The “Internet of things” will be trialled at London City Airport

26/03/2013

London City are pleased to announce that the Technology Strategy Board will help support LCY with investment of the “Internet of things” (IOT)– demonstrator. The TSB have only funded a small number of organisations with their demonstrator project which we are elated to trial.

The IOT is a concept of connecting machines and objects together through networks to help monitor, control and manage environments. London City will take the concept to the next level to develop an interconnected sensor network and data hub to track, understand and better manage passenger flow and behaviour, bringing the ability to interact with passengers at key touch points across the airport.  
 
Key features will include management of passenger movement through the airport, journey time measurement, customer loyalty programmes and location specific services such as personalised planners and gate reminders for passengers, food pre-ordering, locating missing passengers, baggage tracking, airport asset tracking and the ability to locate people in emergency situations. The project utilises Living PlanIT Urban Operating System technology and is being led by a consortium of organisations including Milligan, IBM, Cisco Systems and a number of SME technology businesses.  
 
The project is due to be completed in March 2014.
