OpticWash is showcasing its automated kiosk dedicated to cleaning and sanitising eyewear. Offering the perfect solution to some of the world’s most commonly used (and germ-infested) items, OpticWash uses cutting-edge tech to deliver a fast, affordable, and convenient way to clean and remove bacteria build-up while leaving surfaces scratch free. OpticWash has solved a problem that no one has been able to solve until now – how to clean your glasses without scratching them or touching the lenses, and we do it without chemicals. So how does it work? RO (Reverse Osmosis) water is filtered to the point where it has no minerals or organics. It actually loses its PH balance and attacks and absorbs the dirt. Once the RO water touches the item, it changes the appearance almost immediately. The OpticWash kiosk uses ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) as a disinfection method that uses ultraviolet (UV) light at sufficiently short wavelength to kill microorganisms. It is effective in destroying the nucleic acids in these organisms so that their DNA is disrupted by the UV radiation, leaving them unable to perform vital cellular functions. Using the UVGI device in the filtration system creates a deadly effect on micro-organisms such as pathogens, viruses and moulds that are in these environments. Coupled with a comprehensive filtration system, the UVGI removes harmful micro-organisms providing the client with a 99.9% bacteria-free wash.Register to attend FTE Global 2022 today >>

Rohde & Schwarz
Recently, Rohde & Schwarz announced that its QPS 201 people scanning technology has achieved the TSA qualified products list (QPL) making it possible for air carriers and airports innovating their passenger experience to purchase and deploy the new screening solution. The QPS 201 is fast, accurate and makes air travel more accessible than legacy screening technology (this is the first new AIT system to make the TSA list in 10 years) with a friendlier screening pose (hands slightly apart from hips rather than over head); screening 5x the speed of the blink of an eye which reduces false alarms (and the invasive secondary pat downs) that are often the result of movement during screening. This is also gender-neutral screening, designed and engineered so that its algorithms don’t need gender information to accurately screen. Amid staffing shortages coupled with “revenge travel” leading to pre-pandemic travel volumes, technology that enables faster throughput (as many as 100 passengers per hour more than legacy technology) while making travel easier for passengers may be an important addition to any airports security lanes.
