Tampa International Airport (TPA) has partnered with The Indoor Lab to deploy LiDAR technology throughout the airport.

By trialling The Indoor Lab’s LiDAR and AI solutions, TPA will act as a first-of-its-kind LiDAR laboratory with the aim of enhancing the airport experience.

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) has typically been used to measure the Earth’s topographical surface, and recently, has also been installed as a key component of autonomous vehicles.

The Indoor Lab now hopes to adapt this technology to provide airports with a singular monitoring technology that can be deployed across indoor and outdoor areas at all times of the day and night.

Marcus Session, VP of Tampa International Airport and ACI Chairman of ACI Americas said:

We are thrilled to embark on this journey with The Indoor Lab, setting a new standard for airports worldwide. Our goal is to provide an unparalleled experience for passengers and staff, and this partnership will play a crucial role in achieving that.

By tracking passengers, infrastructure, aircraft and baggage, the integration of LiDAR technology at airports could significantly enhance operations. This includes optimising staffing, maintaining cleanliness, reducing concession lines, minimising TSA wait times, speeding up plane turnaround times and improving safety on the tarmac and airfield.

As the project progresses, The Indoor Lab and Tampa International Airport will share their findings with the industry to help shape the future of airport operations.

Patrick Blattner, CEO of The Indoor Lab said:

This partnership with Tampa International Airport is a testament to our commitment to revolutionising the airport experience by leveraging cutting-edge LiDAR technology and AI solutions. Our collaboration will not only improve efficiency and security but also pave the way for airports of the future.
