Fill Level at Airports
Airports face an unprecedented international crisis in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. Most of the global aviation industry is currently grounded, which is most vividly visible at airports around the globe as terminals remain empty. However, what happens when air traffic gradually picks up again? While policies regulating the details of a safe re-opening are almost exclusively decided at the national level and vary around the world, physical distancing will be the mainstay of interrupting the spread of COVID-19. Knowing how many people are in a confined space to comply with government regulations is unavoidable. These spaces not only include terminal areas but also lounges, shops, and restaurants.
The Xovis 3D Stereovision sensors can capture guests with unparalleled accuracy and in most cases a single sensor placed at the entrance/exit of a confined space can already deliver the needed data. Facility operators can enforce capacity filling levels and capture compliance for reporting purposes automatically. This use case is already live in many retail stores around the world. In order to accommodate different regulations, the variable of maximum people can be adjusted accordingly. Other functionalities include:
- Real-time measures following live situational awareness (e.g. stopping the inflow of people if capacity limit reached)
- Added benefit visitor statistics
The Xovis Passenger Tracking System (PTS) is one system for all purposes. Its accurate real-time data is the foundation to accommodate fast growth without having to add new facilities. Airports and passengers benefit in many ways:
- Comprehensive passenger flow management based on measured data and facts
- Balanced use of infrastructure, which can help avoid costly investments
- High service level - a key determinant for passenger satisfaction
- A database for the collaboration with any required stakeholder
- Reliable data to enhance passenger flow simulation models considerable
