A patent application (Publication Number: US20240017848A1) describes a cabin for an aircraft equipped with a monitoring assembly to ensure passenger safety and security. The cabin includes multiple monitored regions, each with designated output devices that can signal authorization or prohibition regarding changes in the position or presence of individuals within these regions. The monitoring assembly consists of sensor devices that detect the presence and position of individuals, allowing for real-time monitoring and control of passenger movements within the cabin. Additionally, an evaluation device calculates distances between individuals in different monitored regions, enabling precise control over the authorization signals issued by the output devices.

Furthermore, the patent application details the integration of the monitoring assembly with a control device and evaluation device, which can be connected to external devices for data transmission. The system is designed to display seat occupancy and calculated distances on a computer screen, providing a comprehensive overview of passenger movements within the cabin. The monitoring assembly also includes a traffic light-like output device that visually indicates authorization or prohibition signals based on the calculated distances between individuals in different regions. Overall, the patent application outlines a sophisticated monitoring system for aircraft cabins that enhances passenger safety and security through real-time monitoring and control mechanisms.
