The Internet of Things (IoT) is becoming ubiquitous in several different aspects of life. From everyday routines to managing complicated machinery and vast industrial processes, the IoT is utilizing convenience and innovation to collect data with hopes of making people’s jobs and the operations of their workplace simpler and more convenient. The primary function of IoT technology that helps achieve this objective is gathering data. Airports can be chaotic, fast-paced environments that food and retail vendors, airlines, and maintenance workers would love to gather data from, to make their jobs easier and run more smoothly.

The array of data that can be collected and displayed via IoT technology in an airport setting ranges from tracking the time it takes to load and unload luggage, countdowns until flight boarding opens or closes, incoming and outgoing flights per hour, and even the amount of revenue, visitors, and foot traffic terminal restaurants and shops receive. The video below gets into more detail on how IoT technology can be properly utilized in an airport environment, ways that passengers and workers can both benefit, and the specific data that can be collected, which, in turn, can help improve foot and aircraft traffic, wait times at security checkpoints, check-in booths, and several other facets in this bustling setting.
