Ikusi to present Fulmar, its unique passenger monitoring and tracking solution, at ACI-NA 2019

The solution combines facial recognition technology, crowd analytics and WiFi tracking for more accurate tracking and a lower deployment cost.

Fulmar, the new solution developed by Ikusi to allow airport managers to monitor and track passengers in real-time, will be unveiled and on display at ACI North America in Tampa, Florida from September 15 to 17. This new solution allows airport operations to know the status of critical points such as check-in, security filters and immigration at any given time. Come visit us at booth 1240 to see a live demonstration of its capabilities and learn about the benefits of Fulmar.

Ikusi has combined facial recognition technology, crowd analytics and WiFi tracking to offer airports a unique solution for passenger monitoring and tracking that will mean greater accuracy and a lower deployment cost.

The facial recognition algorithm, developed by Ikusi, provides excellent performance even in the most challenging situations. The crowd analysis technology offers a real-time, deep-learning model for busy environments. Furthermore, Fulmar connects to the existing WiFi infrastructure and tracks passengers during their transit through the airport. This technology, together with facial recognition and crowd analytics, allows passenger flow to be monitored in areas without sensors.

Some of the benefits offered by this solution, which is marketed under the name of Fulmar, include the application of facial biometric technology supported by cameras in the market, a reduction in the number of sensors installed and the possibility to predict passenger demand through the inclusion of historical data in the analysis.

Fulmar, driving non-aeronautical revenue

Fulmar’s monitoring and tracking capacity can also be applied for the optimisation of the airport’s commercial activities.

The combination of Fulmar and the Drangonfly solution, also developed by Ikusi, which captures sales in real time by using a wide range of integration methods, drives commercial revenue generation by correctly aligning the interests and needs of passengers/buyers, concessionaires and the airport operator itself.
