Machine learning approach to predict aircraft boarding

Machine learning approach to predict aircraft boarding

Since no operational data of the specific passenger behavior is available, we used a reliable, validated boarding simulation environment to provide data about the aircraft boarding events. First predictions show that uni-variate input (seat load progress) prod...
