View smart windows will be installed in Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s as part of the expansion of Terminal D, which rethinks gate design and prioritises the health and experience of passengers.
Dallas Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) is installing smart glass windows as part of its terminal expansion to help ensure passenger health and experience is prioritised.
The glass, from connected buildings specialist View, will be used in Terminal D where four new gates are being added. It will showcase DFW’s “gate of the future”, which demonstrates a fundamental rethink of gate design.
Scheduled to be completed in April 2021, the expansion marks an airport first when it comes to deploying View’s latest smart building digital network, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning powered environmental sensor modules, and transparent ultra-high-definition displays.
The high-speed distributed edge network is the core platform for the next generation of applications like View Immersive Experience and View IAQ Insights.
View Immersive Experience transforms the smart windows at DFW into transparent, ultra-high-definition digital canvases, which can be used to communicate and entertain passengers by displaying meaningful information right on the glass.
View IAQ insights are powered by View Sense environmental sensors that will turn gates into living, breathing entities capable of optimising humidity, air, and dust, all of which directly impact passenger health. DFW will be able to leverage AI-powered insights from this sensor data to make smart decisions to ensure a healthy and comfortable environment.
“Our partnership with View is an example of finding innovative answers that improve the passenger experience, proactively provide more efficient energy usage, and reduce our carbon footprint”
“DFW Airport’s commitment to providing an elevated passenger experience is as strong as our focus on finding new technologies and solutions that support sustainable methods to achieve that goal,” said Sean Donohue, CEO at DFW Airport. “Our partnership with View is an example of finding innovative answers that improve the passenger experience, proactively provide more efficient energy usage, and reduce our carbon footprint.”
Dr Rao Mulpuri, chairman and CEO of View, said as the world looks to build the infrastructure for the post-pandemic era, its Smart Windows are being adopted in more airports.
He added: “We are thrilled to be partnering with DFW as [it is] outfitting the entire airport with View Smart Windows and opening up even more possibilities by being the first airport to deploy View Smart Building Digital Network, View Sense and View smart glass UHD transparent displays to create a healthy, fun and safe passenger experience.”
