What is the problem you found?
Airports are hard places to navigate, especially if you speak little-to-no English.
What is your opportunity?
How can we make travel through airports easier in a comprehensive way?
Who is your audience?
Travellers that aren’t confident in airports, especially people who speak little to no English.
What Is Your Solution?
We have created a mobile app people can scan their boarding pass with, and will connects to a tracker located on the handle bars of luggage trolleys (which also have a space to put your phone in to see) that will connect to sensors based around the airport. The sensors will find the location of the tracker, and then the tracker will send directions to the app to get to the gate it needs to get to.
Also, each terminal will be colour coded (e.g. terminal 1 is red) and that colour will be painted on to roads to that terminal, to help assist people get to the correct terminal.
