The Austin (Texas) airport has started using its WiFi network to know how long passengers wait before passing the security check.
The platform detects passenger devices that are connected to the airport WiFi, provided by Boingo, or have Bluetooth activated. The system determines when a certain device enters the security queue zone and when it reaches the other end of the checkpoint.
This technology is in testing phase at three airports but Austin was the first to show the predictions. According to Boingo told the ITWorld website, WiFi data could be useful beyond security. Could help airlines estimate waiting times for their passengers and inform them how long before they should be at the airport.
