GOVTECH CHALLENGE SERIES
How to automatically log plane movements in the airport?
Currently, data on plane movements at the airport is collected manually and stored in spreadsheets or other systems;
The data is then „cleaned“ and is sent manually or through radio waves to responsible institutions;
Collecting information manually can lead to human error, human resources are wasted and data collected is limited in its quality and extensiveness;
Without the necessary information, decision-making takes longer, planes are forced to stay idle. In other words, the fact that operations in the airport are organized with a static schedule and not an ad-hoc dynamic system is detrimental to the effectiveness of the airport;
Moreover, there is no automated control of illegal movements in the airport (especially in the vulnerable takeoff area).
Lithuanian Airports seek to automate tracking of plane movements and procedures using visual material from available cameras at the airport.
The identification of:
the plane number;
status recognition when the plane touches the ground and ends landing;
data collection on the duration of movement on the ground, the end of movement, parking, engine turn-off and turn-on, boarding, refuelling, filling the baggage, charging, standby, takeoff and other information;
All in an automated manner, using video cameras.
More information is provided in the presentation below.
This project is part of a larger digital transition strategy, which is an integral part of the road towards optimization that the airport is taking;
The project is incorporated into the implementation of the operations control center and the project is expected to be funded in the upcoming few years;
The problem exists in every airport around the world, thus the market is very large.
