Outsight’s spatial AI software platform, Shift, has received the 2024 Airport Excellence Award from GlobalData.

Shift’s ability to integrate “seamlessly with any LiDAR sensor and manufacturer makes it a versatile tool when working on projects requiring accurate and anonymous tracking of people in the terminals or vehicles in curb side, parking or air side”, Outsight said.

Based on 3D LiDAR software, Shift transforms raw LiDAR Data from a combination of different manufacturers into actionable insights, analysing positions and movements of people, objects, and vehicles. This helps airports manage and monitor passenger flow and vehicle traffic.

Raul Bravo, president and co-founder of Outsight, said: “This award not only signifies Outsight’s achievements and leadership recognition but also marks the evolution of LiDAR into a mature technology.

“Now deployed at scale in major international airports, LiDAR emerges as the third generation of people and vehicle monitoring technology, surpassing the adoption of the second generation, stereo-vision cameras, deployed over a decade ago.

“Once again, airports are at the forefront of technological advancement, driving more efficient operations, enhancing passenger experiences, and elevating safety standards.”
