Schiphol NeXt -the IT Innovation team of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol- had a vivid dream: Walking hands down through a Self Service Boarding Pass Check gate (SSBPC). The main idea was to discard all the hassle and burden regarding the multiple checks and gates passengers encounter in our terminal. The brightest partners in our ecosystem –Glimworm, Scarabee, Emansion and Schiphol Telematics- have actualized that dream by stacking beacon and facial recognition technologies, and software adjustments to the SSBPC. On behalf of Schiphol NeXt Bernd Kegel took on the challenge and combined all the technologies with a user friendly test app to scan Passport information with NFC and retrieve the Boarding Pass from email. From an innovation process perspective as well as the outcome this prototype was a huge success. Although this prototype cannot be put into production right away more stakeholders of IT and business alike will get acquainted with the concept and technology behind this prototype in upcoming months.
