PRESS RELEASE. ADB SAFEGATE and Assaia have successfully delivered pilot projects featuring a first-of-its-kind concept at a number of pioneer airports around the world. The concept combines ADB SAFEGATE’s Safedock A-VDGS built-in cameras with Assaia’s ApronAI image recognition capabilities to record turnaround events in real-time. The solution offers airports unprecedented transparency and resilience in apron operations.
By connecting the world, aviation brings us closer and fuels economic activity, by supporting a subset of industries including travel and tourism, hospitality, logistics, retail, food, healthcare, energy, manufacturing, entertainment and e-commerce. It is almost a year since the pandemic struck and restrictions of some sort came into effect. As the global aviation industry continues to weather the storm and charts its recovery, here’s a two-part series on trends that are shaping our industry in 2021.
As part of a special report on information technology, Airport World, the official magazine of the Airports Council International (ACI), published an article written by ADB SAFEGATE’s Thorben Burghardt on closing the data gaps to automate airport operations. The article looks at how data has become the new integration layer for applications of multiple vendors.
