The future of travel technology
Technology has transformed the way we view different things in our lives. A few decades ago, people used to communicate with each other through letters which would sometimes take months. Now, we can send a text message to our employees or loved ones within a matter of a few seconds. A major part of our lives is traveling, along with the rest of the things, technology has completely transformed that part of our lives as well. We, however, have benefitted from the change that has been resulted by technological advancements because of the high levels of personalization and convenience offered to us.
Artificial intelligence has started to play an extremely important role in our lives especially when it comes to traveling. Almost a decade ago, the concept of artificial intelligence and the usage of robotics in the travel industry seemed to be extremely bizarre, unrealistic and futuristic but nowadays, different airports and airlines have started to incorporate this particular concept within their organizations and have also started seeking many benefits out of it. It is, however, a little expensive and requires a large amount of initial investment but the benefits that different organizations are enjoying by employing them completely cover up the initial cost that they had to pay in the form of investment. When we talk about traveling, one of the biggest barriers that are usually faced by people is the language barrier and robotics have made it easy for people to overcome this particular barrier. Moreover, these robots also help to cut down the cost of the organization, let it be an airport or an airline, because they do not have to pay more people to do that particular job. Schiphol airport and Geneva airport have already introduced robotics into their systems and have greatly benefitted from them. These robots help in guiding people about the flights, recognize the emotions of the customers and are designed in a way to cope up with any unexpected situation that may arise.
One of the most common complaints that people nowadays have is the inconvenience that they have to face when they lose or misplace their luggage. But thanks to all the technological advances, a very good solution to this problem has also been generated. Smart baggage solutions will not only help the travelers with their luggage and in helping them avoid all the inconvenience that they might have to face but it will also help the airports with saving a lot of money and time. The airport staff that gets busy is helping the traveler find their luggage might save all the time and use it in assisting other travelers who might be facing even bigger inconveniences. The new biometric enabled bag drop can prove to be an extremely useful device for people who travel frequently and are always on the go.
Someone who is a big fan of traveling is also likely to be a big fan of photography and capturing different moments for them to enjoy later. During the past few years, people have started using drones to help them capture all the moments that they enjoy so that they can live in those moments later on. Drones have played a big role in traveling and photography they have helped the travel industry to grow even more. That is because people share almost everything on their social media accounts such as Facebook and Instagram, and esthetically appealing pictures attract more people to that particular destination where the picture was originally captured. This is an advantage for the travel agencies as it helps them to generate more business and earn more revenues.
The concept of virtual reality is another interesting concept that has risen over the past few years. It helps the potential traveler to experience the landscape and the history of a particular destination from the ease of their living rooms. Not only travel agencies have benefitted from them but many other organizations have also benefitted from them through the art of providing the demanded experience and through the art of story-telling. Virtual reality is a great way through which travel agencies can work more efficiently by planning the trip of their clients in a better way, this will not only satisfy the client and increase the levels of customer loyalty but it will also help the travel agencies to generate more business. Other organizations in different sectors have also started to adopt the concept of virtual reality by creating websites that provide 360-degree video and photography.
Overall, technology has played a major role in the travel industries all over the world. With the continuous discoveries that are being made, the level of technological advancements is also increasing day by day. Thanks to the technological advancements in the travel industries globally, the travel sector has profited a lot and is continuously profiting from it.
