Artificial intelligence software can help airport security experts plan for rapid changes in passenger flow
PETERBOROUGH, England, 17 Oct. 2011. Northrop Grumman Park Air Systems AS in Peterborough, England, is adding passenger flow forecasting and queue time management capability based on artificial intelligence software to the company's Airport Realtime Collaboration (ARC) system, which is designed to help airport operators and airport security experts plan for routine and unexpected passenger flow rates. In this way, airport officials can keep wait times in airport security lines to a minimum, and to make efficient use of security search personnel and equipment.
Northrop Grumman first launched ARC last January this year to help with airport planning and collaborative decision making. It uses existing infrastructure to deliver a situational awareness picture through Web-based views of the airfield operations. ARC's processes can be optimized to combine industry best practices with local airport needs.
