Flight information display systems (FIDS) are used at airports to display the real-time flight information to passengers. Information displayed are arrivals and departures of flight information in real-time.
The Follow Me Sign is a mobile LED Message Board used as a visual guide for aircraft at airports. Pre-programmed messages—including follow me, stop, wait, left and right arrow indicators, and slow down—are used to direct aircraft to the right location on the ramp/apron.
System is intended to raise the situational awareness amongst stakeholders and raise the overall safety. It consists of LED variable message boards, central software and Graphical User Interface.
The primary purpose of the system is to enhance aviation safety by:
- reducing verbal communication;
- providing pilots with clear concise information;
- reducing congestion by removing personnel and equipment from the deicing area
