Honeywell Building Technologies is working with San Diego International Airport (SAN)’s accelerator program, the Airport Innovation Lab, to test the use of advanced video analytics technology to enhance airport health and safety.

Honeywell’s video analytics technology will be tested and refined at SAN in a real-life airport environment through early summer 2021.

Advanced analytics provide an industry-leading level of accuracy, when used in the recommended operating conditions, and can isolate and report instances of non-compliance to airport staff.

“We are pleased to have Honeywell’s technology be a part of our fifth Airport Innovation Lab cohort,” said Gina Jacobs, SAN’s Innovation program manager. “Honeywell’s video analytics technology aligns with our health and safety focus, and we look forward to working with them as they continue to develop it in the actual airport environment. Our hope is these ideas that advance here at SAN will work at airports around the world.”

“Honeywell’s video analytics solution can help airports better comply with and reinforce guidelines like social distancing and mask wearing,” said Manish Sharma, vice president, chief technology and chief product officer for Honeywell Building Technologies. “The powerful AI (artificial intelligence) and ML (machine learning) capabilities in our video analytics not only can help airport staff to identify trends, track patterns and understand how spaces are used but also can lessen unnecessary interactions with passengers to help keep staff safer.”
