Smart Airports using Analytics by HARMAN
Also at Inspire 2017, HARMAN, a wholly-owned Samsung Electronics subsidiary, will showcase an IoT-enabled solution for airports that demonstrates how asset tracking and predictive maintenance can improve operational excellence and passenger satisfaction, while mitigating security risks.  The solution uses secure Samsung sensors to send data to a Microsoft Azure IoT Hub, and data is assimilated by HARMAN’s predictive analytics solutions, after which relevant data is sent to an employee’s Samsung wearable or mobile phone.   This increases efficiency for airport activities, such as baggage claim systems, where vibration sensors can track the system’s equipment and monitor failure risk for preventive maintenance.

The Samsung Alliance Partner Program brings together best-in-class technology partners to help businesses accelerate mobile strategies through solutions that use Samsung’s innovative products, platforms and customer support.
