FOCUS AREA: automated document fraud detection, biometrics on the move, mobile biometric devices, benchmark datasets, recommendations for biometric solutions

D4FLY focuses on enhancing the quality and efficiency of identity verification at all border crossings on the land, air and sea, by providing faster and more secure border control solutions. It augments the current capabilities and capacities of border authorities in countering emerging threats in document and identity verification at highly automated border control points. The confluence of D4FLY set of tools and systems will improve the quality of verification and enable real, on-the-move border crossing experience for travellers. The D4FLY solution will consist of a border control kiosk geared with enhanced enrolment, verification and detection capabilities, smartphone applications and a non-stop on the move system for biometric verification. Four different border control points and one document fraud expertise centre will form the project’s testing and demonstration ground.

Research topics:

  • biometric technologies for identifying people on-the-move through 3D face, iris and somatotype recognition
  • smartphone applications for enhanced traveller verification
  • thermal and multispectral imaging for counter spoofing
  • advanced morphed face detection algorithms through Convolutional Neural Networks
  • deep Neural Networks for impostor and document fraud detection
  • computer vision algorithms for automated passport forgery detection

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 833704
