Measurement and position determination of baggage on baggage handling systems

For smooth operation of baggage handling systems, it is important to exactly determine the dimensions of the baggage and its position on the conveyor belt. This protects system parts, such as x-ray devices, from damage and optimizes the automated flight make-up process. The VMS6x00/7x00 track and trace system measures the baggage while it runs through the conveyor system. This ensure optimal availability of the baggage handling system and ensure the best-possible use of the ULD storage room. Using the collected data, downstream processes in baggage handling can also be controlled, e.g. automatic flight make-up or handover of baggage to the package conveyor.
