2017 – Aeroporti di Roma selects XOVIS as its system for tracking waiting times at the airport

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.

2017 – Aeroporti di Roma: AVIAVOX wins the tender for public announcements at the airports of 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.
