Customs Agent To Be Replaced By Lie Detecting Robots

Avatar Lie Detecting Robot

You next customs agent could be a lie detecting robot. The bot from homeland security would be located inside of a Kiosk (Similar to the ones used to check in).

'Avatar' would ask travelers questions and use eye detection software and sensors to determine if a traveler is lying. The machine's capabilities are based on behavior changes during questioning.

'Avatar' would start off by asking travelers simple questions to see if they are just anxious. it could monitor language, facial expression, pupil dilation, and tone of voice. if a lie is detected, passengers can be taken aside for further screening. The robot is currently being tested by U.S. and Canadian authorities.
