The future of baggage is biometric
Each image set becomes a virtual tag, a digital fingerprint that holds the baggage data.
Data by design
Our data is extracted from an image. This can be used to track the bag journey, without the need for any PIl data.
Pictures don't lie
An image offers evidence of what bag has been checked in, where and in what condition helping to reduce fraud.
Count the cost
At 1c per bag, and no maior infrastructure changes, the cost savings just keep stacking up.
Solutions for every part of the baggage journey
Happy passengers become loyal customers
BagsID is a data-driven SaaS network offering solutions for airports, airlines, partners and ground handlers. Through baggage identification, image-based data extraction, collection and enrichment connected to a global data warehouse, our easy-to-use interface allows data transfer and connectivity valuable to airlines, airports, ground handlers, and service providers. And we're just getting started.
Capturing images and valuable data
Multiple uses with multiple benefits
Whether you represent an airport, airline or system integrator, the BagsID Network can provide valuable data to improve your operations. Better yet, it is an easy add-on for your existing infrastructure, so there’s practically no disruption.
The world's smartest airports are becoming BagsID enabled. Gathering data via BagsID certified camera images, to vastly improve the performance of their operations, it is the first step in creating a sustainable and seamless passenger experience.
BagsID is the new standard in baggage recognition for airlines. Images and data will replace paper-based systems, allowing airlines to become more agile, reduce cost, increase revenue and help the environment.
Working closely with our partners is paramount, and a privilege. Our mission is to empower our partners with our baggage biometric technology, to enable them to innovate and succeed.
For ground handlers
Ground handling companies are the vital link between airlines and airports. BagsID helps bridge the gap and creates a cohesive worldwide image-based system that does not affect existing infrastructure.
Tech and capabilities
Exciting technology for the future of baggage
We believe computer vision, data and baggage biometrics will be the leading technology change in the way baggage handling is approached and delivered. BagsID is designed to streamline and simplify processes while opening up a wealth of opportunities. Using deep learning we allow you to understand baggage trends though data. Our team of data scientists work to improve how airlines and airports offer baggage handling services, while reducing costs and increasing profitability.
Data can be extracted from images throughout a single bag journey and its entire lifecycle.
Starting at 1c per bag versus 7c per barcode, we're committed to improving your bottom line.
Increase ancillary revenue by loading aircraft more efficiently and increasing space for paid cargo.
Complies with IATA Resolution 753 and IACO Annex 17 and delivers a more accurate solution than barcodes.
Making a world of difference
Creating a sustainable baggage future
Our solution helps reduce the number of baggage containers per flight using data to predict, analyse and smart-sort each container. With more space for additional cargo, and the ability to forecast fuel loads more efficiently, BagsID saves money as well as the environment.
As aviation works towards net zero emissions by 2050, we have the sustainable baggage solution the industry needs.
Without the need for attached tags, our solution reduces waste and carbon footprint.
Have questions? We have answers
Currently physical paper / plastic baggage tags are generated by the airline DCS and placed on the bag at check-in. In the new world, the DCS will still generate a license plate number, but no physical tag will be printed. Instead, an image of the bag will be captured, and the now virtual licence plate number will be attached to this image. In addition to the license plate number, other properties can be added to the virtual tag – for example, heavy, fragile, priority and limited release.
By capturing multiple images of bags at point of acceptance, whether that be check-in or home pick-up and at point of delivery at the arrival carousel or home delivery, it is far easier for airlines and ground handlers to assess whether a bag has been damaged en-route or whether the passenger is attempting to commit fraud.
Our cameras capture images of the bag from multiple angles. We are able to see if a bag has been tampered with en-route, and by comparing against manufacturer specifications we will be able to highlight if a bag has been modified in any way. This detail adds an extra level of security on top of current baggage screening methods
Whilst we firmly believe in moving towards a tag-less future, we acknowledge that there are multiple benefits that can be realised for airports, airlines, ground handlers who are still using physical tags, whether that be traditional paper or RFID tags. Both technologies complement each other, and whilst RFID may be used for tracking, imagery and the associated data can be used for identifying tag-less bags, dimensioning, damage claims and baggage trends, to name a few.
Absolutely! With our dimensioning capabilities, we can create alerts if the dimensions exceed the airline’s policy. We can also build up a profile of all carry-on bags planned for travel and pass this information on to airlines for their own planning - whether that be sharing the information with airport security volumes of carry-on baggage planned, or alerting the passenger if the bag needs to be stowed under the seat if they're on a busy flight.
