SMARTGATE

Location: Sydney, Australia
Reporter: Dr Caroline West

Synopsis:
With more and more people traveling to Australia each year and security paramount, customs officers at Australian airports will need all the help they can get checking those entering the country. A system that could help identify travelers would be a great help and the Smartgate is just that. The system compares your passport photo with digital images taken by three cameras, noting such things as your bone structure, length of your nose, and the distance between your eyes. No longer will you have a customs officer staring at you to check if you look the same as your passport.
