Undoubtedly, the major factor affecting research and development in the airport technology industry has been covid. The pandemic has caused a general slowdown in the industry in general and  R&D has been no different.

However, not all research has been put on hold. Social distancing measures have resulted in the increased development of passenger flow, queuing solutions. A similar trend can be seen with digital baggage-handling and screening products.

Additionally, efforts to develop the various different types of IoT and IoT-related technologies have more or less been constant, with the focus during this research period being on the application of AI and 5G in particular.
