Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX)
Introduction
Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX) is the biggest airport in the world and the second international airport of Beijing. The airport’s design is pioneering while its location on Daxing District (the southern suburbs of Beijing) is ideal in order to serve the Chinese capital and the neighboring areas of Hebei and Tianjin. The new mega-airport hub is expected to handle up to 45 million passengers per year by 2021 and reach an outstanding 100 million in the future.
Challenges
  • In September 2019, Beijing Daxing International Airport (PKX) opened the doors to the world’s largest airport terminal building featuring 58 sets of SenseTime’s Smart Passenger Security Check System. The system supports all the key security procedures for both departure and arrival halls at the iconic starfish-designed Phoenix Terminal.
Result
The system streamlines the passenger identity verification process to create a hassle-free travel experience and set new standards in airport service levels. The SenseTime Smart Passenger Security Check System automatically verifies all passengers for eligible identity documents and their required flight tickets before departure. The system is also used at the luggage security check area. It matches passengers to their own luggage directly through real-time facial and video analytics which helps to minimize mistaken collection of luggage. The system significantly cuts down the time for security checks which gives travelers the smoothest stress-free travel experience possible. The new advanced security systems boast a success rate of over 99.9% for passenger identification and verification accuracy, while the accuracy of the Person-ID (referring to the verification of passenger itself to his/her identity document) matching reaches 100%. The rate of complete single-passenger inspections has improved from 180 persons per hour to about 260 persons per hour, and the rate of baggage inspection has now reached 792 pieces per hour. This has overall efficiency and safety level of security inspection greatly improved, which help passengers save a lot of waiting time on inspection. SenseTime’s advanced artificial intelligence technologies are the foundation of multiple innovations and new applications. The Smart Passenger Security Check System is one such innovation that utilizes AI to provide travelers with a smarter, speedier, more convenient and secure experience.
