Ayala, H., Yange, W., Enriquez, C., & Tamayo, H. (2023). New technologies for border control and security. Minerva, 4(10), 9-19.


This document describes the advances and new technologies developed for border security control and military use. A systematic review was conducted, considering scientific articles on technological advances from which information was obtained on new techniques, applications, algorithms, surveillance devices, and biometric systems that use artificial intelligence and machine learning to support border security and control of persons, weapons, products, and objects that are not allowed under the current regulations of nations. Technological advances worldwide enable the continuous development of new alternatives to counter the new and improved fraudulent techniques for illegal border crossing of people and objects.
