A Primer to Prepare for the Connected Airport and the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is defined as the infrastructure that enables advanced services by interconnecting physical and virtual things based on existing and evolving interoperable information and communication technologies. One airport application is providing indoor navigation whereby passengers are guided to points within the airport environment based on IoT devices. IoT devices can also be used to manage airport facilities for such functions as ambient temperature control, security, emergency response, and safety. As the airlines and other airport stakeholders use IoT, there are concerns about which entities have the data, what can or should be shared, privacy concerns, regulations, and the security of the data. The vast amount of data that is generated can benefit multiple stakeholders, but there remains a challenge to promote sharing and better use and control of IoT technologies. This primer introduces the concept of the IoT within the airport environment to leverage current and emerging technologies. Airport operators and their stakeholders can use this primer to understand the IoT environment and plan for implementation.
