At the end of June, Frontex participated in the final demonstration of the D4FLY project, a research and innovation project funded by the EU Horizon 2020 programme. It focuses on enhancing the quality and efficiency of identity verification at border crossings by providing faster and more secure border control solutions.
The demonstration day aimed to give an overview of the techniques developed in the D4FLY project for the improvement of border crossing and the verification processes.
D4FLY has been exploring, developing, and validating new technologies to augment the current capabilities and capacities of border authorities in countering emerging threats in document and identity verification (e.g., forged documents, impostor fraud, morphed faces) at manual and highly automated border crossing points at land, air, and sea.
were tested during two scenarios: one in an automated border post and
the other, in a coach where border guards were verifying identities in a
crowded confined space.
