Preparing for the Connected Airport and the Internet of Things

The objective of this research was to develop a primer for airport operators and stakeholders on the Internet of things (IoT) within the airport environment to leverage current and emerging technologies. The primer should include at a minimum the following: (1) How other industries have implemented the IoT and relate its application to the airport environment; (2) Description of barriers and limitations to IoT implementation and how they can be overcome. (3) Data collaboration and information sharing methods, techniques, and standards that benefit airport stakeholders by interacting with: Tenants, Airlines, and The connected community; (4) The intersection between airport processes and the passenger with the IoT in the airport environment; (5) Infrastructure requirements; (6) Application of the IoT at general aviation and small hub airports; and (7) Emerging capabilities.
