IoT (Internet of Things) in Travel and Tourism - Thematic Research

According to Q1 2021 Consumer Survey, 85% of consumers were still either ‘extremely’, ‘quite’ or ‘slightly’ concerned about their health due to the pandemic.Internet of Things (IoT) technology can help to ease traveler concerns regarding wellbeing.

For example, wearable tech devices at airports and other transport terminals can allow travelers to practice correct social distancing and keep to other health and safety compliance parameters, which stems the spread of the virus and keeps travelers safe.Companies that are leading adopters of IoT may benefit from a quicker recovery as the world adapts to the ‘new normal’, such as Hilton.

Hilton’s ‘Connected Room’ technology allows guests to use the Hilton Honors app to manage most things they would traditionally have to do manually in a guest room. From controlling the temperature and lighting to the TV and window coverings, the IoT technology allows guests to reduce the number of times they have to touch surfaces that may be contaminated.

Key Highlights
- IoT is the key technological point for the development of smart cities. By using this technology to gather urban data and improve performance and management, city destinations can rapidly improve performance in relation to sustainability. Examples related to tourism include smart solutions for parking and highway speed controls, which reduces pollution. In terms of social impacts, IoT can reduce overcrowding within cities through the redirection of tourist flows, this can be done through reactive digital signage. This can reduce annoyance amongst the host community within a destination and create a more harmonious relationship between locals and tourists.
- IoT in travel and tourism can create personalized experiences in two main ways: by enabling travelers to control more appliances or services through a centralized device, such as a tablet or mobile application; or by companies storing data gathered from IoT enabled devices to create targeted personalized marketing campaigns or by remembering their preferences for return visits. For example, a traveler may return to the same hotel every winter. Because the hotel company uses a smart thermostat, it could set the heating to the customer’s preferred temperature when they return, which it remembered from last year. This kind of small, personalized service could go a long way for many customers, especially in the luxury market where attention to small details is greater than in the midscale or budget segments.
- IoT can also elevate passenger experiences. For example, services can be priced differently for different travelers as per the frequency of their traveling, helping to create loyalty schemes. Rail operators can benefit greatly from passenger loyalty using IoT systems to understand customer experience history and make improvements for a more comfortable and convenient journey in the future.
