Arrow and IBM take smart IoT to airports (Channel Asia)

Arrow Electronics has launched a Smart Airport Asset Management Solution, an Internet of Things (IoT) solution co-created with IBM.

The offering is designed to provide airport operators with improved operational insights capable of optimising equipment maintenance to avoid downtime while improving traveller experience.

Based on an Arrow-designed and sourced set of IoT sensors and gateways, the solution also leverages IBM Watson IoT Platform and IBM Maximo Enterprise Asset Management software.

“Over seven billion passengers fly every year, so creating smart airports is smart business,” said Aiden Mitchell, vice president of IoT at Arrow. “This solution we have developed with our suppliers will help improve the customer experience and demonstrates the model that IBM and Arrow are implementing across the relationships at the heart of IoT.”

According to Mitchell, the Smart Airport Asset Management Solution collects data such as temperature, vibration and motor fluid levels from sensors on motors and other moving parts in escalators, moving walkways and baggage handling systems.
