JFKIAT, the operator of Terminal 4 at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK), this week launched camera-enabled CrowdVision technology with new SafeDistance capabilities that can monitor social distancing from curbside and check-in all the way through security.
T4 is the first terminal in North America to launch the CrowdVision technology that can analyze real-time metrics, such as the number of passengers within the terminal, operational resources, queue times and more.
CrowdVision’s SafeDistance feature allows JFKIAT operations to spot areas that are too crowded and places where people need to be dispersed or reorganized to prevent any long period of overcrowding or overexposure. Live alerts can trigger interventions during operations to mitigate risk, and accumulated data helps identify opportunities for optimizing layouts, resourcing or processes.
“In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, JFKIAT took immediate action to establish a new normal within T4 to ensure the safety and security of our customers and employees,” said Roel Huinink, JFKIAT president and CEO. “The introduction of CrowdVision will not only help us become more efficient but will also help maintain a safe environment in the wake of COVID-19.”
