What happens on the apron impacts everything at the airport — from safety and security to on-time departures and customer experience. Airport World, the official magazine of the Airports Council International (ACI), recently published an article about ADB SAFEGATE’s Digital Apron solution. The article explains how advanced technologies including fully-automated aircraft docking, data analytics, machine learning, artificial intelligence and real-time video surveillance can provide the information needed to transform airport operations.
AS-Vision is our mobility and situational awareness solution. It helps provide an overview of what is happening at the airport from an operational perspective. Mobility allows personnel who are going out into the airport to see what’s happening from wherever they are – so they don’t have to be sat at a desk in the terminal. They’re given the information directly in real-time so they can take action on incidents or problems as they occur.

In last couple of decades, air travel has become quite accessible thanks to the advent of low cost carriers (LCCs) and the millennial population’s affinity to travel for global experiences. While the spike in passenger footfalls have helped airlines, airports and other stakeholders achieve economies of scale, it has also forced the aviation stakeholders to expand their airport capacity. Now with COVID-19 travel restrictions, capacity is not a primary concern for airports. The bigger challenge now is to improve operational efficiency and improve predictability.
