Elenium Automation receives Frost & Sullivan award
Elenium Automation has received the Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Technology Innovation Leadership Award for its airport safety technology.
The announcement was made at the FTE Virtual Expo event, at which Elenium was awarded for a touchless vital sign detection solution that the company has developed to reduce contact in airports in wake of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The best practice award addresses three key strategic areas impacting the airline and airport industry: geopolitical chaos, disruptive technologies, and internal challenges.
According to Frost & Sullivan, Elenium won the award because it performed consistently across these three areas.
“The robust touchless technology behind Elenium’s systems became and remains a prominent innovation in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic,” explained Steven Lopez, Best Practices Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “Elenium listened to the feedback from airports regarding the virus and immediately focused on providing solutions that would help stop the spread in airports and identify persons who could potentially show flu-like temperatures.”
