The 2021 Biometric Technology Rally will demonstrate the ability of biometric systems to reliably acquire and match images of diverse individuals, including those wearing face masks. The intent is to reduce the risk for both the public and frontline security checkpoint personnel by eliminating the need for travelers to remove face masks for biometric identification. Both acquisition systems and matching algorithms will be evaluated as part of the Rally. Data collected from acquisition systems during scenario testing will be used to assess the performance and interoperability with matching algorithms. The 2021 Rally will, for the first time, report on the ability of commercial biometric systems to work reliably for across demographic groups.
