Materna Intelligent Passenger Solutions (IPS) will be exhibiting at the 2019 Passenger Terminal Expo (PTE) in London, UK, with innovative solutions for check-in, automated bag drop, access, biometry and monitoring.

From 26-28 March, PTE visitors can learn more about hybrid self-service bag drop solutions based on Materna’s standard product range at stand 3060. Materna IPS will also be demonstrating its new SMART tool for easy and intuitive monitoring of airport applications and single transactions.

Moreover, visitors will experience the entire automated passenger journey from check-in to boarding in an impressive virtual reality showcase. In preparation for the PTE, Materna also launched its new website.

At this year’s Passenger Terminal Expo in London, the Materna team will be presenting various kiosks for self bag drop, check-in and access at stand 3060. Visitors will learn more about Materna’s hybrid self-service bag drop solutions. Suitable for both self-service and agent service baggage drop-off, it gives airports optimal flexibility when deciding how the bag-drop station is used, according to capacity, queues and peak times.

A special feature at the Materna IPS stand this year takes visitors into a virtual environment where they are presented with various self bag drop solutions. The virtual tour showcases the entire passenger journey from check-in to boarding. Materna IPS also delivers these VR services, which are customisable to show any of the Materna solutions at any airport, to give customers an idea of how the future solution fits in with their terminal design.

Materna will be launching its new CUSS enrolment and ID-check application, showcasing the next-generation of biometrics integration in its self-service solutions.

Materna has developed its own SMART tool to give airports a better overview of traffic numbers, maintenance requirements, failures, downtimes and peak loads. This intuitive monitoring tool allows you to analyse the performance of airport applications down to single transaction level and show them in an intuitive dashboard-based control center.

ARGUS, the new floorwalker and service agent app by Materna, will also be presented at the PTE. It provides agents with a full overview of all kiosks and stations at all times. Agents can be notified directly via Android or iOS-based smartphones if there are calls for assistance and they can also handle simple kiosk administration tasks.

With more than 7,000 attendees and over 375 speakers, this year’s PTE will be the biggest event in the aviation world. The three-day event offers its guests a varied range of meetings and panel discussions on international developments in the industry. In the context of the Conference at PTE, on 28 March, Materna will be holding a presentation together with one of their largest customers, Hamburg Airport, entitled ‘Retrospective – one year of self bag drop at Hamburg Airport’.

In preparation for the PTE, Materna IPS launched its new website. The new website emphasises how Materna IPS is positioned as a leading international supplier of self bag drop solutions.

The website showcases Materna’s solutions along the complete passenger journey and reflects the IT service provider’s focus on improving efficiency for airports and airlines. Users will find a modern website with a clear layout and responsive design, including interactive 3D product presentations.
