Airports are collecting and processing a large amount of data from a traveler, including but not limited to personal identification, medical records (COVID-19 related), and biometric information. The guidebook intends to analyze the status quo of how US airports handle data privacy and to inform airport stakeholders of a comprehensive strategy to guide them towards better data privacy management.
This project will develop comprehensive guidance for advancing social equity at airports, including example programs and initiatives, how to address equity in project management and staffing, and best practices for airport executives.
Intelligent Transportation Systems and Flight Tracking app data can be merged to provide real-time information that can reduce landside congestion at airports.
The research would develop a comprehensive guidance on concession agreement standards and terms. The new guidebook would update existing guidance and provides guidance on economic, operational and administrative issues not previously addressed.
New ways to ride from/to the airport are emerging: micromobility, autonomous and connected vehicles, electric vehicles, Hyperloop, underground electric skates, urban air mobility, etc. Old ways are being recycled and improved, such as (but not limited to) bus rapid transit (BRT), light rail, high speed rail (e.g., Brigthline station at MCO), etc.
A Service Operator Model (SOM) is a business model for airports to consider adopting which is a change for most U.S. airports from a landlord management approach to a more collaborative business approach by managing all of the functional areas of the passenger journey. The Guidance will describe initial steps such as developing the business model that fits your airport.
Evaluate the potential impacts to airport operations of connected vehicle technologies, including vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) communications.
