Five Big Technological Trends that will Disrupt the Aviation Industry
Today, in the world of business, if there is anything that can change the game, then it is the technology which is advancing at every level. For 2019, the future of technology will be further transformed, it appears more exciting than before. The aviation industry is not left behind though.
The following technological trends are worth analyzing in the aviation industry:
• Blockchain Technology: Countless sectors are adopting and are benefitted from the blockchain innovation. The aviation industry is also enjoying this opportunity as blockchain technology helps in simplifying identity management procedure, helps in allowing change of baggage custody amid flights, airports so that in case of any mishap, the passenger's baggage can be tracked easily.
• Drones: It will offer opportunities to transport humanitarian aid during the disasters and is also useful in accelerating the aircraft inspection process as it can make the process 20 times faster. Drones are also helpful in reducing the risk of aircraft damage as they look like birds and their movements can chase away their living counterparts.
• Augmented Reality: AR seems to be a fantastic option especially in the aviation sector. If AR is incorporated into aviation passengers can then view locations with detailed information and can respond immediately with their VR gear. This can also be applied to the airport ramp to support ground operations through AR technology.
• Chatbots: Chatbots are surely a replacement for the multiple applications we need for different tasks. Well, 2018 has been termed as a year for Chatbots that acts as a single gateway which terminates the need of downloading multiple apps.
• Indoor Positioning Systems: Global Positioning Systems (GPS) function admirably on the maps on a bigger scale yet don't work with regards to precisely knowing the area of moving articles inside buildings because the satellite signs are regularly not strong enough and the accuracy is deficient. With the rise of Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS), following individuals' movements inside buildings will wind up far less demanding and airports are probably going to begin utilizing this innovation to give better services to passengers.
