The 2020 Biometric Technology Rally creates a new technical challenge for industry: reliably identifying small, free-flowing groups of individuals in crowded environments, like airports or ports of entry. This event will consist of an initial individual processing phase, as well as an advanced group-processing phase. Technology providers will have to demonstrate strong performance in the individual processing phase to qualify for the group-processing phase. As in 2019, data collected during scenario testing will be used to assess the performance and interoperability of matching algorithms.
Application package requirements are detailed in the 2020 Rally Overview Slides. More information to be provided in the technical webinar on 04/07/2020. To RSVP to the technical webinar, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
