Perth Airport’s relationship with Xovis continues to go from strength to strength as the airport was recently awarded the SITA Innovation Award at the Australian Airport Association Industry Awards in recognition of their adoption of the technology.
Following a successful trial of Xovis PTS System in Terminal 3 Domestic (T3) security screening Perth Airport has expanded the program to include the International Terminal (T1). According to Rowan Chalmers, Perth Airport’s Executive General Manager Operations & Customer Experience the implementation of Xovis has been a great success. “We are pleased with the roll out of the program and the data capture we are getting from Xovis. The data really empowers the dialogue between us and other airport stakeholders such as airlines and contractors,” Mr Chalmers said. “The system has great potential to improve the experience of our customers by providing them with useful information on queue wait times. We also envisage using it in a predictive nature in the future to assist with trend analysis, resource allocation and queue management,” he said. The collaboration with Perth Airport is also a special occasion for Xovis. Perth is the first Australian Airport to roll out the Xovis System. David Studer CEO is excited about the collaboration: “We are pleased to roll out our system down under, especially with a project that has been awarded the SITA award for outstanding technical innovation.”
Xovis is a Swiss high-tech company that develops as well as commercializes systems and sensors for people counting and tracking and similar applications. The Xovis Passenger Tracking System (Xovis PTS) enables airports to reach new levels of Passenger Flow Management in terms of measurement as well as analysis. Besides normal Passenger Counting and tracking, Xovis PTS also precisely measures process and waiting times in queuing areas, queue fill levels and in and outflow as well as counts of open lines and desks escalators for example.
