Passenger Terminal Today
Elevator and escalator specialist TK Elevator has completed the installation of its new Remote Control System (RCS) for passenger boarding bridges at Istanbul Sabiha Gökçen International Airport in Turkey.
The RCS, which is a combination of hardware and software, enables passenger boarding bridges to be safely controlled by an operator from a remote position instead of the classic operation inside the bridge.
The new system consists of a set of cameras to give the operator an enlarged field of view when docking and undocking a passenger boarding bridge. High-precision sensors assist the operator during the positioning process.
