iBorderCtrl participated in the 5th edition of the EAB Research Projects Conference that took place on the 24th and 25th of September 2018, at the premises of Fraunhofer IGD in Darmstadt, Germany. iBorderCtrl demonstrated in the conference part of its outcomes and allowed attendees (potential travellers) to test –for the first time being public- the Traveller User Application and provide their feedback on the user experience and the avatar interview (as part of the Validation process).
The Traveller User Application first public demonstration is of great importance as the EAB conference is currently the largest event on research funded by the European Union in the area of Biometrics and Identity Management. In the conference numerous EU-funded research projects participated, such as: BODEGA, LIGHTest, IDENTITY, SWAN, AMBER, SMILE, PROTECT, LETSCROWD, TRESSPASS, CybSPEED, FOLDOUT, FACCESS, Smart-Trust and QuardCard. The conference fostered discussion among participants and included a round-table where all the above communities of practice put forward their ideas and needs, presented the challenges faced in their daily work and proposed solutions.
