Cincinnati Airport Installs New Passenger Monitoring Technology
System to Monitor Passenger Movements Throughout Day
Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport announced it is installing a system that will monitor passenger movements within the airport. The system, called the Chroma Airport Collaboration Database, uses a cloud-based technology called BlipTrack, which uses mobile device signals to monitor and record passenger movement at different points within the airport at different times of the day, and provides a real-time picture of how passengers flow through the airport.
The technology is designed to improve the airport experience for passengers by providing airport officials with information on congestion times in key areas such as security checkpoints. Eventually, passengers will benefit from real-time information about any wait times within the airport. The system is being supplied by Lockheed Martin.
The new technology follows other recent changes made at the Cincinnati airport to improve customer service and expedite passenger movement throughout the airport, including an overhaul of the passenger screening area.
The BlipTrack system does not capture any personal information from passenger devices; rather, it monitors the number of mobile phone signals in a given area at any given time.
