RFID can help airlines to ensure that the right bags are placed on the right plane at the right time by enabling positive identification of each and every bag prior to placing it on the conveyor for loading, without requiring any action at all from baggage handlers out on the tarmac. A mobile RFID reader, can be placed on the end of the conveyor, and baggage handlers armed with a mobile hand-held computer can receive an instant alert if a bag destined for another flight is identified. In this paper a preliminary study on a distributed, scalable system for RFID tracking and monitoring of baggages is presented.

Abstract

RFID can help airlines to ensure that the right bags are placed on the right plane at the right time by enabling positive identification of each and every bag prior to placing it on the conveyor for loading, without requiring any action at all from baggage handlers out on the tarmac. A mobile RFID reader, can be placed on the end of the conveyor, and baggage handlers armed with a mobile hand-held computer can receive an instant alert if a bag destined for another flight is identified. In this paper a preliminary study on a distributed, scalable system for RFID tracking and monitoring of baggages is presented. This system represents a data warehouse solution for storing and analysing spatio-temporal RFID baggage tracking data. Simulations results show the read rate of the departure baggage in an environment in which there is an RFID system.
