Most queue-management systems today work on either WiFi or camera technology, each of which comes with its unique benefits. Imagine what is possible when you combine the two.
Combining and refining existing technologies to take maximum advantage of their benefits, while at the same time reducing – or even eliminating – the negatives, provides the perfect opportunity to bring real change to the market. That is why we are excited to propose a market-leading hybrid Cam/Wi-Fi solution, which does just that.
Sensors, whether camera or WiFi-based, are costly to install and calibrate, and there is a direct correlation between numbers, cost, and lead-time. In other words, keeping the volume to a minimum while maintaining a high accuracy level is in everybody's interest.
Thanks to sophisticated data fusion, the hybrid Cam/WiFi solution can calculate occupancy numbers with high precision, thereby minimising the number of camera installations, while still achieving near 100% penetration. Also, robust queue time measurements, as well as state-of-the-art, predicted waiting times can be presented.
The BlipTrack Cam/WiFi hybrid combines the strengths and minimises the disadvantages of two independent technologies, giving you a solution that:
- Provides high accuracy as with a pure camera-based solution, but at a significantly lower cost due to fewer installments
- Thanks to fewer instalments, is quicker to implement and faster to calibrate
- Has a >95% sample rate, which is more than adequate for measuring occupancy and queue
- Robust to ceiling heights and obstructive views
- Does not require a dedicated network for sensor connectivity
Solutions to measure occupancy and queue times do not need to result in cameras taking up every available corner, nor do they need to be prohibitively expensive. By using the right combination of cameras and WiFi sensors, we are helping make sure that the guest experience is smoother, quicker and much more pleasant.
“BlipTrack complements our other data sources very well. The ability to measure travel times, monitor queues and perform origin/destination analysis convinced us to adopt the solution for the city of Stockholm.”
CEO of Trafik Stockholm
“BlipTrack was a critical investment. The data has provided valuable insight into our operational performance across both our assets and processes. Most importantly, it has enabled us to have meaningful conversations with our key operational stakeholders and vendors, as we collectively seek to improve the passenger experience.”
Manager - Passenger & Terminal Operations at Auckland International Airport Limited
”BlipTrack helps us to identify how passengers move through and use the airport, from the time they park, to when they leave, and everywhere in between. It enables us to look for patterns through the day/week, to see the impact of the various actions we implement, to reduce bottlenecks and waiting time for the passengers.”
Chief Commercial Officer and Deputy for CEO at Billund Airport.
“Avinor has been working closely with BLIP Systems since 2009. We value the long-term cooperation and their professional approach in providing us with technology and data to ensure efficient operations and passenger satisfaction.”
Lars Erik Flatner
Head of ICT Portfolio at Avinor.
“It´s been an excellent project with great support from the design, installation and technical team. The BLIP Systems´ team are a credit to the organisation and have helped the airport immensely, with data analysis and reporting.”
Head of Terminal Operations at Birmingham International Airport
“We had very high expectations prior to the introduction of the system, and I am very happy to say that the outcome has proved very successful. The system has capabilities of further enhancements which will provide other long term solutions in the future.”
Operations Director at Bristol Airport
“With BlipTrack we are able to keep our passengers fully informed24/7 – both in the terminal and online – about what to expect at security. At peak times, up to 3,000 passengers an hour travel through security and our aim is to make that experience as smooth as possible whilst ensuring safety – BLIP Systems helps us do that.”
Chief Operating Officer at Edinburgh Airport
“BlipTrack has helped identify time periods where passenger wait times exceed 10 minutes, thereby allowing us to assess schedule deficiencies and taxi dispatches. The data has greatly helped improve the customer experience by providing us the ability to schedule taxis to be available when needed.”
David J. Boenitz
Director of Ground Transportation at San Diego International Airport.
“BlipTrack helped Thai citizens to travel home faster during two major traffic events: Songkran and New Year holidays. The system allowed not only road users to decide route choices via travel time info online but also the Thai Highway Police to manage traffic in real-time.”
Dr. Songrit Chayanan
Director of Samut Sakhon Highway District.
“We use BlipTrack to see when levels of service are breached and locate the reasons. It help us to identify work shift problems and to make more informed decisions.”
