From the moment they enter the airport, passengers want a quick and smooth journey to the departure gate. Scarabee delivers smart technology solutions that optimise passenger flows.

Optimising passenger flow

Airports are busy, exciting and often confusing places. Airports have to ensure that passengers feel comfortable and can easily find their way from check-in and baggage drop off to the moment they board the plane. Scarabee helps airlines and airports handle passengers’ expectations. Our 3-D vision technology and real-time databases analyse and optimise passenger queues and flows, reducing passenger waiting times, informing them whether they are in the right place. Scarabee’s passenger logistic systems improve the passenger experience and increase airport business performance.

How can airports shorten border crossing waiting times and improve airport resource management?

Scarabee develops passenger flow analysis and control systems designed to inform passengers and shorten border crossing times. Using a fully-integrated system of cameras and software, passenger flow is monitored real-time and linked to border control staff resource planning. If the flow of passengers increases, extra staff are in place on time to prevent long queues. Displays inform passengers of any waiting times, providing reassurance. Privacy-by design sensors ensure that no sensitive data are stored. Data are used to continually improve existing staff planning models.
