United to Partner With TSA for Automated Security Lanes

DENVER, CO - JUNE 16: The TSA security lines in the main terminal are crowded with vacation travelers on June 16, 2013, in Denver, Colorado. Located 25 miles from downtown, Denver International Airport is the largest airport in the United States. (Photo by George Rose/Getty Images)

In order to expedite the screening process for passengers passing through security at busy airports, United Airlines has announced plans to team up with the Transportation Security Administration and introduce automated security screening lanes to several of its busiest hub airports, starting with Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) in fall of this year. O’Hare International Airport (ORD) and LAX are also set to receive the modernized checkpoints. Up to five travelers at a time will be able to place their belongings in bins to be screened, and faster travelers will not be slowed down by passengers with more belongings as they move on to metal detectors and full-body scanners.

Likely RFID chips on the trays, so it'll automatically move it along the track similar to that of the innovation lanes. Allowing you to have your own space as the pax next to you just realizes he needs to take his liquids out

Quite curious what this looks like and how faster people can bypass the slower ones.
