The INtelligent Airport

Aims of the project

Scenario

Airport terminals will increasingly require ubiquitous systems with high levels of computational power to provide the necessary intelligent automation; to provide high quality services to passengers; stringent levels of safety and security that are as unobtrusive as possible; efficient processing of commercial goods and luggage; high quality information systems; airport transportation systems and appropriate support for in-house commercial ventures.

So what is needed?

These requirements will involve both fixed and mobile appliances, and hence an intelligent, adaptive, self-organising and self-managing wired and wireless infrastructure will become an essential asset. This project therefore seeks to develop a new seamless wireless/wired ubiquitous infrastructure able to meet the above requirements.
