Introduction of airport display systems such as FIDS and passenger infotainment systems

It is now clear that, with the introduction of airport display systems such as FIDS and passenger infotainment systems, reduction in the operational expenses of airports has become possible. The adoption of these systems reduces the manpower required at airports, decreasing the need to maintain many human resources. A number of versatile technologies are being developed that promote interactivity.

Here is why Airports are increasingly embracing technological solutions

Steadily, one can observe that, airports are increasingly embracing technological solutions to achieve operational efficiency and associated cost reduction. As a result, the authorities are investing in new technologies such as geolocation, near-field communications, iBeacons, 3D face recognition, video analytics, and thermal sensors. Operational systems form the key leading segment of global airport IT spending.

Global Aviation Cargo Management Systems Market 2017-2021

The most exciting is to observe that,the analysts forecast the global aviation cargo management systems market can at a CAGR of 12.44% during the period 2017-2021. Cargo management system is implemented in aviation cargo operations for optimizing the efficiency and effectiveness of commercial freight operations. Integration of such systems helps in automating processes and thereby, improving cargo stakeholders' communication and productivity. Adoption of such solutions also reduces a load of data entry, as well as eliminates errors in the process. One trend in the market is increasing adoption of RFID technologies. In recent years, there has been considerable interest in deploying RFID technologies to support supply chain management of cargo-related activities. Such technology helps operators in establishing integrated tracking and visibility framework at cargo terminals. Research and Markets revealed that, one driver in the Global Aviation Cargo Management Systems Market is initi…

ZigBee technology, for low-energy wireless technology

ZigBee is a wireless communication technology that offers advantages such as efficient power management and ease of installation to consumers. ZigBee is the major substitute for high-power-consuming batteries and can connect several devices. ZigBee wireless network counters disadvantages regarding the manufacturing, distribution, and disposal of batteries. According to Technavio Research, top vendors include: Belkin International Cree OSRAM.

ZigBee technology alongside the growing Internet of Things (IoT) market

Steadily, one can observe that, the rapidly growing IoT market across the globe is encouraging organizations from different industries to join the ZigBee alliance that offers various global wireless standards. The ZigBee alliance aids member companies to develop products that are compatible with ZigBee certified products such as ZigBee lighting. For those who are unfamiliar, compared with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, ZigBee has a lower energy consumption rate and longer communication range. Major lighting manufacturers are integrating ZigBee technology into their smart bulbs as ZigBee and ZigBee Pro consume 1/10,000th of the energy required for a Wi-Fi network.
