Wouldn’t it be amazing if there are some transmitting devices which would act as your personal guides whenever you are doing an air travel? Jason Hope, the futurist and a technology enthusiast based out of Scottsdale, Arizona has a great hope for the Bluetooth beacons to guide you in the right direction if you are lost or headed on a wrong track. He also mentions how research and development are already on its way which would not only give you walking directions but also estimated time of travel towards the gate. And all of this could be accessed through your smartphones or any related smart devices. It would also notify you if the gates are being closed so that you could rush and not miss the flight.
There are at least a handful of passengers who would look for a wheelchair during airline travel. Jason Hope believes that with this new revolutionary technology, you would have no issues whatsoever as you will be guided to the place where you could find one. With this technology, even if the flight is delayed, you would not be bored as it would suggest you with things like bookstores or even restaurants in the near vicinity. Jason Hope mentions that many airlines are already doing some flavor of it and many more are on their way to implement it.
Jason Hope mentions that the overall customer experience is not going to stop here. Many top players in the industry are developing what they call seating sensors in order to monitor passenger enjoyment during the travel. If the passenger goes through conditions like fatigue or low hydration levels, it would automatically detect it so that the cabin crew could make necessary corrections. He also mentions how this amazing boon to the world is also helping airlines to increase their fuel efficiency. Auxiliary power units would be monitored and data related to terrains, weather, trajectory and navigation routes would be analyzed. One of the low-cost airlines have already stunned the environment and also saved heavily on fuel through this advancement.
Jason Hope strongly believes that airlines are just the beginning and this technology is bound to make leaps into other industries which would implement it in a heartbeat in order to sustain competitive advantage. He also makes projections about the limitless possibilities that could be derived from this technology which is certainly going to explode in the time to come.
