China, on Feb. 6-7, 2021. Prior to that, the “all round package”
will be put in place and made ready in the Olympic ski
resort. In coming years, Prinoth will also introduce SNOW
HOW for optimal piste conditions, the highly regarded fleet
management system with Leica snow measurements. This
leading software within the sector should significantly increase
efficiency and economy, reduce fuel costs and thus assist the
Olympic organizers in running a trendsetting “Green Event.”
Further vehicles are projected for supply in 2021. Thus, the
existing fleet will be completed with the Leitwolf, Husky and
Bison models, and be ready for operation to groom one of the
most challenging routes in Olympic history. The organizers
were impressed not only by the efficient performance of the
engine, but also by the first-class extensions and accesso-ries,
such as the automatic winch, the Nordic Liner and the
Prinoth’s “line-up of achievements” in major sporting
events continues with this contract for Olympia 2022. The
company has already been responsible for piste preparation
at the Olympic Games in Lillehammer (1994), Nagano (1998),
Turin (2006), and Sochi (2014). In addition, the organizers of
the World Ski Championships in Åre, Sweden, and the Nordic
World Ski Championships in Antholz, Italy, and Seefeld,
Austria, relied on the performance capacity and dependability
of Leitwolf and company. In their Italian homeland, Prinoth
is awaiting the next major operation as an official partner at
the World Ski Championships in Cortina d’Ampezzo in 2021.
New product from Axess
New circumstances and conditions require new solutions.
This also applies to life in times of COVID-19. Axess has
PHOTO COURTESY OF AXESS
launched a new module for this purpose. By measuring body
temperature, it detects when a person has a fever and wheth-er
they are wearing a mouth-nose protector mask. Only then
will access be granted. This function is important for stadia,
museums, exhibition centers, leisure parks or swimming
pools, and allows event organizers and operators to reopen
their doors within the new legal requirements.
“Requests from international markets have prompted us to
act quickly here. We will be installing the first system soon,”
said Oliver Suter, CSO and board member of the company. He
was the driving force behind the project and, together with
the development team, able to implement this new product
in a very short time. In the future, the module will be inte-grated
into all product lines and supplemented with an ad-ditional
face recognition system.
Axess has been supplying contactless operating gates since
the beginning and developed this new application during
the eight weeks of the shutdown. Once again, the technology
forge is a trendsetter and one step ahead.
“This is possible because both software and hardware are
developed in-house, which allows us to react dynamically to
the market,” said Claudia Kopetzky, CMO of Axess AG and re-sponsible
for international marketing.
Apart from this new product, all Axess systems can be op-erated
without contact. The range of e-commerce products
allows bookings to be made from home. Tickets are issued at
the vending machines, which are also operating without any
contact to other people and 24-hours per day. Existing tickets
can be reloaded in the online shop. The use of RFID or NFC
technology allows entry without any further contact point.
Social distancing and safe lifestyle made easy.
