SMILE Action proposes a novel concept of mobility that addresses the challenges at the European land borders, by designing, implementing, and evaluating in a relevant environment (TRL6) a prototype management architecture for accurate verification, automated control, monitoring and optimisation of people flows. It will take advantage of the capabilities of smart mobile devices in border control for secure and reliable authentication and processes their exploitation as a part of a biometric multimodal verification process that augments/complements existing approaches. The idea of SMILE mobility is based on private cloud infrastructure technologies that will communicate with remote handhelds through a secure gateway. The SMILE Action will target the land borders, so the proposed technological and operational framework will be tested through demonstrations at two Border Crossing Points.
XP-DITE is a research project which brings together 13 organisations across Europe to develop, and demonstrate a comprehensive, passenger-centred, outcome-focused, system-level approach to the design and evaluation of airport security checkpoints.
iBorderCtrl (Intelligent Portable Control System) is an innovative project that aims to enable faster and thorough border control for third country nationals crossing the land borders of EU Member States (MS), with technologies that adopt the future development of the Schengen Border Management.
FLYSEC is an ambitious research and innovation project that aims to develop and demonstrate an innovative, integrated, end-to-end airport security process for passengers, airports and airlines.
