ADP Showcases the E-Ports Project at the Biometrics Conference in London
ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates - Saturday, November 2nd 2013 [ME NewsWire]

As part of its participation in the Biometrics Exhibition and Conference recently held in London, United Kingdom, the Abu Dhabi Police presented its E-Gates Project experience.  This embodies the Abu Dhabi Police General Headquarters’ strategy aimed at developing the best technologies to combat crime and boost the community’s security and safety.

Colonel Barakat Yaaqoub Al Kindy, Chief of the Systems Development Section at the ICT Department, chairman of the committee, submitted a work sheet, which focused on the E-Ports  project currently implemented in the UAE. It is  a pioneering project for identification of individuals using three biometrics, IRIS, Face and Fingerprints to facilitate the entry and exit of passengers through the country’s various ports, thus enhancing the State’s prominent position in providing distinguished  services to all sectors, and upgrading the security and stability process.

During the conference’s inaugural session, Colonel Al Kindy reviewed the UAE’s efforts in boosting ports security by leveraging the latest cutting-edge technologies to identify passengers. He also noted that the UAE is among the first countries in the world to approve and adopt new technologies, whereas the Ministry of Interior has been implementing the iris recognition scan system across border points since 2003, which significantly contributed in preventing re-entry of deportees.

In his work paper, Al Kindy highlighted the benefits of this distinguished project, which combines three biometrics (iris recognition, fingerprints and face recognition) and smart interactive e-gates.  He also noted that the entry and exit systems at the country’s ports were linked with automatic reading systems for various travel documents, including identity cards of UAE and GCC nationals. This measure e has increased the system’s accuracy and contributed to accelerating the identification and verification processes.

Furthermore, Al Kindy gave an overview of the E-Ports Project registration process, provided free-of-charge to all travelers, which allows simple and easy-to-use entry and exit through e-gates installed in the country’s airports. "The project allows the speedy processing of passengers’ travel procedures within just 15 seconds, and streamlines travelers' flow and identification through immigration and borders control,” he continued.

The presentation was highly acclaimed by the attendees who expressed their admiration for the pioneering idea that reflects the MoI’s high level of development by keeping abreast of technological developments in various areas, as well as its keenness  to streamline travelers’  flow and identification.
