Empowering Seamless Collaboration for
Incorporating advanced Video Analytics, AI, IoT, and Mobility, ZestIOT’s Ground Radar transcends the boundaries of aviation operations.
This transformative technology allows Airlines, Airports, and Ground Handlers to collaborate effectively, leading to a harmonious blend of safety, efficiency, and speed. The result is not only an efficient turnaround but also a delightful passenger experience, setting transformational standards in the aviation industry.
ZestIOT’s Ground Radar Connected Operations is a cutting edge solution with powerful Camera AI/ IoT that monitors and analyses ground activity on a real time basis. Gathering data on a real time basis helps predict and provide solutions for ETA and Target off Block time. The AI model enhances Operations service experience assisting in optimal allocation of resources.
Unlocking Seamless Connectivity
