Real-time operations and predictive maintenance of HVAC, and electrical, based on crowd flow and flight data
Real-time flight data and passenger forecasts to optimize aircraft turnaround times and idle time. Collaboration with airlines for continuous improvement and efficient operations.
Energy Efficiency: Monitor HVAC systems in real-time to ensure they are operating efficiently. Energy usage data can be analyzed to identify patterns and optimize HVAC settings based on flight schedules.
Occupancy Sensing: Use occupancy sensors and real-time HVAC data to adjust ventilation and cooling in specific areas based on passenger density, ensuring energy is not wasted in unoccupied areas.
Maintenance Predictions: Implement predictive maintenance by analyzing HVAC data. By detecting anomalies and patterns, maintenance teams can perform preventive actions before major issues occur, reducing downtime
Load Balancing: Monitor electrical telemetry data to balance loads across different airport facilities. This ensures that no one area is overloaded, preventing electrical failures and optimizing energy distribution.
Demand Response: Utilize telemetry data to participate in demand response programs. During peak energy usage times, adjust non-essential electrical loads to reduce overall demand, potentially earning incentives from energy providers.
Fault Detection: Implement real-time fault detection systems to identify electrical issues promptly. This proactive approach minimizes downtime and ensures uninterrupted operations.
Predictive Analytics: Integrate flight data with HVAC and electrical telemetry to predict energy needs based on flight schedules. For example, heating or cooling can be adjusted in anticipation of a large number of passengers arriving or departing.
Gate Planning: Utilize real-time flight data to allocate gates strategically. Gates can be prepared in advance based on the expected passenger flow, ensuring comfortable conditions for travelers upon arrival.
Turnaround Time Optimization: Analyze historical flight data to optimize aircraft turnaround times. Efficient turnaround processes mean reduced idling time for aircraft, leading to energy savings and increased airline utilization
