TO begin with – What is DORA?
DORA will be an information system that helps passengers cleverly optimise their travel time from point A to the airplane and from there to point B. Simply – from air passenger perspective – we will provide you an easy way to optimize your traveling experience! “All you need is DORA”
DORA – Door to Door Information for Airports and Airlines
Creating real-time routing service – to reduce travel time of air passengers
To ensure this, the DORA system will provide mobile, seamless, and time optimised route recommendations for the travels to the airport and time optimised routing within the airports, leading the passengers through terminals to the right security and departure gates. The DORA will integrate all necessary real time information on disruptions in the land transport environments and on incidents in the airport terminals to provide the fastest route alternatives, ensuring the accessibility of airport and airplane at any time in accordance with individual passengers’ requirements. The DORA system will be designed in a generic way, to ensure that it can be widely adopted independently on passengers and airports locations.
In the project, the DORA system will be implemented and tested in realistic environments involving cities of Berlin and Palma di Mallorca as well corresponding airports in both cities with involvement of at least 500 real end users – passengers – in the trials. To support the passengers’ route optimisation, the DORA project will investigate and design technologies for recognition of waiting queues and indoor location services in airports, which will be integrated into the DORA system and tested within the project trials.
DORA is a three years Research and Innovation action / project under the EU programme Horizon 2020 (Grant Agreement no. 635885, EC funding of 4,682,895€) started on 1 June 2015.
