Members of the CMU Transportation Club took an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the xBridge Innovation Center at Pittsburgh International Airport. This technology center is a test bed for new tech that can benefit the airport, airline partners, and air travelers. Members of the transportation club were able to see a remote-controlled vehicle that may be ultimately utilized to move passengers around the airport, algae which can filter air throughout the interior, and a delivery robot which could help facilitate the movement of goods through security. The students were also able to learn more about construction of a new terminal at the airport, and how this will help facilitate the travel of passengers arriving and departing from Pittsburgh.
