A research team of proficient students and faculty at Lovely Professional University has developed a smart system that can help prevent baggage theft and facilitate hassle-free collection of luggage at Airports. Based on the Passenger Database Creation Technology and Technology for Logistics, this creation is set to beat the trouble on the Airport.
According to a report by the aviation IT specialist, SITA, every minute 40 bags get mishandled worldwide. In 2018, that amounted to more than 24.8 million mishandled bags, costing the air transport industry USD 2.4 billion, researchers said.
LPU researchers said the system will be placed at the conveyer belt where the associated display board will indicate the estimated time of arrival (ETA) of baggage with passenger details. The passenger can come forward as per the ETA to collect the luggage and exit from the airport door.
