Reston, Va., August 3rd, 2021 – IDEMIA, the global leader in augmented identity, announced today that the company ranked second for passenger identification in the latest testing by the National Institute of Standards (NIST), confirming that IDEMIA’s facial recognition technology and algorithms are among the most accurate, fair and consistent in market.
The test focuses on ‘Identification for Paperless Travel and Immigration’ and is part of the ongoing Facial Recognition Vendor Test (FRVT) managed by NIST. The exercise simulated departing flights, populating galleries with photos of 420 arriving travelers at the airport, then measuring accuracy by running searches of photos at departure. IDEMIA’s technology conducted 536 simulated aircraft boardings, without experiencing a single false negative, which translates to a secure and frictionless boarding experience for passengers.
In addition to its outstanding performance in the passenger simulation, IDEMIA has maintained the top spot on NIST’s FRVT ranking since first published in late March 2021, reinforcing the trust and reliability of its facial recognition solutions at both a government and consumer level.
