ARC DATA and XOVIS have been selected by Aeroporti di Roma to install the system for detecting passengers’ waiting time at the airport and tracking their movements and habits.The Xovis Passenger counting and Tracking System (PTS) enables airports to reach new levels of passenger flow analysis and steering. Besides the normal passenger counting, process and waiting times in queuing areas can be measured precisely. The behaviour of passengers can be analysed and the passenger flow can be managed by switching the signalization, controlling escalators, etc.At the 53 airports, 288 passenger touchpoints (such as check-in, security control, immigration/passport control, taxi ranks, retail areas, people mover, toilets, baggage reclaim, lounges etc.) are equipped, with a total of almost 7’000 sensors.
With its 3D stereo vision sensors, Xovis PTS guarantees penetration or sample rates of up to 98%, meaning that 98% of all passengers in an area will be registered by Xovis PTS. Even more importantly, the sample remains at this level constantly. Xovis PTS is an extremely precise measurement system. Unmatched sample rates allow to retrieve KPIs on a minute-by-minute basis. The system detects individuals even if they are only 20 cm apart from each other. Also, the 3D stereo vision sensor is stable against lighting changes and shadows. Only optical 3D sensors guarantee precise measurements with constant sample rates of up to 98%, whereas Bluetooth or WiFi based systems are rather statistical approximation than precise measurement.
