These examples of biometric convenience range from robot-run luxury hotels to connected police drones that utilize facial recognition as a means to capture criminals -- while aiming to reduce occurrences of wrongfully accused individuals in custody.

When looking at biometric innovations that are making consumers' travel experiences more enjoyable, standouts include passport-free airline boarding along with hassle-free baggage checks. While British Airways' recently introduced a face-scanning identification system for easy boarding, American airline Delta's baggage check kiosks also rely on facial recognition to decrease wait times, while increasing efficiency.
