Transavia to save fuel by determining aircraft weight using deep learning, infrared

    Transavia partnered (18-Jul-2019) with TU Delft and Bit to carry out R&D projects aimed at increasing sustainability in flight operations. One element under examination is accurately determining the full payload of an aircraft after boarding using deep learning and infrared technology. Using this data, pilots could calculate the optimal altitude and speed required to minimise fuel consumption. [more – original PR – Dutch]
