EBO is pleased to have been one of the exhibitors at this year’s World ATM Congress at IFEMA, Feria de Madrid, Spain. A total of 237 exhibitors, alongside thousands of aviation leaders, were present for the world’s largest air traffic management event, held between the 6th and the 8th of March 2018.
As an innovative AI bot which is disrupting the way in which companies interact with their customers, EBO highlighted the significance of artificial intelligence for the aviation industry. In fact, the principal focus for this year’s World ATM Congress was on how emerging technologies are strongly impacting the industry.
Over the course of three days, attendees, ranging from product developers, experts, stakeholders and air navigation service providers, came together for a series of conference sessions. Several issues were at the forefront of such conferences including the safe integration of new entrants, such as unmanned aerial vehicles, into the airspace; the role of digitisation and virtual centres on ATM; the effectiveness of new technologies on the efficiency of airspace, along with others.
Amongst the numerous speakers at the event was Dr. Olumuyiwa Benard Aliu, President of the Council of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), who underlined how the challenges of aviation growth could be resolved through the modernization of infrastructure and procedures such as space-based surveillance and air traffic flow management. AI technologies have great potential to solve many such challenges within the industry.
The event, which was operated by the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) in partnership with the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA), also featured product demonstrations and launches, contract closures as well as many networking opportunities. EBO’s display stand proved to be of particular interest to many of the attendees, who were keen learn how our solution could help them reduce costs and increase growth.
As technology continues to dominate the way we do business, artificial intelligence has proven to be highly beneficial not just for the aviation industry, but for any kind of industry.
