     Title: New testing session for the ADDPRIV consortium in Milan Linate airport

The consortium partners are further testing the privacy sensitive technology of ADDPRIV in order to increase its stability in real environment

The week of February 15th to 19th, the technical partners of the ADDPRIV project consortium met in Milan Linate Airport in order to perform e new and comprehensive testing session for the developed technology.

With the cooperation of the security personnel of SEA, the consortium member tested for 4 complete days the ADDPRIV technology in the real and complex scenario of the Milan Linate Departure Area, in order to achieve valuable feedback on the technical performances and final users acceptance of the technology.

An overall good feedback has been received by the final users, who consider that the technology will definitely enhance airport security activities paying specific attention to citizens privacy rights.

The results obtained will be further studied by the project consortium in order to continue fine tuning the technology and enter in the industrialization phase of the project.

ADDPRIV addresses the challenge of determining through an automatic, accurate and reliable manner, which information obtained from a distributed system of surveillance cameras is relevant from the security perspective and which is not, and can be safely deleted, reducing unnecessary data storage and protecting citizens’ privacy rights. ADDPRIV fulfil with the European Legislation in terms of Privacy Protection and with the principles of personal data recollection minimization, improving the social acceptability of video-surveillance technologies.

The project, led by Anova IT Consulting (ES), will last 36 months with a total cost of €4 Millions. The partners involved are: Kingston University (UK), Politechnika Gdanska (PL), Goldsmith College (UK), Avanzit Tecnología (ES), Hewlett Packard Italiana (IT), SEA Aeroporti di Milano (IT), Renfe Operadora (ES) and Trinity College Dublin (IE).
