Siemens AG (SIE.XE) said Thursday it has agreed on a strategic partnership for digitalization with Munich Airport in order to work on the airport's digital future with more partners.

Siemens said that over the coming years, the partners want to use data analytics, the Internet of Things, technologies and artificial intelligence to improve the energy efficiency of airport buildings and the logistics of the baggage-handling system.

To meet these goals, Siemens said it is becoming a developmental partner for LabCampus, the major project for the airport's digital future. For the digital technologies, Siemens is using MindSphere, its open, cloud-based operating system for the Internet of Things.
