Jason Hope is a futurist, entrepreneur, businessman, and philanthropist. He is incredibly passionate technology and how it is going to change the world, particularly when it comes to IoT (Internet of Things). This is smart technology that is all interconnected to the internet. Jason Hope says the great thing about this smart technology is that it can really improve people’s lives, make them easier, etc. On that note the airline industry will really benefit from this innovative thinking.
When it comes to safety engines are covered! There are sensors everywhere and can tell people whether an aircraft needs new parts, what performs poorly or good, and can even let them know of impending maintenance checks to make sure everything is running smoothly. It goes deeper than that. Life jackets, toolboxes, etc are also monitored to make sure they all work properly and have all the necessary supplies in case of emergency. Now that’s high tech! New aircraft technology by GE Aviation can fuel consumption so it can be more efficient. Jason Hope says this new technology tracks everything from weather patterns, to terrain conditions, to navigation routes to save fuel, which can be really expensive for anything of that size and weight.
Bringing baggage with you that is not a carry on? Well new smart technology helps you track you bags from start to finish of your flight says Jason Hope.
This means less worry that your bags will get lost or stolen. When you go to pick up your baggage it can sense what carousel you are at and goes to your location for easier access. Now that we talked about safety and baggage, let’s get to the good stuff, creature comforts and customer service. It can be a stressful experience at the airport getting to your gate in time with all the lines, walking, and security checks. There are new systems in place where you will get your boarding pass one full day before your flight. As far as creature comforts, new seats will monitor passenger’s comfort levels so that each person can have a more enjoyable experience flying. They even have sensors for pet who are also along for the ride. Tapping In: Jason Hope Reveals How IoT is Revamping the Airline Industry
