11 Airport Navigation Systems

From Bag-Tracking Beacons to Indoor Navigation Apps

— November 6, 2015 — Tech
In recent years, airport navigation systems have become an important way of improving the travel experience for consumers. With airports around the world getting busier and busier, it is important that consumers have tools that provide them with accurate and relevant information about their flight. These innovative navigation systems use beacon technology to help improve the airport experience.

Beacons are essentially short-range location systems that connect to mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. One of the advantages of this technology is that it can help to streamline the transition from check-in to boarding. For example, there are apps that use beacons to communicate flight delays or check-in wait times, as well as apps that give travelers updates about their departure gate.

In addition to streamlining the check-in process, beacons can also be used to help passengers with special needs. For example, some airport navigation systems rely on beacons to guide the visually impaired. There are also wearable beacons systems that can help parents keep an eye on their children in busy airports.

As beacons gradually become an established part of airport infrastructure, consumers are presented with an increasing number of tools that can help improve the travel experience.
