Outsight Wins the 2024 Airport Technology Excellence Award

Outsight’s groundbreaking Spatial AI Software Platform, Shift, has received the 2024 Airport Technology Excellence Awards, an event aiming to celebrate the best and greatest achievements in the aviation industry.

This award recognises Outsight's role in pushing the boundaries of Spatial Intelligence and 3D perception technologies on the global stage, with its Spatial AI and LiDAR technology solutions being deployed across four continents, and cements its position as the leading innovator in the Spatial Intelligence domain.

Shift's ability to integrate seamlessly with any LiDAR sensor and manufacturer makes it a versatile tool when working on projects requiring accurate and anonymous tracking of people in the terminals or vehicles in curbside, parking or airside.

6 Key Benefits of LiDARs for Airports
LiDAR systems are providing revolutionary insights for airports to boost efficiency, generate higher revenues and enhance passengers’ experiences

Based on 3D LiDAR software, Shift transforms raw LiDAR Data from a combination of different manufacturers into actionable insights, analyzing positions and movements of people, objects, and vehicles with laser precision.

This helps airports manage and monitor passenger flow and vehicle traffic, unlocking unparalleled capabilities in spatial analytics.

Shift’s capabilities include accurate localization and continuous tracking of the passenger journey in a fully anonymous manner. Infrastructure operators such as airports are readily provided with dozens of KPIs for each specific zone of interest, along with immediate alarms and statistics.

Shift is revolutionizing how airports manage and monitor passenger flow and vehicle traffic, providing unparalleled spatial analytics capabilities.
