Robotics and automation are the two main aspects that the program will focus on. Cleaning robots will be deployed to clean the airport terminal to increase productivity and manage scarce manpower resources at the airport.

As part of the program, the airport has also installed cameras and sensors at one of the two taxi queues at Terminal Three to track the number of passengers in queue and their estimated waiting times.

According to local media, the CAG will explore the possibility to capture consumer analytics.

This is to better understand travelers' habits and preferences, thereby strengthening the airport's lifestyle product offerings.
