New biometrics technology increases safety and allow for quicker Canada—U.S. crossings. Iris ID in collaboration with IBM (NYSE:IBM) provides iris recognition technology to the Canada Border Services Agency’s NEXUS program.
The biometric technology will improve security and expedite border clearance processes between Canada and the U.S. Enrolled travelers can now clear customs by simply looking into a camera that uses the eye’s iris as proof of identity. Members benefit from expedited security screening lines in preclearance areas at dedicated immigration lanes at more than 100 participating U.S. airports.
