Advancing Efficiency and Safety with EVIE Air Side Ground Support Equipment
Evie Airside Pod
Airside operations are the activities that take place on the airfield, such as loading and unloading aircraft, refuelling, and deicing. These operations are essential for the smooth running of an airport, but they can also be dangerous and time-consuming.
Autonomous GSE is a new technology that has the potential to revolutionise airside operations. Autonomous GSE vehicles can operate without human intervention, which can improve safety, efficiency, and productivity. For example, autonomous baggage shuttles can transport baggage to and from aircraft without the need for human operators. This can reduce the risk of accidents and injuries and free up ground staff to perform other tasks.
In addition to improving safety and efficiency, autonomous GSE can also help to address the staffing challenges that many airports are facing. As the aviation industry grows, there is a shortage of qualified ground staff. Autonomous GSE can help to fill this gap by providing a reliable and efficient way to perform airside operations.
As the technology matures, we expect to see more airports adopting autonomous GSE. This will help to improve the safety, efficiency, and productivity of airside operations, and it will also help to address the staffing challenges that many airports are facing.
EVIE Air side Tug Pods can operate both within and outside of a building unlike traditional Automated Machine Robots (AMRs), EVIE Cargo Pods can operate both within and outside of a building unlike traditional Automated Machine Robots (AMRs).
We Advance Efficiency and Safety with a Scaleable and Flexible Autonomous Logistics Platform.
Evie’s autonomous technologies can be integrated into any existing airport ground support equipment (GSE) enabling them to self-drive and operate with precision and optimal routes, reducing unnecessary movement and saving time. They can streamline various tasks such as baggage handling, aircraft servicing, and towing, leading to improved operational efficiency.
With advanced sensors and collision avoidance systems, autonomous GSE can navigate airport environments while minimising the risk of accidents and collisions. They can detect obstacles, pedestrians, and other aircraft, ensuring a safer working environment for both employees and passengers.
