The main aim of constructing a smart airport is to make systems and processes digitally equipped and organized, regarding process efficiency and connectivity. Further, this helps the systems to pervade with intelligence and improve accessibility. Hamad International Airport (HIA) signed a contract with Huawei to speed up the Qatar airport’s digital transformation. The major focuses of this strategic partnership are expected to be on the Internet of Things (IoT), and autonomous machines, to address business opportunities and challenges. Moreover, this partnership will enable the development of the smart airport and upgrade the passenger management, further fulfilling the needs of digital-savvy customers. Thereby, these technological service providers are involved in serving ICT solutions, to accelerate the digital transformation in airports and their operations. This adaptation of IoT in airports is expected drive the market of the smart airport at a CAGR of 5.82% during forecast period.
Technological innovations, such as smart robots, are set to boost the productivity scenario at airports. Changi airport is testing its smart robots for airport use. A smart wheelchair system, guided by vision-based technology is on trial at the airport. Other futuristic technologies include Roboto, a prototype robotic chef, which can prepare ‘laksa’ for passengers at the Sats Premier Lounges. In the first quarter of 2017, Changi Airport was involved in the testing of smart vehicles that work on ‘Follow-Me’ technology to transport food trolleys within the premises. ]
Also, new concepts of smart glass for blind passengers are being planned, with trials already underway at the Seattle airport. The port of Seattle, as of 2018, announced a new pilot programme, which helps the blind or visually impaired people to access new assistive ethnology, to safely use the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. The airport authority has also further announced that they would cover the cost of travelers using the Aira smart glasses to navigate the airport.
Based on the terminal side, the market is segmented into baggage handling, check-in systems, and other operations. With increasing, air passenger traffic along with the introduction of the advanced baggage handling system is the major reasons for the domination of the baggage handling segment during the forecast period.
