Airlines are developing new strategies to increase the comfort of their passengers and to make flights more tolerable. Virtual reality headsets for the flight attendants are already introduced. But lately, Airbus announced one more feature that includes a new design and will change the travel routine.
This technology is thought to be revolutionary and will track down our flight habits. It will be installed into aircraft seating and wirelessly will monitor all the movements of the passenger. That also includes the need to use the lavatory. As it is known, in the past, the cabin crew had to write down every passenger who use this service on board but now the new technology will help to collect the data of this habit wirelessly.
Flight attendants will be able to track down the moves of the travelers and whether they are asleep or not with the smart system installed. In this case, cabin crew will not interrupt the sleepy passenger and will provide the meal service later.Also, when the passenger will make an order, the flight attendant will be notified about it wirelessly.
As said by Brendan Dorsey: "These seats work to display some incredibly detailed information about how passengers spend time in their seats. The connected cabin tablet, using the iSeat program, displays who's in each seat if it's occupied, whether the armrests are up or down if the seatback table is in use and if passengers are reclined or not."
For those, who want their privacy available only for them, this can be a creepy idea. As it collects all the information about the moves you make during the flight, every meal you take and more.Airbus. Photo credits: Brendan Dorsey
The good news is that the collected information will benefit for the future flights. How they will be operated, the meal choices, seating, and more. As Dorsey said: "If an airline knows that passengers rarely recline on flights of less than an hour, then it may place aircraft with seats that recline less on routes where it thinks travelers would tolerate it."Airbus technology.
