Automated Passenger Movement Is The Future
According to Gulf News, Vision-Box, which previously helped set up smart gates and biometric systems at Dubai International Airport is helping in automating passenger movement. This means that there will be no check-ins or security checks or no barriers or doors. You simply have to walk to the departure gate of the airport. The automated movement of passengers will not only reduce the time taken to board the aircraft but also help in timely departures and arrivals.

Dubai Airport Will Use Selfie-Based identification Tool
In 2020, Emirates Airlines had rolled out a facial recognition tool to allow passengers to check-in and complete all formalities by simply strolling through the airport. As reported by Gulf News, Vision-Box is working with Emirates to further enhance the check-in experience. This precisely means that you just have to click a selfie at home before you head to the airport. With the selfie-based identity verification, you will be able to register ahead of your flight just by uploading your image.
