Survey for disabled passengers on automated border control use in Europe

Post by pinja.lehtonen » 4 years ago

Dear Disabilities-R-Us forum members,

Do you travel by air in Europe? We would like to ask you some questions about self-service e-gates at border control.

Many airports have introduced automated e-passport gates that use biometrics (usually a facial scan) to identify passengers. These e-passport gates are a self-service alternative to the conventional border control process where a border guard checks the passports of passengers. Not many of these e-gates are currently accessible to people with disabilities or reduced mobility. We would like to know how you feel about this.

The survey (in English) takes about 5 minutes to complete online at https://fastpass.iosb.fraunhofer.de/sur ... 47/lang-en

As an alternative, upon your request, we will send you a Word-format version of the study which you can email back to us.

The goal of the survey is to gain information for the European Commission funded FastPass project (https://www.fastpass-project.eu/). FastPass is currently developing the e-gates and processes to be harmonized in the European Union.

Kind regards and many thanks in advance!

Pinja and Anne-Marie

Dear forum users,

I would like to remind you there is still time to take the survey and impact the design of automated border control gates for disabled passengers in Europe. The survey will be online until the end of August.  It takes about 5 minutes to complete online at https://fastpass.iosb.fraunhofer.de/sur ... 47/lang-en

Thankful for your insight,

Pinja Lehtonen
