Travelling without a ticket

Make a boarding in having your hands in your pockets
.

 


 

Julian enters into the airport and stops in front of an information panel. The information panel shows the way to reach the luggage dropping point and the boarding gate. Julian drops his luggage, passes the custom and the security gates finally makes the boarding to the plane.

At no point in time, Julian gave a boading pass, his passport and even his name to anyone.

How does this work?

By simply staying in front of the information panel, Julian starts the eGo pairing between the eGo compliant device (the information panel) and the eGo device (e.g. his watch). The intrabody signal flows from the carpet under the Julian's shows up to eGo. The eGo pairing done, the information panel and eGo have a logical channel of communication on which they can exchange data. For instance, the information panel may access to the travel information into the eGo.

By staying in front of the luggage dropping point, Julian starts the eGo pairing between the eGo compliant device (the carpet) and the eGo device (e.g. his watch). The intrabody signal flows from the carpet under the Julian's shows up to eGo. The eGo pairing done, the airport information system and eGo have a logical channel of communication on which they can exchange data. For instance, the airport information system stores the luggage information (number and weight) and their digital certificate in case of Julian's claims.

By walking in the security hall, Julian starts the eGo pairing between the eGo compliant device (the carpet) and the eGo device (e.g. his watch). The intrabody signal flows from the carpet under the Julian's shows up to eGo. The eGo pairing done, the airport information system and eGo have a logical channel of communication on which they can exchange data. For instance, the airport information system will check the Julian's identity in retreiving the ICAO information from eGo and will check automatically the Julian's face (automatic face recognition). Other biometric checking can be operated during this step.

In walking in the hall to access the planel, Julian starts the eGo pairing between the eGo compliant device (the carpet) and the eGo device (e.g. his watch). The intrabody signal flows from the carpet under the Julian's shows up to eGo. The eGo pairing done, the airport information system and eGo have a logical channel of communication on which they can exchange data. For instance, the airport information system will check the Julian's identity in retreiving the ICAO information from eGo and will check automatically the Julian's face (automatic face recognition). A display may show the certified face to an airport employee at the plane gate in order to complete the checking and inform the passager about his seat number.
