The internet of things is helping to improve fuel efficiency in airplanes. The technology and manufacturing firm, GE Aviation has recently developed new devices that can monitor the energy usage of auxiliary power units. These new devices can record and then analyze data such as the weather, terrain conditions, flight routes and airplane trajectory. It can then display this data in real time on an energy and fuel efficiency dashboard that will show how efficient the airplane is running.
One airline has already decided to use GE Aviation’s new technology in its airplanes. AirAsia has recently installed the GE technology and is already reaping benefits that include cost savings and less pollution. Expect more companies to use this or similar technologies in the future as firms try to reduce costs and limit their environmental impact.
