Smart traffic technology deployed at Dubai Airport

Dubai International Airport in the UAE has become the world’s first airport to implement a new Intelligent Traffic System (ITS), which optimizes the coordination of buses used to shuttle passengers from the departure gates in Terminal 2 (T2) to the aircraft.

The new system improves efficiency by ensuring buses are fully utilized, increasing the average number of passengers per bus trip from 40 to more than 60. This reduces the number of bus trips by 20% which in turn limits the use of fuel and production of carbon emissions. The system also helps alleviate congestion during peak operations.

Bryan Thompson, senior vice president – development, at Dubai Airports, the airport operator, said, “It is another world first for Dubai International. It is the first time this technology has been implemented and used in this manner. The system is fail-safe, and provides a fully automated solution to coordinate bus scheduling which in turn reduces wait times for departing passengers.

“Such initiatives are proof that technology can be applied to many parts of our business to improve the passenger experience, boost efficiency and help us augment capacity.”
