Beijing: Beijing subway will use facial recognition technology to classify passengers to help guards take different security check measures, according to a top official of the city’s rail traffic control.

Zhan Minghui, director of Beijing Rail Traffic Control Centre, delivered a keynote speech on Beijing subway’s response measures on large passenger flow at a forum on urban rail transit operation and development held in Beijing yesterday.

Zhan, in his speech, said that while Beijing subway faces large passenger flow in the rail transit network every day, it has placed huge pressure on security check.

To improve efficiency, the director said Beijing subway needs to promote the use of multi-channel security check machines and facial recognition technology.

Through setting up standards, the facial recognition system will judge and classify passengers first into groups and inform guards to use relative measures, Zhan said. — China Daily/ANN
