July 15, 2022

Swedavia’s strategic initiatives and innovation team engage WiTTRA Networks by trying out WiTTRA’s IoT Infrastructure at Stockholm’s Arlanda airport.

May 19th 2022:

WiTTRA Networks AB, the IoT infrastructure provider, today announced the completion of a successful test at Arlanda International Airport as part of Swedavia’s strategic initiatives and innovation program. The test focused on resource and asset optimisation covering different aspects of the airport’s day-to-day operation to enhance passenger service levels.

Conducted in Terminal 5 for 3 months the WiTTRA solution was used to track the location of wheelchairs, their occupancy and availability generating insights and data which saves time locating available wheelchairs and ensuring passengers can be quickly supported during boarding or disembarkation. In addition, WiTTRA’s solution was also tested to monitor and report on the operational health of automatic doors, revolving doors and escalators to ensure passenger flow is maintained and optimised throughout the airport. 

Swedavia’s requirements for system reliability, ease of installation, low onsite disturbance and ease of network management were all realised during the test. Visualisation and analyse of the data were made through the eSeeTrak platform from Thellio (part of the HiQ group). 

The WiTTRA test demonstrated the ability for multiple different use cases to be accommodated within one Technology deployment. 

WiTTRA’s CEO Håkan Dackefjord adds “Being able to help out Swedavia on such an important test has been a pleasure, the opportunity to demonstrate the simplicity of the WiTTRA approach in unlocking the power of IoT is our raison d’être and we would love a continued engagement.”
