Energy efficient baggage handling systems

Baggage handling systems may use up to 40% of the energy used at airports. It is therefore very important that these system function as efficient as possible. This project concerns the design and operation of baggage handling equipment and systems and the selection of “green” components and equipment.

Self-service baggage pick-up systems

Many airports around the world have self-service check-in facilities that passengers can use to check in their baggage. Upon arrival at the destination airport however, passengers still have to use carousels to pick-up their luggage. This is not secure and can be time consuming. Therefore, there is a need for systems that allow passengers to pick up their luggage at the location and the time of their choice. This research project is about designing systems that allow passengers to pick-up their luggage at any time and any location that is available.
