Arrow and IBM to Reinvent Airport Operations with New IoT Solution
Smart Airport Asset Management Solution enables airport operators to improve the performance of escalators, moving walkways, baggage handling systems and potable water cabinets

Arrow Electronics has launched the Smart Airport Asset Management Solution, an innovative IoT solution co-created with IBM (NYSE: IBM).

Based on an Arrow-designed and sourced set of IoT sensors and gateways, the IBM Watson® IoT Platform, and IBM Maximo® Enterprise Asset Management software, the solution will provide airport operators with improved operational insights that optimize equipment maintenance to avoid downtime and improve the traveler experience.

The Smart Airport Asset Management Solution collects data such as temperature, vibration and motor fluid levels from sensors on motors and other moving parts in escalators, moving walkways and baggage handling systems. Additionally, sensors on potable water cabinets measure temperature, open/closed door, water flow and leakage to determine if the cabinet is functional.

Data is collected from the sensors connected to wireless gateways, and then consolidated and analyzed on the IBM Watson IoT Platform. The IBM Maximo® portfolio creates a more efficient asset management process using the collected data to drive workflows, resource allocation, and provides analytics to assess the health of assets to guide scheduled and unscheduled maintenance.
