Flyer Shares Guide To Use India’s First IoT-Enabled Smart Trolleys At Hyderabad Airport

Hyderabad Airport was the first airport in India to come up with IoT-enabled smart trolleys. The launch actually marked a significant milestone in the digital transformation of India. Trying her hands on this unique technology, a social media platform X (formerly Twitter) user shared a video on her experience using it. She also shared a guide on how to use it. 

Flyer Uses Smart Trolleys At Hyderabad Airport

Social media is a good place to be sometimes, where people are free to share their experiences. It also helps people know about different new things around them and acts like a guide sometimes.  

A user on social networking site X (formerly known as Twitter) by the username @captrajlakhani shared a video. In that video, a woman can be seen demonstrating how to use the smart trolley step-by-step. 

The video began with her talking about how India’s digital transformation makes us feel proud of our country. She mentioned that the smart trolleys that are available at the Hyderabad airport look different from the rest, which is why many people refrain from using it.

Here’s why she thought of sharing this guide. 

  • Scan the QR code with your boarding pass after selecting “Start Now.” Click “Find Your Flight” if that doesn’t work.
  • Look over the flight schedule and choose your flight.
  • Your airport name, departure time, gate number, and flight status will all be displayed on the trolley’s screen once you’ve made your selection. The trolley will also notify you based on your boarding time.

The guide shared by @captrajlakhani on social media platform X (formerly Twitter) has by far received over 231.5K views and over 2.4K likes. 

Netizens commented on how this guide is making them try this trolley the next time they fly to or from Hyderabad airport. Many netizens also thanked the user for sharing this guide and helping them feel at ease about using these smart trolleys. 

The official X (formerly Twitter) account of Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport also commented on the video. They called the user’s feedback valuable and also thanked her for the favourable mention.

Cutting-Edge Technologies At Airports

Anand Mahindra also shared the video on his official X account and mentioned that he has not seen such trolleys in overseas airports.

A fleet of more than 3,000 luggage trolleys has been outfitted with IoT technology under the Airport luggage trolley project, utilising the LoRa (Long Range) platform. With the use of this technology, passengers will be able to access baggage trolleys more quickly and in real-time.

Additional cutting-edge technologies that the airport has put into place include the first-ever centralised and integrated Airport Operations Control Centre (AOCC), E-Boarding, camera-based contactless terminal entry, Express Check-in, Automatic Tray Retrieval System (ATRS), AI-based passenger flow management, and a number of others.

Moreover, the 14th International Annual Conference Cum Awards for Civil Aviation 2023, held in January, saw Hyderabad’s GMR International Airport recognised as the ‘Best Airport in the Application of Technology,’ a coveted distinction.
