Treviso airport also joins the network of DCS iPort users. The number of passengers handled by iPort in Italy in 2021 will be 2 million, despite reductions in air traffic movements.
Arc Data works with its customers to reduce the impact of drastic cuts in air traffic and related revenues. At the same time, Arc Data is taking an active role with solutions such as XOVIS to help manage passenger flows in queues and help maintain safety distances. Public announcements regarding COVID protection measures in the AVIAVOX application are also made available free of charge to all airport customers.
Physical Distancing Management with Xovis 3D Sensors
Xovis has always been a leader in passenger flow data; even though that data has now changed course, we are still ready to go with the flow. In addition to counting a location’s overall capacity in real time, our sensors can also coordinate management of physical distancing. Our airport software Xovis “Passenger Tacking System” (PTS) helps you ensure the safety of your people when a contagious disease is present.
Arc Data has developed an application to install transparent adhesive LED panels on Cobus shuttle vehicles circulating at the Airport and used to move passengers to and from the Terminal from the Aircraft.
Arc Data and the Turkish giant VESTEL will collaborate on the Italian market for the marketing of displays for the FIDS and DIGITAL SIGNAGE sectors.
VESTEL is a technological giant in the field of durable consumer goods that carries out its activities with the mission of making the “highest quality” accessible to its customers and being a leader in the sector in which it operates. VESTEL aims to be the most powerful production and technology group in the world in its sector and to achieve sustainable and controlled development focusing on the production of high quality consumer products. Continuous investment in research and development helps to strengthen the exceptional position on the market.
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.
The vast number of Customers already operating in Italy with iPort, now increases with the participation of Pantelleria, Grosseto and Salerno Airports. Passenger movement in 2017 in Italy with iPort System is now expected to be over 2,000,000 passengers. Below is a map showing the airports where iPort is operational. These include Toscana Aeroporti, Cagliari, Ancona, Pescara, Trapani, Trieste, Perugia, as well as AGS Handler (for Verona, Milan Malpensa, Bergamo) and Aviation Services (for Naples, Catania, Bologna, Fiumicino and Ciampino).
AVIAVOX system for public announcements asserts itself as the best solution and wins the tender at Aeroporti di Roma. AVIAVOX system is based on phonemes and allows a perfect and indistinguishable message from the human voice in over 24 possible languages www.aviavox.com and will be implemented in the first months of 2018 in the two Roman airports. Public announcements appear to have a “natural” diction that is indistinguishable from the human voice in all supported languages, thus increasing communication between the airport and passengers and providing active support for airport noise pollution management, while creating a less frenetic and more professional environment.
Also the airports of Olbia, Bari and Brindisi have selected Paxtrack from RESA for the Security Check stations in order to improve service and gain more information about the transit of passengers. Paxtrack operates with both fixed gate stations and on mobile terminals. At Aeroporti di Puglia the installation includes the use of fixed gate from Kaba as well as a number of Zebra/Motorola terminals managed by the Security personnel. In conjunction with Crews, Paxtrack also captures data from Gate and Check-in stations for a full integration of the systems. To date in Italy Customers who have chosen Paxtrack are the airports of Rome (Fiumicino and Ciampino), SAC Catania and Comiso, ADB Bologna, Geasar Olbia, AdP (Bari and Brindisi).
With the end of 2016 approaching new important Customers have decided to implement iPort starting from 01/01/2017. Amongst these the airports of Ancona, Cagliari, Perugia, Pescara, Trieste and Trapani. For these airports we are also implementing tools to manage Telex messages to feed Airport or third party systems.
The AVIAVOX solution for public announcements, based on phonemes which allow to send announcements in over 24 languages in a perfect diction and indistinguishable by the human voice (http://aviavox.com/#listen), has recently been adopted by SEA Milan and AdB Bologna airports and is now being implemented. Announcements therefore result to be “natural” and indistinguishable from the human voice in all supported languages, thus increasing communication between the airport and the passengers and providing active support for airport noise pollution management, while creating a less frantic and more professional environment.
