Singapore’s Changi Airport has unveiled a five-year programme called Living Lab which will allow live testing of technology products and services within the airport.

The airport is partnering with the Singapore Economic Development Board to invest USD 50 million in the programme which is similar to other recent incubators launched in travel.

The idea is for Changi to work with startups and other companies to develop and test new products at the airport and the lab will focus on a number of areas.

1. Automation and robotics – to ensure resources are used most efficently.

2. Data analytics and the Internet of Things – to look at opportunities for gathering real-time information within the airport and enable it to make better decisions on operators. It will also look at data on consumer behaviour to gauge habits and preferences so relevant products and services can be created.

3. Non-intrusive security technologies – Changi Airport will look at how it can reduce stress and improve the passenger experience through better security processes.

4. Smart infrastructure management – will look at how sensors and IoT can help improve processes.
