A MONITORING SOLUTION FOR AIRPORT’S ELECTRIC GROUND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT

A MONITORING SOLUTION FOR AIRPORT’S ELECTRIC GROUND SUPPORT EQUIPMENT

INTRO

With the airline industry trying to reduce costs, heads of airport operations shifting their focus to more efficient electric ground support equipment (GSE). Teltonika Mobility has just a perfect solution to boost performance and save costs.

CHALLENGE

Air traffic has been increasing over the last decades, and so has the expansion of airports operations. The growth resulted in the addition of new passenger service equipment, in-house infrastructure and ground support equipment (GSE). The latter includes the likes of pushback tractors, belt loaders, container loaders, luggage tugs portable water trucks, and baggage carts.

 For a long time, diesel GSE has been an industry standard, however, electric ones have revolutionized ground operations by providing cleaner and more energy-efficient technology. Electric GSE integration into fleets makes sense for many airline companies since this type of machinery (based on lithium-ion technology) helps combat rising fuel and maintenance costs while smartly saving energy of the equipment on daily basis. Moreover, using electric tow tractors, cargo loaders, cargo transporters, and passenger steps can reduce  the emission of particulates and greenhouse gases.

The prospects for the GSE market are really bright since it is projected to grow from $4 billion in 2020 to $10.2 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 20.7%. Considering the specifics of this forecast and the growing electric GSE utilization, one can clearly occupy the niche with the right solutions for the electric equipment in the airports.

If you were thinking about potential success in this field, we have a smart monitoring solution for electric GSE to optimize work and maintenance processes.

SOLUTION

The solution revolves around our TFT100 tracker which is indispensable to any electric fleet. It can be installed on electric equipment and monitor its performance, thanks to the implementation of CAN/RS485/RS232 reading protocols that provide both tracking and management functionalities.

Fleet owners can be protected from unexpected malfunctions, as our device sends real-time data information about the GSE system performance directly to the user platform. The feature of predictive maintenance will also contribute to the constructive and timely management of your fleet.

The same applies to battery life monitoring. If you have a certain task to conduct, our solution may provide the battery status on request.

With the help of ignition status and GPS coordinates, you will be able to identify how long your GSE is working and its energy consumption over the day. At the same time, you will be also receiving data on the time when the biggest loads happened.

By reading and collecting real-time data and to your back-end server, you will always be in front of possible malfunctions of your vehicle.
Since the software is not included in the package of our solution, all of your data will be kept at your service.
