End User Integration Working Group survey

This survey is created by the ABC4EU project partner Laurea University of Applied Sciences. It's purpose is to gather more information on the future use, expectations and opinions from the potential stakeholders within the project.

The survey is conducted in accordance with the EU regulation 2016/679 on the protection of natural persons regarding the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data.

Personal data is not collected as explained on Chapter 1, Article 4 of the 2016/679 regulation. Neither will the responders be identified, in any direct or indirect way.

The research findings will be analyzed within the project consortium and will contribute towards understanding the impact of the ABC gates as a main border check mechanism, including identifiable benefits and/or drawbacks of the technology used in the border crossing process.

Here you can find a video that depicts the way ABC4EU - project will change the traditional border crossing process by harmonizing and simplifying the functionalities:

In your opinion, how do you think these features and attributes mentioned above will benefit the workflow of the passengers crossing through land borders?

PHASE 3

Phase 3 is related to the future questions and use of ABC gates.

What would be the best way to promote/ increase the frequent use of the ABC gates?

Please drag and drop features to the blank boxes according to how you think they should be ranked:
 1 - the best way - and 6 the least best way
