Airbus launches IoT platform for cabin componets
April 03, 2019 / Trade Arabia
Airbus has launched an IoT platform for the cabin, known as the Airbus Connected Experience, which will link in real-time interconnected core cabin components, including the galleys, meal trolleys, seats, overhead bins and other cabin elements. Up to now this has been a concept study, which is “coming to life” following cooperation agreements signed with three best-in-class partners: gategroup, Stelia Aerospace and Recaro Aircraft Seating with more to join. As well as allowing data exchange throughout the cabin for the crew, it is also planned that consolidated information could also be uploaded to the Skywise cloud for subsequent trend analytics.
