Anicet Mbida gives us every morning what is best in innovation. This Thursday, he is interested in the new much more efficient scanners that are currently being tested in airports.

Today's innovation should streamline controls at airports. We will soon no longer need to take computers and liquids out of our carry-on baggage.

This will save a lot of time! Because there is always one who forgets something in his bag, so who slows everyone down. Sometimes we find ourselves spreading all our things out in two, three or four bins... and let them go. I don't know about you, but I'm always afraid of getting stung something.

Fortunately, all this is soon over. New, much better scanners are currently being tested at airports. This is already the case in Lyon St-Exupéry, Paris Orly. And it will start at Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle. With these new scanners, it will be possible to detect the slightest trace of explosive, whether in liquids or in the batteries of devices. Even when they are buried at the bottom of the bag.

They have already proven their effectiveness in the United States, England and the Netherlands. If you go to London or Amsterdam airport today, there is no longer a limit of 100 ml with liquids. We no longer have to take them out or present them in a small plastic bag.

And in France? When will it be?

Since testing started late, it will likely be for 2024. This is also the date that has just been chosen for the main Spanish airports. This means that next year most European capitals will be equipped with these new scanners. This should greatly speed up controls.

There are also security gates? Here too, you have to empty your pockets and queue.

Yes, that's right. You will always have to take off your belt and put your phone down.

But a new type of gantry is also being studied. It will keep everything on you. And will automatically notify officers as soon as he spots a weapon, even if it's a ceramic knife or plastic gun.

This technology has also proven its worth at the entrance of shops, stadiums and concert halls. Places where it is difficult to spend five minutes searching each person.

So good news. Everyone knows that with these endless queues, security checks have become hell. It was time to find solutions.
