Travelers answers while facing any of the issues with a webcam so that it will let the system to analyze and rate the dozens of micro-gestures. When the iBorderCtrl determines the traveler who is being truthful, they will receive a QR code that will surely let them pass the border with ease.

If the AI suspects that the traveler is lying, then they will be going to under biometric information and will be passed on to a human agent who will then go to their review their application and make an amended decision.
