Passenger boarding bridge and aircraft docking system
Passenger boarding bridge and aircraft docking guidance system – In perfect harmony
Sensors from SICK are even used in the moving elements of passenger boarding bridges. The rotational movement of the passenger boarding bridge drive unit is monitored, as is the rotational movement of the gangway cab rotation system. This all serves to ensure that docking between the airplane, which has been perfectly parked with the help of the aircraft docking guidance system, and the passenger boarding bridge goes without a hitch.
