Abstract

The Guided Passenger Reduction of turnaround times by usage of printed OLEDs integrated into parts of an aircraft This article suggests a guiding system for passengers, where the seats and bin spaces are personalized. In general, the idea suggests a printed OLED layer for the usage in an aircraft, preferably in a seat or a hat rack. This leads to several integrated functions and provides us with the following advantages: - Personalization of seats and hat rack spaces. By marking the seat or hat racks in the above described manner, passengers' names can easily be adapted to each new flight by OLED being integrated into seats or hat racks via the latest passenger list. - Guidance of passengers via printed OLEDs on seats: Enabling to rapidly finding his/her seat. - Improvement of visibility of seat number markings: OLEDs being integrated into e.g. a seat headrest or on an hat rack, are not visually obscured such as seat number markings underneath the Passenger Service Units. - Improvement of visibility in general: OLEDs have a good visibility and are not dependent from proper light conditions - Energy efficiency: OLEDs consume very little energy - Minimization of risk that passenger sits on wrong seat - Provision of information about spare place for luggage
