The ACI Asia-Pacific General Assembly, held in Doha, Qatar, 10th-12th April 2017, will see BEUMER Group (Stand 5) host live and virtual reality (VR) demonstrations of next-gen baggage handling technologies.
The VR tour will allow delegates to experience the CrisBag tote-based baggage handling system through a VR headset. This will allow delegates to see why many airports consider this to be the future of high speed, high efficiency baggage handling.
BEUMER Group will also enable delegates to interact with a live demonstration of a Video Coding System (VCS). This system combines cameras installed in the sortation system, with controls from BEUMER Group’s Airport Software Suite, to eliminate the need to divert bags with no-read tags to a Manual Encoding Station (MES).
The VCS technology allows the bag to remain on the sorter whilst sending an image of the tag to an operator for remote encoding at a workstation or via a tablet. The additional benefits of the VCS, including increased flexibility during peak coding periods, have been outlined in a recent BEUMER Group White Paper.
Klaus Schäfer, Managing Director, BEUMER Group A/S, commented: “The VCS is an important tool to help hub airports to improve their baggage transfer service by reducing the number of mishandled bags. This is one of the areas that can have a significant impact on transfer passenger satisfaction and airport ratings in general.”
