Deerns designed the Advanced Surface Movement Guidance Control System (A-SMGCS) as part of the Airport Collaborative Decision-Making system for a newly planned large international airport. This includes a system of green LED lights along the taxiway that show the optimal route for aircraft to arrive at the gate, taking all other aircraft movements into account. The Advanced Visual Docking Guidance System (A-VDGS) doubles up as a display, showing countdown time and milestones for the ground crew, ensuring that everything from connecting the bridge to refuelling is ready to go the moment an aircraft arrives at the gate so that up to 50 million passengers a year will never have to wait long.
