Lufthansa Group Innovator Award

A huge success for MODI Vision and Materna IPS at the coveted Lufthansa Group Innovator Award 2019.

In the category “Dare to try!” the innovative biometric self bag drop solution won an award. MODI Vision & Materna IPS worked in cooperation with Lufthansa and the US authorities on the automated biometric ID control. In the Lufthansa pilot project, the manual ID controls at the self-service baggage kiosks will be replaced by an automated biometric ID control in order to improve customer satisfaction and increase passenger throughput.

The Lufthansa Group Innovator Award is presented every year to the best innovation projects and is an indicator of future-oriented technologies. More than 10,000 Lufthansa employees took part in the vote to determine the winners of the 150 submitted projects. All members of the management also voted as the “Top Jury”. Six categories received the coveted “Lufthansa Group Innovator Award”, including the “Biometric Identification” in the “Dare to try” category.

We are very happy to be part of this project and to thank everyone involved for the good cooperation.
