Fast. Flexible. First.

Meet the latest advancement in gateway technology: Intellidock by airport equipment

The patented Intellidock system is a fully-automated passenger boarding bridge docking solution comprising a sensor module fitted to a bridge cabin and connected to a remote intelligent PLC system.

We engineered Intellidock from the ground up to work with any existing passenger boarding bridge and all major aircraft in service today.

How It Works

INTELLIDOCK IS WHERE CUTTING-EDGE ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY COMBINE FOR A SIMPLE SOLUTION.

1. AIRCRAFT ARRIVES AT AEROBRIDGE

  • Intellidock is always at the ready, waiting for an approaching aircraft.

  • As soon as an aircraft arrives Intellidock learns the aircraft and its expected location.

2. bridge MOVES INTO POSITION

  • Intellidock scans the aircraft door to confirm that the situation matches expectations before commencing any movement. 
  • Intellidock automatically drives the passenger boarding bridge into its initial position about two metres from the aircraft door.

3. bridge docks to aircraft

  • Intellidock sensors work to determine the precise position of the aircraft door and lock onto it — even if the door is obscured from view. 

  • Intellidock drives the passenger boarding bridge cabin toward the aircraft door,  constantly adjusting height, lateral movement and rotation to ensure a perfect docking alignment with the aircraft door.

An aircraft docked completely automatically by Intellidock. An industry first.

How it works

Icon-Puzzle.png

fits any existing passenger boarding bridge

Intellidock is designed to be fitted to and integrate with any existing passenger boarding bridge setup.

Icon-Time.png

improve turnaround times

Intellidock is always on time and has no sick days. Turn around an aircraft more quickly without reliance on human crew to take the controls.

remote monitoring and control

Any number of Intellidock installations throughout an airport can be monitored and controlled remotely by a central control desk. Intellidock integrates smoothly with Airport Equipment's Intelligate system.

Icon-Guidance.png

no reliance on guidance systems

Intellidock is self-reliant solution that uses its own advanced engineering and technology to be on target every time. It does not require any other guidance systems — such as AVDGS — to function.

reduce risk of damage

Intellidock eliminates human error
to reduce the risk of damage to aircraft and apron equipment. A remote operator can manually confirm each docking sequence and take the controls at any time.

INCREASED cabin SPACE

With Intellidock handling everything remotely, the traditional operator control station can be removed from an passenger boarding bridge cabin, freeing up space for passengers and flight crew.
