Advanced technology in significant airports have been implemented, and the results are excellent. Airport procedures are hectic, and one gets tired by the time they are through and have boarded their flight. Technology has positively changed airports’ processes ranging from bookings checking and disbursement of cargo they are conducted. These innovations will change how passengers relate with airport staff and reduce the number of flight delays contributed by slow and lengthy procedures. The innovations are to improve services and ensure that all passengers are satisfied.
This technology can detect both physical and non-transferable behavior in people. The technology has been infused in personal devices, security control boarding gates, and check-ins. The biometrics confirms passenger information and their documentation without showing them. It has improved check-in since people no longer have to wait in a long queue to show their documents, which is time-consuming. The biometrics have been designed to manage different steps with a single process: registration at the airport, boarding gate, and security control.
Airports are using drone technology for different reasons on their grounds. Some are placed within the airport’s perimeters for surveillance, ensuring that all areas are covered and secure. Similarly, they have been used to test work associated with maintenance and inspection duty that has to be conducted before taking off. Comparing drones to ancient processes, they are fast and reliable to run many inspections within a short time. The use of drones in airports is likely to speed daily operations and increase flights taking off. They can position all the drones in strategic areas in the airports’ environs and surroundings to improve their security.
Remote control towers
With remote control towers technology, airports can enhance their security operations and control air traffic operations effectively. The remote tower is not strategically located in a given location; hence one can operate from different locations within the airport. It guarantees security to the airport and passengers as well. Several control towers can control heavy air traffic to maintain a safe landing and taking off.
The use of augmented reality (AR) glasses by the cargo crew will make work easy. With AR glasses, the crew can quickly scan QR codes on the luggage and record its details such as weight, a designated area in the plane, and the loading order. With installed cameras, the control center operators can image what the crew is seeing. This tech increases the speed of checking in luggage, thus a short boarding time. The catering loaders will also have a short time to load meals, which prevents flight delays.
Sentiment analysis tool
This tool can analyze what passengers are saying and show the emotion behind it. The metis can categorize elements of comments into different sections such as food, beverage, etc. metis can identify whether a comment is negative, neutral, or positive. With this data, airports can point out areas of improvement and address them. It helps to know if the travelers are satisfied and happy.
