SFO uses Omnivex Moxie digital signage software to power their interactive wayfinding touchscreens. The screens enable travellers to easily find where they need to go anywhere in the airport and the best route to get there, whether by walking or by taking the airport’s automated AirTrain. The touchscreens are location-smart and thereby predetermine appropriate destinations based on the passenger’s pre or post security location. The screens tie into other SFO systems allowing the maps to be updated in real-time.
