Hamburg-based startup, Jetlite, made it to the final round of judging with the idea that cabin lighting can have an impact on the comfort and even the biorhythms of passengers. The concept is applied in the Lite2fix cabin wall system, developed in collaboration with SFS Intec GmbH Aircraft Components. The wall shells can be installed into the aircraft fuselage using a simple snap-in process, and include integrated lighting scenarios and information displays for passengers. This ‘all in one’ idea was developed with the ZAL Center for Applied Aeronautical Research in Hamburg.
SOPHY from Safran Cabin is a tiny module that integrates with the catering trolley and provides the operator with information about the entire journey of the equipment, from maintenance and cleaning requirements, to load.
The elements within the cabin are clearly becoming more connected, as are passengers. Over the next 20 years, passengers will increasingly carry more mobile devices with them, meaning even more demand for on-board data volumes. The next-generation Mobile ONAIR 4G connectivity hardware from SITAONAIR strengthens the on-board network and will in future support 5G connectivity in the air.
