Intelligent video based solution at Budapest Airport (BUD)
Shortening Lines for Security Checks
Waiting times at airport security checkpoints are often unpredictable, making them a headache for travelers and Security Managers. The right technology can provide some help – such as an intelligent solution that keeps lines from getting too long at Budapest Airport.
“The challenge lay in distributing travelers evenly between the checkpoints.”
Budapest Airport’s Security Director, Istvan Szabo, wanted waiting times to be displayed at the checkpoints. He says, “The challenge lay in distributing travelers evenly between the two checkpoints for the respective terminals.” Szabo didn’t have to invest in a wholly new camera infrastructure to make this possible – it sufficed to integrate five new Bosch cameras into the existing network.
