The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has announced that it will adopt a Bluetooth-based queue management system that will automatically measure and display the queuing time at key checkpoints in US airports.
The solution, which has been developed by SITA and Bluelon, uses Bluetooth technology to measure passenger traffic patterns at TSA security checkpoints.
This will allow waiting times to be displayed in real-time on screens at each checkpoint.
Paul Houghton, SITA president, Americas, said: “TSA is continuing to improve the experience for passengers at security checkpoints in US airports. SITA’s air transport industry experience allows us to help the TSA work more effectively in this environment.”
