IDEMIA selected by Royal Caribbean Cruises

16/04/19

Idemia (IDEMIA) has announced the expansion of Royal Caribbean’s debarkation process using IDEMIA’s MFace high speed 3D face capture technology.

The firms said with the successful completion of trials at Cape Liberty, New Jersey, and the Port of Miami, the program is now moving into commercial production at these ports.

IDEMIA’s facial recognition technology has enabled the Royal Caribbean passenger debarkation process to be both more secure and efficient. The use of IDEMIA’s MFACE technology has played a key role in enhancing the passenger experience by completing the process significantly faster than the manual verification method previously used.

The MFace technology by IDEMIA streamlines the process by comparing the facial identities of individuals disembarking with the identities of ticketed passengers who boarded the ship at the start of a cruise, matching against images in the U.S. Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) Traveler Verification Service (TVS). No images are stored by Royal Caribbean, CBP or IDEMIA after the trip is completed to ensure that passenger privacy is maintained.
