Biometric technologies to manage migration at borders and airports
In 2008, MCIA UPC collaborated in the development of a biometric technology application to manage immigration at borders and airports. The app provides the validation and scientific and technical recommendations required so that a computer can interpret complex situations, beyond classic supervision of CCTV, such as a situation of general panic or recognize someone who loses consciousness. This application was developed as part of the Integra project, led by Telvent.
