ABU DHABI AIRPORT, UAE

ABU DHABI, UAE

WE HELPED ABU DHABI MAKE THE SHIFT TOWARDS BECOMING A WORTHWHILE PART OF A PASSENGER’S JOURNEY

THE CHALLENGE

Airports are evolving. Whether it be a regular commute, a well-planned trip or a spontaneous getaway, people expect an experience from the minute they start their journey. Abu Dhabi recognised this and sought to create an enjoyable travelling experience, rooted in sustainability that their passengers would remember.

THE SOLUTION

With the simple act of a footstep, Pavegen has allowed visitors to be part of an entirely new experience that starts with them. Alongside sustainable infrastructure leaders, Masdar City, Pavegen constructed a 16-metre clean energy generating walkway in a busy through terminal. Utilising the high footfall of the terminal, visitors can now spark an interactive light sequence with their very own steps as well as live data screens, displaying energy and footfall analytics in real time. Footfall also initiates an aircraft taking flight, corresponding with the energy levels generated on the walkway- the more footsteps, the higher the aircraft will fly!
