Chengdu Tianfu Bosch Airport

Rated as China's New Mega-Airport, Chengdu Tianfu International has relied on the technology of Bosch with the installation of 1.000 panoramic cameras and 9.000 speakers for the public address system and voice alarm.

The goal of the Bosch project for the new Chinese mega-airport Chengdu Tianfu International is to ensure the safety of passengers and facility personnel, in addition to improving comfort and ease of use for travelers on their tour.

Located in The Chinese Province of Sichuan, Chengdu Tianfu International, is at the service of this emerging city for trade, culture and finance, and is forecast to be the third busiest for air traffic after Beijing and Shanghai.

The installation of audio and video technology of Bosch adapted according to the special architectural requirements of the airport complex, which was inaugurated last June, including two terminal buildings that reference the ancient Golden Sun Bird totem found in 2001 in the Jinsha ruins of Chengdu City.

Due to the unique design of these buildings, with very high ceilings, 'standard' or more traditional security cameras were not appropriate for installation, as the image quality would not be good and would produce a poor viewing angle.

Chengdu Tianfu Bosch AirportThe solution has been Bosch panoramic cameras Flexidome, which were integrated into the interior design of the airport building, were installed on the walls or hidden in information panels without problems.

Each panoramic device is capable of monitoring a semicircular area with a radius of 25 Meters, with a detection range of that same distance and with a viewing angle of 180º. This allowed the airport to install far fewer cameras., reducing the total number by a 75%, of 4.000 standard equipment for a typical project of this scale to 1.000 panoramic cameras, also saving wiring and assembly costs.

In addition, Bosch Flexidome panoramic cameras use only one lens, which improves brightness, color and clarity, compared to other panoramic devices on the market, who usually use four lenses, which reduces image quality.

The precision tracking capabilities and high-quality video transmission of these panoramic security equipment also free up human resources for the airport and allow incidents or events to be monitored without additional personnel on the ground..

In the flight area, the airport has installed four Dinion IP cameras with 4K resolution to monitor the track. As this area is very extensive, the option has been to use an assembly software to combine the images of these four cameras and achieve a complete image covering the entire track, allowing Chengdu Tianfu to monitor the entire take-off and landing process.

Customer experience with intelligible acoustics

As the interiors of the terminal buildings feature many glass surfaces that cause sound reflections, Chengdu Tianfu needed to determine how to offer a high level of word intelligibility in his messages with minimal distortion., no matter where passengers are located.

The design team ran acoustic simulation software to determine how many speakers were needed to cover the terminal areas., as well as the location of the audio arrays.

Chengdu Tianfu Bosch AirportFor flight announcements, as well as for voice alarm and evacuation more than 9.000 Speakers, covering seven hundred transmission zones and integrating through a Praesideo system by Bosch, ensuring passengers can clearly hear announcements throughout the terminal.

In addition, announcements can be accurately and clearly conveyed to passengers traveling from other areas of the airport complex. Specifically,, the voice and public address system Bosch Praesensa deployed in the adjoining hotel has been integrated with the rest of the facility, so passengers can be alerted to ongoing airport events.

As part of the project, Bosch has also provided the wireless conferencing system Dicentis for adjacent airport offices.
