Transportation is the most affected sector after the COVID-19 pandemic. Everyone is under the restrictions of not traveling as they have to maintain the norms of social distancing. In this situation, the Aviation industry is suffering a lot, both financially and economically. That’s why now it is looking out for technological development. Hence, the use of Artificial Intelligence has emerged now. It is being used to build business elasticity to survive the aviation industry.
The tools of AI robotics, autonomous vehicles, partner ecosystems, and digital platforms are helping the Aviation industry across the world to limit contact and still keep the business intact. For example, robots are being used to replace the human workforce at airports so that lesser people come in contact with each other, and social distancing norms are followed.
How Digital Transformation is being used in Aviation:
The focus of the aviation industry has shifted from acquiring new aircraft and building more runaways to the health, hygiene, and safety of the environment. Thus, the question is now about industry survival. They know that a hygienic environment needs to be maintained so that passengers & workers could feel safe.
- By building Financial Resilience
There is huge precipitation in the number of passengers since the pandemic. Therefore, the suppliers & manufacturers have to minimize the production cost in the Aviation industry.
- Using Digital Twin
With the help of the digital twin, a lot of work is possible virtually. They can form a virtual airport or the physical airport. It could be linked to AI to stream all the data of the airport.
Then the real-world data could be computerized and fed into it, to spot the loopholes in operations. In the real airport, systems could fill those inefficiencies.
- Partner Ecosystem
Earlier, airports had to work with different experts to do airfield management, terminal management, to fulfill transport or passenger needs. But now, the AI development services are offering chips, machines, and software to let the different experts from diverse fields develop their own algorithms in an open platform. These different algorithms could then be consolidated and used for aviation development.
Also, with an AI system, machine learning could be used to detect stoppage and milestones of servicing a flight.
The role of technology in Aviation:
Now, that the aviation industry has no other option, it has to comply with the norms of the pandemic. Thus, driverless technology is useful to maintain stable airport operations during the shortage of workforce.
AI provides a collaborative approach to help the industry recover from the losses. This approach aligns with domain experts & technology partners to develop the solutions.
Also, technology is adding huge value to the lives of customers. They have shifted to ‘touchless travel’ with their own devices. This is led to the survival of the industry and the happiness of consumers as well.
