HRS Provides Simulation Expertise For Passenger Screening at Liverpool Airport

Human Recognition Systems : 10 May, 2010  (Application Story)
Biometrics and Behaviour Analytics specialist is working with Liverpool John Lennon Airport to simulate the passenger screening facility to enable the airport to plan for the future
Liverpool John Lennon Airport has taken an ongoing licence for a simulation tool developed by biometric and behaviour analytics experts Human Recognition Systems (HRS) to maximise passenger capacity, flow and airside retail experiences as it forges ahead with its £12.4m development project.

The new model - created by HRS' Transport team led by Jim Slevin - has initially been used in the proving and planning of the new passenger security screening facility, which will be three times the size of the existing facility and house the latest generation security equipment.

Following acquisition of the simulation model Liverpool John Lennon Airports Planning & Development team are able to further model re-development and operations to best manage forecasted growth in passenger and staff throughput, reducing ticket processing, search and queue times and improving airside retail experiences.

The HRS system makes use of Lanner Witness simulation software - favoured by the likes of Air France, Airbus, UK police forces and global manufacturing companies including Nissan - which has then been enhanced over the last four months to be able to respond specifically to Liverpool John Lennon's ongoing needs.

Using dynamic computer models of the 'as-is' and 'to-be' ticket presentation and passenger security screening facilities real-life 'what if' scenarios have been generated and will continue to be fully investigated so that the best operational responses are identified.

Steve Gill, Group Environment & Facilities Director for the Peel Airports Group (that includes Liverpool John Lennon, Robin Hood Doncaster Sheffield and Durham Tees Valley Airports) said: "These are exciting times - working closely with HRS' aviation experts we now have a tailor-made simulation tool that can model hundreds of potential events involving passengers within our airport, taking into account our staff resource, known constraints and the way we currently interact.

"This gives us significant advantages over real life experimentation in terms of cost, time and repeatability - and the tool even includes the randomness and variability we all see in real life, despite painstaking planning."

Jim Slevin, Transport Business Unit Manager at Human Recognition Systems said: "Liverpool John Lennon Airport is now one of the UK's top ten busiest airports, with record numbers of passengers travelling on constantly expanding services and routes from major airlines.

"We are proud to be working with Liverpool John Lennon Airport and that our simulation tool will play a valuable role in visualising the impact of increased passenger and staff numbers on the physical structure of the airport, so that processes can be honed in the best interests of Liverpool's passengers."
