Published on

On November 8th, 2018, ADP Ingénierie, in collaboration with Manipal Academy of Higher Education Dubai (MAHE) organized the ‘Airport Processes Innovation Challenge’ on the MAHE campus.

The aim of the Airport Processes Innovation Challenge was to give an opportunity to students to reinvent the arrival experience of passengers through innovative ideas. Students from the School of Engineering & IT and School of Design & Architecture presented their concepts, ideas in front of a jury which was comprised of school authorities and a panel of ADP Ingénierie employees. 

Nine-multidisciplinary team of students have presented their works in front of the Jury. In a short period, they succeeded to understand Airport process considerations and requirements while working out add-valued story and ideas. In every presentation, there was something to retain. A common framework from their proposal was to imagine a seamless immigration process and a self-bag delivery at the arrival but each group presented these concepts through different perspectives.
The enthusiasm of students has been a great satisfaction and mark of the event success, they have demonstrated their curiosity and interest for such challenge. This is also confirming that airport subjects are thrilling and a challenge to the mind, a strength for our company and market.

The winning team proposed integrated advanced technology to enhance passenger experience through airport arrival processes and for fast tracking.

Philippe Delaplace, ADP Ingénierie Senior Vice President, commented: "The jury was particularly impressed by the ability of the students to apprehend in such a short time, 4 weeks, the whole question in a field they knew nothing about at the launch of the challenge. The proposals focused on the use of new technologies, augmented reality, robots, AI, blockchain... all aimed to facilitate the passenger experience. The students have all been able to place the passenger at the center of their approach. The choice of the jury was not easy."
