15) ITW GSE: the battery driven 400 Hz Ground Power Unit.

 

iae 2019

From Amsterdam to Brisbane and Frankfurt to Los Angeles, environmentally concious airports are already benefitting from one of the world’s first battery driven 400 Hz Ground Power Unit. The feed-back from the customers is very positive and goes beyond the expectations to the ITW GSE eGPU. Many good things can be said about the eGPU, from the low CO2 emissions to the extreme flexibility and the capability to act as back-up units during peak hours.

Another great benefit that operating staff has valued is the silence! The low noise level also makes the 7400 ideal for use in hangar or at remote areas that can be located quite close to residential areas where high noise levels from diesel equipment running all through the night can affect the sleep of the neighbours.

The 7400 is the green alternative to diesel driven GPUs. It reduces the carbon foot print by as much as 90% and provides a healthier environment for airport staff, crew and passengers. Actually, replacing just one diesel GPU by a 7400 eGPU reduces the yearly emission by 190.000 lbs. CO2 which equals the emission of 50 average cars! ITW GSE has created a tool that clearly shows the impact that the exchange of one, two or the complete fleet of an airport’s diesel GPUs may have on their CO2 emissions. By the way, a diesel GPU creates 42% of the total emissions from ground support equipment used during a turnaround. Worth to think about!
The ITW GSE eGPU has undergone a visual and technical upgrade. Among others, cables are now well protected under closed covers when the GPU is not in operation. Moreover, the eGPU will soon be available with a 28 VDC option and in a hybrid version as well.
Thumbs up for the ITW GSE eGPU!

17) LINDE MATERIAL HANDLING GMBH: Linde Safety Guard

iae 2019

Did you know that it is not the heavy aircraft that cause most accidents at airports, but small vehicles such as tow tractors, baggage carts and working platforms? A large part of all damage reports from German airports come from the ramp – mostly caused by collisions between small vehicles or with parked aircraft.
Safety is our top priority at Linde Material Handling. We don’t just want to minimize accidents, we want to eliminate them. Our vision: zero accidents. One of our solutions: the Linde Safety Guard.
The Linde Safety Guard detects other vehicles or pedestrians before they recognize each other. It can reduce speed automatically in defined areas and can be configured to suit many dangerous scenarios. Active alarms triggered by hazards enable operators and pedestrians to react immediately. The innovative assistance system thus increases safety of all parties working in close proximity to each other.
So how does it work? Our units and sensors are mounted on vehicles and can also be attached to the infrastructure or carried by people themselves. The accident prevention of the Linde Safety Guard is based on warning zones, which are set up on site depending on the individual risks present. Imagine two tow tractors come dangerously close and a collision is imminent. That’s when our assistance system intervenes: it defuses the situation by providing an early warning to both drivers – accurate within ten centimeters.
Be it for travelers, airport personnel or vehicles of all kinds – safety on the ramp is non-negotiable! In fact, by making clever investments in assistance systems, you have the opportunity to minimize risks and save costs. With the Linde Safety Guard, we make sure that you are always in the protection zone – and you don’t even have to worry about it!

18) LOGIPIX LTD.: The Logipix Airside Video Monitoring Solution

iae 2019

 

The Logipix Airside Video Monitoring Solution provides extreme high resolution to realize full coverage and monitor everyday operations at the airside. The solution is a complex product with 200-320 MP Panorama Cameras, high-end PTZs, advanced NVRs and full software package.
Logipix Panoramas ensure so high ppm values that their images can either supplement or substitute normal observation for ground controllers. Instead of looking through a window with naked eyes or with binoculars, controllers watch panoramic images and use advanced zoom functions to get fine details.
Logipix does not just overlap images when creating panoramic views. Our technology makes it possible to geometrically stitch together images of individual sensors built into the Panorama camera house. The images are taken in a synchronized fashion which precludes the possibility of duplicated or hidden objects at the stitching borders. White balance correction smoothens the color gradient between the images.
Thanks to specially developed computer vision technologies the solution ensures the automatic detection, classification and tracking of all objects at the airside under all lighting conditions. Both cooperative and non-cooperative objects can be classified and tracked. Three type of objects can be differentiated even at far distances, namely humans, vehicles and aircraft. Based on intelligent VCA functions Logipix is also able to automatically detect several incidents occurring at the airside, and alert ground controllers immediately in the monitoring room.
Logipix allows to embed and virtually apply airside rules within the system. Different rules can be set for each monitored zones at the airside. These rules concern to different moving objects. Based on these rules the system can automatically detect and even predict several inappropriate events. Logipix is able to predict collisions based on motion estimation, generate dynamic proximity areas around objects, detect forbidden entries into prohibited zones and also detect overspeed violations at the airside.

APS (Aircraft Protection System) ─ Collision free pushback on the apron
Genuine investment in man and machine

Due to increasing efficiency pressure and the ever more dynamic environment, work and process safety are becoming more and more important at the airport. Whether aircrafts need to be pushed or towed, there is a major risk of collision.
SICK developed the APS driver assistance system for cost effective retrofitting on aircraft tractors. It provides a reliable warning that prevents collisions with other airport ground vehicles and the airport infrastructure to assist the driver with pushback processes on the apron, maintenance work even in tight spaces, and maneuver towing when moving aircraft into the hangar.
The system comprises a LiDAR sensor and a touch display with an integrated processing unit including application software. Even obstacles which are hidden from the operators field of view are displayed on the screen. Obstacles that pose a risk of collision are highlighted. The operator is warned in advance to ensure appropriate safety distances are maintained. The distance can be checked accurately on the display because the aircraft outline does represent the true aircraft type dimensions, thanks to an integrated database with all common types. In the event that a moving or stationary obstacle is detected in close proximity to the aircraft, the operator receives an audible and visual warning. As a result the aircraft tractor can be stopped in a timely manner in order to avoid a collision. It also provides automated fault detection and targeted maintenance thanks to self-diagnostics function. The integrated installation wizard makes it easy to commission and configure the system.
Using the APS takes strain off the drivers and reduces the risk of collisions and accidents, thereby avoiding high repair, maintenance and aircraft downtime costs.

27) TIPS D.O.O.: WheelChairLifter solution on TIPS telescopic stairs

TIPS D.O.O.
 

Every day, airports and airport ground staff face issues related to passengers who are disabled and physically handicapped. If boarding is taking place via a boarding bridge, these passengers can board in the same way as other passengers; in all other cases, however, a special boarding process for handicapped persons must be performed, which is often a time-consuming and costly procedure.
In addition to bridges, the most widespread manner in which passengers board planes is through passenger stairs and the most commonly used devices to help disabled persons board an aeroplane are special elevators, so-called ambulance lifts, which are expensive and are therefore not profitable for smaller airports. 
TIPS found a solution for enabling physically handicapped passengers to board the plane in combining telescopic passenger stair with a wheelchair lifter.

Innovative:
-    Solves the problem of moving the wheelchair lifter along the staircase, regardless of the degree of telescopic staircase extension and the tilt, namely through a moveable guide rail installed into the lower staircase which can be moved to the top of the upper staircase.

Cost-effective:
-    All-in-one vehicle: additional ambulance-lift not needed.

Accessible, practical and time-saving:
-    Modular design of the lifter, stored on the passenger stair itself; quickly assembled and ready for operation.
-    One-Man Operation of the passenger stair and wheelchair lifter.
-    When not in use, it does not hinder the passage of passengers.

Superb sensors & controls:
-    Smooth and stepless travelling of the lifter, as well as slowing down when approaching disembarkation position.
-    Detection of obstacles on the stairway.
