‘Follow the greens': offering automated airport surface guidance around the clock

September 7, 2022

Maintaining efficient and predictable aircraft movement between stand to runway in all weather conditions is a challenge at busy airports, but there are tools available which can help to guide aircraft safely around the airfield. The ‘follow the greens’ solution provides clearances, confirmed by the tower controller, and illuminates the taxiway centreline lights to a specified distance ahead of the aircraft under guidance by switching them on and off automatically, and also, where applicable, switching stop bars on and off automatically. The airfield lighting guidance is available on a 24/7 basis in all weather conditions and on the entire movement area. Since the airfield ground lighting technology is expensive, the candidate solution applies predominantly to larger airports.
