Accurately knowing how many passengers are at a given point throughout an airport has been an immense technical task, so far, the industry has gotten to a guestimate accuracy level with potentially privacy intruding video content analysis systems and Bluetooth or WIFI tracking solutions.
This is all about to change, at this Passenger Terminal Expo, Point FWD is showcasing a solution that will revolutionize the way we look at people counting and measurement products.
Point FWD is introducing an Ultra-Wide Band radar sensor suite that is capable of detecting and measuring the presence of humans with an accuracy that has never been demonstrated before. These sensors measure the presence of passengers through highly advanced radar technology, measuring minute movement, with an accuracy that is capable of differentiating beating hearts.
The deployment areas within an airport for this privacy by design solution are endless. Consider queueing or flow measurements before check-in or security and in corridors or hallways, having a precise and reliable count of how many passengers are waiting or passing through. Smart and data-driven janitorial assistance: why clean a toilet if no-one has used it? Or perhaps you should clean it after 200 passengers used it in an hour.
Even security solutions are possible, the sensor is so accurate it can determine whether or not one or multiple heartbeats are in a predefined area, such as gate-houses, cargo elevators or personnel entry points.
Visit the Point FWD stand (1768) for an in-depth explanation and demonstration of the product, jaw-dropping moments are guaranteed.
