“WiFi based passenger tracking at HEL”

“Up to 300 tracking devices will be installed across the airport in total, each of which can pick up the WiFi signal from smartphones in their vicinity. These signals enable Finavia to pinpoint the exact location of a WiFi-enabled smartphone, and therefore the specific location of the smartphone’s owner. Importantly, none of the passengers’ personal data is stored. While WiFi sensors have been installed initially, Finavia has suggested that beacons, which use Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology to locate and push notifications to Bluetooth-enabled personal electronic devices, could also be installed in the near future. ”
