Zhangmutou Train Station now operates facial recognition for ticket checking. It officially starts from the New Year’s holiday. Folks need to stand on a certain area and look directly at the camera after scanning their ID card/passport. Only three to five seconds is needed for the progress. According to its efficiency, it’s believed to better serve the upcoming Spring Festival passenger peak.
There are four facial recognition machines at the entry and six at the exit. Interestingly, Zhangmutou Train Station is the first and only station using facial recognition so far.
