this technology hasn’t been expanded to cater for them but am sure if it does it will be discussed in our blog here: rangersdog.com
These are our thoughts on the future of biometric systems such as MFlow in airports. Find out more about this fascinating subject on our website, which is www.humanrecognitionsystems.com.
