What technological advances will change the traveler experience or the airplanes themselves?
1. Intelligent translators. Inner ear implants with nano-translators will be able to reproduce the voice and translate several languages in real time.
2. Radio Frequency ID (RFID). Some airlines already use RFID tags that emit a localization signal with all the baggage data (destination, stopover, airline, owner, etc.), a process that will minimize baggage loss.
3. (Super) portable devices. There are already smartphones that turn into desktop computers by connecting them via Bluetooth to a mini keyboard and a screen.
4. Connectivity. There are airlines that offer in-flight internet on all routes, although it is still expensive.
5. 3D printers. The cost of an airplane is very high, but, if printed in parts, the cost price would go down, something that will soon be possible.
6. Biometric recognition. Facial recognition systems are currently being tested at several airports.
7. Virtual reality. To help time pass more quickly on flights, some airlines offer first-class passengers virtual reality (VR) goggles.
8. Autonomous aircraft. A.I. systems are already being tested that will be able to make flight completely autonomous, avoiding human error and the cost of pilots to airlines.
9. Alternative fuels. Helium-3 (He3) will change the aviation industry, with the potential to be used as a clean fuel.
10. Genetic engineering. It would allow the creation of superhumans who can live with little gravity or oxygen.
11. Nanotechnology. Used in aeronautical engineering to achieve ultralight and stronger materials for airplanes.
12. Synthetic biology. This is a branch that combines biology, engineering and computer science to modify DNA. In the future, it may also be possible to create pilots who do not need to sleep.
13. Robotics. There is still no robot intelligent enough to serve as a flight attendant on an airplane. Interestingly, robo-phobia is a disorder in which a person has an irrational fear of robots and A.I.: Bill Gates and Elon Musk suffer from it; Stephen Hawking also suffered from it.
14. Quantum computing. It allows manipulation of huge combinations of data at the same time, so a single computer could direct hundreds of planes at the same time and no human personnel would be needed in the control tower.
15. Artificial intelligence. Seeks the creation of intelligent machines that behave autonomously like humans. When they have their own conscience and can reprogram themselves…. Will we be facing a future where we are controlled by machines?
Nubeprint invests 30% of its resources in R&D every year. With 5 patents registered to date, it is at the forefront of technological advances with its MPS solution (using algorithms and dynamic filters), Machine Learning (developed specifically for MPS) and the first and only DCA integrated in an application for cell phones (iOS and Android). All this so that companies like yours can build customer loyalty, optimize storage costs and offer an economically and environmentally sustainable value proposition.
