The self-proclaimed futurist explained several ways in which the Internet of Things is transforming the Airline Industry. They include:
Jason Hope spoke about how Boeing 787s comes connected from nose to rudder. He explained that every part of the Virgin Atlantic’s plane is linked to a wireless network. The wireless connection allows the collection and analysis of real-time data. The internet also facilitates scheduled maintenance. What is more, beacons are continually monitoring the state of safety items such as toolboxes and life jackets. Travelers who are scared of flying can, therefore, find peace of mind.
Better customer service
Airlines are using IoT to get rid of the grumpiness witnessed in recent years on airline passengers due to deregulations, hard-to-predict ticket prices, and heightened security. Check-ins have become more straightforward because they are done via email with seats being allocated within 24 hours before takeoff. Passengers will soon enjoy higher levels of comfort thanks to creature comforts. A couple of airlines are devising seat sensors for monitoring passenger enjoyment. These sensors will detect aspects such as uncomfortable temperature, low hydration levels, and fatigue after which cabin crews will make the necessary corrections.
Proper baggage handling
According to Jason Hope, Soon enough, airlines will embed beacon technology in luggage tags. As such, passengers will be in a position to keep a virtual eye on their luggage from the time they check-in until their destination.
GE Aviation created technology capable of optimizing fuel efficiency. The technology also keeps track of the utilization of auxiliary power units. It collects data for factors such as trajectory, weather, navigation routes, and terrain conditions and then analyzes it on the fuel-efficiency dashboard.
