A DAY IN THE BUSY LIFE OF A TRAVELER IN 2020
At 5:30 a morning, her smartphone alarm drags Elise from a deep sleep, and into another busy day. The device unlocks when she looks at it with eyes barely open. At a shake of her head, the phone goes to ‘snooze.’ Two snooze cycles later, Elise stumbles to the kitchen where the coffee maker lights up with recognition to brew her favorite coffee. The radio, following suit, tunes to her favorite news program.
Grabbing her briefcase, Elise heads out the door and into her car, where recognition software adjusts the driver’s seat position, switches on the radio and adjusts the volume.
After a quick visit to the gym, she heads to work. A kiosk recognizes Elise and opens the gate with no fob or key card. Just like the gym earlier, another camera at the entrance identifies Elise and opens the door. Once inside, she takes an elevator that automatically whisks her to her seventh floor office which unlocks at her approach.
At lunch, she moves rapidly through the automated cafeteria checkout. Food and beverages are scanned, and Elise uses facial payment to pay the tab with just a glance. Soon after, she’s on her way to the airport for a flight that will take her to meet clients in Tokyo the next day.
THE EYES HAVE IT – CREATING AN EASY & PERSONALIZED AIRPORT EXPERIENCE
Today’s airports have become a painful experience for travelers. In 2020, that’s no longer the case. Once at the airport, Elise checks-in at the kiosk that identifies her through a face scan. Besides checking her in and giving her flight information, the kiosk also ensures Elise is not on a security watch list. She moves to the bag drop site, where another scan matches her bag with her ticket. Next, thanks to face recognition, she easily passes through the security checkpoint, what years earlier had been the most frustrating step in a system of ‘chokepoints.’
Now entering the main terminal, a nearby kiosk recognizes her and displays personalized gate and boarding information. Elise smiles, knowing she has time to relax, grab dinner and shop before the long flight.
