Ikusi, a provider of airport IT and communication systems, has announced that it will be presenting its Spider Pax Flow solution at Passenger Terminal Expo 2016, taking place in Cologne, Germany, on March 15-17.
Spider Pax Flow allows operators to monitor and track passengers on their journey through the airport. This information can then be used to indicate areas of high passenger demand and can measure the capacity of the airport in real time. Operators can then anticipate bottlenecks and detect potential problems early on, and take proactive steps to prevent them from happening. These indicators are obtained by integrating various data sources and systems, which Spider Pax Flow then converts into knowledge to support managers in their decision-making.
The Passenger Demand Forecasting module, part of the Spider Pax Flow solution, uses algorithms based on complex neural networks and combines this with historical data from a range of airport sources (AODB, passenger tracking) to deduce passenger demand. This allows stakeholders to plan their resources and personnel needs in advance thus optimizing operating costs and maximizing their productivity.
Ikusi’s Passenger Journey module tracks passengers’ movements in real time, from the car park to the departure gate. Using COTS (commercial of the self) CCTV cameras, the Passenger Journey module is able to anonymously and passively detect and track passengers using facial vectors. Through this innovative technology the airport operators will be able to detect patterns on the passenger flows and get transit times from one sub process to the next one.
