Last few years have witnessed an ever-increasing demand of border crossing, whose processing introduces the need to speed-up the clearance process at the Border Crossing Points (BCP). Automated Border Control (ABC) gates, or shortly e-Gates, can verify the identity of the travelers crossing the borders by exploiting their biometric traits, without the need of a constant human intervention. Biometric technologies have a relevant impact on the improvement of efficiency, effectiveness and security of the checking processes. Automated biometric recognition can increase the border processing throughput of the BCP, as well as facilitate the clearance procedures. To grant the passage of the border, the e-Gate compares the biometric samples of the traveler stored into the electronic document with live acquisitions. This paper presents the latest substantial advances in the design of e-Gates. In particular, it presents the Biometric Verification System in detail, including its hardware and software components, as well as the procedures followed during the biometric verification of the traveler's identity. We address the complex issue of measuring the performance of an ABC system, considering the real applicability of the figures of merit usually adopted in biometric system's evaluation. To complete the view of the current e-Gates, we highlight the main challenges and the research trends relating to the biometric systems currently used in e-Gates.

Abstract

Last few years have witnessed an ever-increasing demand of border crossing, whose processing introduces the need to speed-up the clearance process at the Border Crossing Points (BCP). Automated Border Control (ABC) gates, or shortly e-Gates, can verify the identity of the travelers crossing the borders by exploiting their biometric traits, without the need of a constant human intervention. Biometric technologies have a relevant impact on the improvement of efficiency, effectiveness and security of the checking processes. Automated biometric recognition can increase the border processing throughput of the BCP, as well as facilitate the clearance procedures. To grant the passage of the border, the e-Gate compares the biometric samples of the traveler stored into the electronic document with live acquisitions. This paper presents the latest substantial advances in the design of e-Gates. In particular, it presents the Biometric Verification System in detail, including its hardware and software components, as well as the procedures followed during the biometric verification of the traveler's identity. We address the complex issue of measuring the performance of an ABC system, considering the real applicability of the figures of merit usually adopted in biometric system's evaluation. To complete the view of the current e-Gates, we highlight the main challenges and the research trends relating to the biometric systems currently used in e-Gates.
