New biometric robots could be the future of airport immigration, scanning passports and passenger’s boarding passes as well as recording their face and iris. The invention was revealed at the Paris Air Show and is an innovation which is already making its way into some airports. There are also plans to incorporate 300 behavioral warning signals into some forms of the robot, although it is unclear how these will function in practice.
With immigration laws becoming more stringent under current government regulations, some have concerns about how safe the robots will be in preventing unsolicited entrance into the UK. However, the developers have reassured people that they have been implemented with great success in many places with no fuss or serious controversy. People seeking to relocate or move country are curious to know whether this will affect their ability to migrate.
