Overview

Background & Policy context

There are a number of issues related to the management and security of passenger and baggage transport. In order to improve baggage security one must be able to reliably identify and track each item. The latter two are the most critical aspects which can affect baggage security during transport.

Objectives

This project aimed at locating and tracking luggage items through the introduction of smart systems into the items themselves. This involved the inclusion of smart remotely readable luggage tags into the suitcase at the manufacturing (injection moulding) stage.

Methodology

The project’s main stages were:

  1. Development of a novel kind of “intelligent” suitcase, including an integrated solution with ID, sensor and communications capabilities.
  2. Development of a baggage tracking and management system.
  3. The final phase of the project consisted of pilot tests to be run at Portuguese airports, which will serve as rigorous tests of the system resulting from the very high standards required of systems installed in these locations.
