The Royal Schiphol Group is starting a collaboration with security technology company Pangiam to investigate ways of screening hand baggage more quickly and safely at Amsterdam Schiphol.
The new technology, powered by artificial intelligence, could eventually help enable travellers to go through security checks faster, without compromising on safety.
The aim of the collaboration is to explore how Pangiam’s new technology can improve and speed up hand baggage screening at Schiphol and other airports.
According to the airport, the technology uses artificial intelligence and algorithms to analyse images of hand baggage and identify prohibited items and other security risks. In the future, it says, the technology could support employees in this and speed up the process for travellers.
