View has announced that its smart windows will be installed in Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s new expansion of Terminal D, a project that adds four gates to the terminal and showcases DFW’s “Gate of the Future” – a fundamental rethink of gate design in which the health and experience of passengers take priority. The expansion will be the first in an airport to deploy View’s latest smart building digital network, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning powered environmental sensor modules, and transparent ultra-high-definition displays.
Scheduled to be completed in April 2021, the project exemplifies the airport’s dedication to adopting innovative solutions in order to transform passenger experiences and wellness.
View Smart Windows use artificial intelligence and machine learning to power the windows, optimising natural light while controlling heat and glare, creating smart, connected buildings that reduce energy consumption and enhance the mental and physical well-being of occupants.
“DFW Airport’s commitment to providing an elevated passenger experience is as strong as our focus on finding new technologies and solutions that support sustainable methods to achieve that goal,” says Sean Donohue, CEO DFW Airport. “Our partnership with View is an example of finding innovative answers that improve the passenger experience, proactively provide more efficient energy usage, and reduce our carbon footprint.”
Every View installation includes a smart building digital network platform that consists of power, data, and communication infrastructure. This high-speed distributed edge network is the core platform for the next generation of applications like View Immersive Experience and View IAQ Insights.
View Immersive Experience will transform the smart windows at DFW into transparent, ultra-high-definition digital canvases, which can be used to communicate and entertain passengers by displaying meaningful information right on the glass. View IAQ insights are powered by View Sense environmental sensors that will turn gates into living, breathing entities capable of optimising humidity, air, and dust – all of which directly impact passenger health. DFW will be able to leverage AI-powered insights from this sensor data to make smart decisions to ensure a healthy and comfortable environment.
“As the world looks to build the infrastructure for the post-pandemic era, View Smart Windows are being adopted in airports at an accelerating pace,” says Dr Rao Mulpuri, Chairman and CEO, View. “We are thrilled to be partnering with DFW as they are outfitting the entire airport with View Smart Windows and opening up even more possibilities by being the first airport to deploy View Smart Building Digital Network, View Sense and View smart glass UHD transparent displays to create a healthy, fun and safe passenger experience.”
