Intelligent Transportation Systems and Flight Tracking app data can be merged to provide real-time information that can reduce landside congestion at airports.
Background (Describe the current situation or problem in the industry, and how your idea would address it.)
Airports are constrained and increasingly rely on cell-phone lots to stage waiting vehicles. The current traveler information practice is siloed and does not contain useful, real-time information. This is a costly and inefficient land use. It would also increase safety and security of airports.
Objective (What is the desired product or result that will help the airport industry?)
An application that accurately predicts just-in-time arrival/departure data of planes for end users to predict accurate time for pick-up or delivery of passengers and freight, reducing wait time on airport property.
Approach (Describe in general terms the steps you think are needed to achieve the objective.)
Integrate available data (apps) to provide traveler data of real-time arrival and departure to reduce landside congestion at airports.
Survey of available data. Establish baseline of congestion at test airports.
Tabulate best practices.
Establish data sharing standards/formats.
Develop application using merged data.
Publish data for use and test/validate for congestion relief.
Cost Estimate and Backup (Provide a cost estimate and support for how you arrived at the estimate.)
Based on project management of other research studies, the estimate includes baseline research, data collection, app development, data validation and testing of results.
Related Research - List related ACRP and other industry research; describe gaps (see link to Research Roadmaps above), and describe how your idea would address these gaps. This is a critical element of a synthesis topic submission.
Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 70: Guidebook for Implementing Intelligent Transportation Systems Elements to Improve Airport Traveler Access Information provides descriptions, component details, and examples of how airport ground access information can be disseminated using various intelligent transportation systems (ITS) technologies.
Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 62: Cell Phone Lots at Airports reviews the information about airport cell phone lots to help airports determine if benefits of the lot outweigh any operating and maintenance costs and foregone revenues. A cell phone lot is typically a free parking lot at an airport that allows temporary parking until a traveler is available for pickup.
