On the use of beacons at airports. A Star Wars Tribute.

 

On march, 2015 I attended to the Passenger Terminal Expo (PTE2015), and one the topics involved across all the thematics tracks was the beacons. Read about this and PTE2015 here: On depersonalizing the Passenger Experience –  A  PTE2015 summing-up. So, I wanted to test this technology, interact with it for creating a simple iOS application with a little basic functionality, and I also tried to reuse the DCS iPad App for getting some benefit. Let’s see what is this technology, why is so simple and powerful, why it is hot, etc. I put some photograms, with its original dialogues, of the Star Wars – Episode IV, this movie has some scenes that makes me think about some similarities with this specific beacon world, or I’ve just simply found an excuse for combining both worlds, who knows? :)

On depersonalizing the Passenger Experience

Passenger Terminal Expo (PTE) 2015 took place on 10-12 March in Paris, this year I had the privilege of attending to PTE. One of the topic conference’s mainstream was Customer Service & Passenger Experience. The several visions and approaches I’ve seen, from the airport industry, will guide the following post’s content.
