We have a great article on one of the hottest, most exciting technologies around this week: computer vision applied to turnaround management. Imagine a computer "looking" at an aircraft stand and detecting events like "bridge connected", "fuelling completed" or even safety alerts like "no cones detected". Does this sound like the future of turnaround management and the future of CDM? This is what Assaia is already doing at Gatwick airport with their Apron AI technology. Read our exclusive interview with the company's Chief Customer Officer Christiaan Hen to learn more about this technology, its origin, the obstacles it encountered, the opportunities it brings and the future of using AI to improve turnaround management.
