With the TSA planning to purchase approximately 100 shoe scanners next year, technology companies are aiming to prove their product deserves a place in U.S. airports. Morpho Detection, for instance, says its shoe scanners can process more than 300 passengers per hour. The claim is based on a trial at Indianapolis International Airport last month involving some 3,000 volunteers who used the machines in the airport lobby. Morpho says it will fine-tune its machines using data from the experiment in hopes of winning the TSA contract expected next year.
