This project aims to address passengers' arrival patterns at airports through analyzing accessible information in order to provide an informed guidance for the resource planning of public airports in the U.S.
Provide guidance for a collaborative safety effort in the management of landside safety. This guidance should include all parking and GTC operators as well as APP based operators (Uber and Lyft).
Intelligent Transportation Systems and Flight Tracking app data can be merged to provide real-time information that can reduce landside congestion at airports.
Concrete overlays are a growing trend in pavement maintenance and rehabilitation. Rapid-setting concrete overlays offer the potential or reopening aprons, taxiways and runways quickly. The viability and durability of rapid setting concrete overlays over asphalt or concrete airfield pavement should be evaluated and tested in order to provide airports and consultants with suitable practice guidelines.
The airport vehicle monitoring system and parking garages could be linked to local and national law enforcement centers to validate vehicle licenses... more »
Update and supplement ACRP Guidebooks 37 and 37A in terms of active airport APM systems (since the publication of those guidebooks in 2010) and incorporate best practices related to planning for, minimizing, and responding to viruses within the general context of the airport APM planning and implementation (Report 37) and airport APM operations and maintenance (Report 37A).
Evaluate the potential impacts to airport operations of connected vehicle technologies, including vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications.
Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) are coming... This project would develop a primer on the opportunities offered and the feasibility of widely implementing Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) at the airport - landside and airside.
Blockchain technology (e.g., open source Enterprise Ethereum) can be used as a vendor neutral integration layer to secure IoT devices to prevent malicious attacks, enable myriad IoT devices installed at the airports to work together in concert to unlock new value creation between different parties, and reward IoT operators for the value produced by data.
