How Tech Has Been Revving Up The Engine Of The Aviation Industry
Exhibit|Anniversary Issue 2020
Technology has been central to the growth of aviation, where growing numbers and innovations have in the past few years changed the face of the airline industry for good.
Aditya Anand
But just as 2020 has been the worst year the industry could have imagined; it could well prove to be that year where the industry takes a leap in putting technology to use. These pandemic times could well make it the best time yet to accelerate deploying robust technology in the business to bring about cost efficiencies, improve productivity, introduce automation and digitisation, streamline operations and be better prepared for when the demand does return with time.

One such plan in the pipeline for sometime is One ID, a paperless solution that the International Air Travel Association (IATA) has been working on. A biometric recognition driven model, One ID gives passengers an opportunity to further streamline their journey with a document-free process based on identity management. This works perfectly in creating a situation where person-to-person interaction is near a zero, best suiting the present requirements of maintaining minimum contact points for a traveller.

HYPERX CLOUD STINGER CORE AN IMMERSION INTO GAMING, WIRELESSLY!

THE HEADSETS COST AROUND ₹10,000, MAKING THEM ONE HELL OF A BIRTHDAY PRESENT FOR A KID. BUT IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE OLDER GUYS LOOKING FOR A GOOD HEADSET FOR YOURSELF, THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST VALUE FOR MONEY DEALS. THE HEADPHONES DO NOT HAVE A 3.5MM JACK DUE TO WHICH THEY CANNOT BE CONNECTED TO SMARTPHONES. BUT, THEY ARE NOT MEANT TO ANYWAY. THEY ALSO OFFER A BATTERY LIFE OF APPROXIMATELY 17 HOURS ON A FULL CHARGE, WHICH WAS MORE THAN MY CAPACITY TO PLAY GAMES IN A DAY. CHARGING CAN EASILY BE DONE VIA A USB-C PORT, WHICH ALSO MAKES IT LESS OF A HASSLE. THE HEADPHONES ARE ALSO CHARGED QUICKLY AND THOUGH I DIDN’T TIME IT PRECISELY, I KNEW THE HEADPHONES WERE READY TO PLAY GAMES MUCH BEFORE I WAS. OVERALL, THE HYPERX CLOUD STINGER CORE HEADPHONES ARE MADE FOR GAMERS AND SERVE THEIR PURPOSE PERFECTLY.
