Ikusi to present Fulmar, its unique passenger monitoring and tracking solution, at ACI-NA 2019.

  • The solution combines facial recognition technology, crowd analytics and WiFi tracking for more accurate tracking and a lower deployment cost.

Real-time monitoring and tracking of passengers that allows airport managers to know the status of the different points critical to airport operation at any given time, such as the check-in areas, security filters and immigration. That is the aim of Fulmar, the solution that Ikusi will be presenting at ACI North America (booth 1240), which takes place from 15 to 17 september in Tampa (Florida).

Ikusi has combined facial recognition technology, crowd analytics and WiFi tracking to offer airports a unique solution for passenger monitoring and tracking that will mean greater accuracy and a lower deployment cost.

The facial recognition algorithm, developed by Ikusi, provides excellent performance even in the most challenging situations. The crowd analysis technology offers a real-time, deep-learning model for busy environments. Furthermore, Fulmar connects to the existing WiFi infrastructure and tracks passengers during their transit through the airport. This technology, together with facial recognition and crowd analytics, allows passenger flow to be monitored in areas without sensors.

Some of the benefits offered by this solution, which is marketed under the name of Fulmar, include the application of facial biometric technology supported by cameras in the market, a reduction in the number of sensors installed and the possibility to predict passenger demand through the inclusion of historical data in the analysis.

Fulmar, driving non-aeronautical revenue

Fulmar’s monitoring and tracking capacity can also be applied for the optimisation of the airport’s commercial activities.

The combination of Fulmar and the Drangonfly solution, also developed by Ikusi, which captures sales in real time by using a wide range of integration methods, drives commercial revenue generation by correctly aligning the interests and needs of passengers/buyers, concessionaires and the airport operator itself.
