India get its first IoT-enabled smart trolleys in Hyderabad International Airport

Hyderabad’s international airport has become India’s first-ever airport to introduce Internet of Things (IoT) enabled smart baggage trolleys, which will facilitate passengers to keep a tab on the availability of baggage trolleys in real time across the airport. 

This is in line with Government of India’s flagship Digital India Programme. The GMR Hyderabad International Airport Ltd. (GHIAL), in a move to make Hyderabad a Smart Airport City, launched this system to facilitate travel for people. 

Reportedly, the airport has deployed Long Range Internet of Things (IoT) platform for the Airport Baggage Trolley Project, and linked its entire fleet of 3000 baggage trolleys with IoT technology. This system will also help people to save time during travel. 

Referring to this, GHIAL issued a press release, stating that this technology is expected to bring substantial reduction in waiting time for baggage trolleys; the system will also ensure availability of sufficient number of trolleys. 

As per the press release, with an inbuilt alert mechanism in place, any trolleys if carried out of a ‘no airport zone’ area, will generate an alert message, tipping off the location for necessary action which can then be taken to retrieve. 

The said system is also equipped to plan ahead, based on predictive analyses of estimated departure and arrival passenger load, the release added. 

SGK Kishore, Chief Innovation Officer at GMR Airports, further stated in the release that the Hyderabad International Airport has been the flag-bearer of innovation and technology adoption in many ways, and that now they are revolutionising the way baggage trolleys are managed.
