Millions of pieces of luggage are misrouted every year, which means a lot of work and additional costs for the airlines. A new technology at the airport – and RFID tags attached to the suitcases – will change that.
The quality of the baggage tracking has increased greatly over the last few years. Nevertheless, airlines and airport operators are still faced with the task of handling the ever-increasing number of passengers and luggage without any losses, while at the same time meeting passengers’ expectations for transparent baggage tracking.
In this white paper, Kathrein Solutions would like to show possible actions which the companies involved have to take into account in order to implement the IATA R753 and, in particular, the UHF RFID use, as effectively as possible.
Cost-effective passive UHF RFID tags in combination with Kathrein’s high-performance hardware and the modular CrossTalk IoT software suite, which has already become standard in various markets, are the components of a mature and future-oriented baggage-tracking solution.
