David Oliver, a transport security expert at PA Consulting, is quoted in Passenger Terminal World's article on the new walk-through security technology for the aviation industry.
There are regulatory concerns in the sector as aviation regulators tend to be risk-averse, David explains this is why new technology takes a while to appear on the market.
''There's a parallel with autonomous vehicles, another new technology that will be introduced into a highly regulated environment. They have to be certain of reliability, which makes it challenging to introduce any new technology at speed. There will be rival systems and it will take time to get them all approved.''
