We have already talked about how technology has become involved in everyday life. However, today we can see how robots are becoming more and more integrated into the routine, and this is how we can already see them in airports worldwide.
To provide security, trust, and support, there are already some airports that have implemented the use of robots within the installations.
Airports in London, Japan, and the United States are just some of the terminals that already have robotic units to perform different tasks that help to streamline the development of the same.
It is estimated that by 2028 the market for robots in airports will reach US$2,108 million, according to Research & Markets. This means that the growth of such technology will grow exponentially year after year.
New smart strategies…
After turbulent years due to Covid-19, the airline industry was forced to look for alternatives to weather the ravages of flight groundings, massive layoffs, and financial decline. But, amid the formula for a new take-off, they found the benefits of digital transformation.
These brought unbeatable benefits to lift the sector back on its feet. Among them were electronic vaccination ballots, the use of software for airport administrative management, facial recognition and artificial intelligence for passenger control, and more.
That is why now, robots are joining this formula to enhance the needs of air terminals.
Robots, a good decision?
Some of the functions that robots fulfill in airports can be found:
- Strengthen security in terminals, with the ability to prevent dangerous events.
- Thanks to artificial intelligence they can detect prohibited or dangerous artifacts such as explosives.
- Manage passenger transit, boarding pass scanning, and more.
- Keep cleaning tasks unimpeded.
These are just some of the tasks that are currently being taken advantage of, but, this will not stop here as the world of robotics will begin to grow exponentially and will be increasingly implemented around the world.
