Digital Binocular Display Aiport Information As A Digital Overlay

The Observation Dock B is a popular sightseeing spot at Zurich airport. The 250-meter long open-air observation deck was recently equipped with a pair of Airport Scopes that allow visitors to look through and reveal real-time infographics.

The digital binocular retrieves data from airplanes and airport buildings and displays information as a graphic overlay. The augmented reality device is able to detect the exact position of airplanes by analyzing real-time data from the control tower and reveal the plane’s carrier, type, destination or point of origin.
