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.
