Airbus develops “Find My Suitcase” app powered by RFID

Airbus is one of the original pioneers of RFID technology. The company’s parent, European Aeronautic Defense and Space Co. (EADS), has at least 65 ongoing RFID projects.

While most of the Airbus deployments are designed to help the company and its airline partners operate more efficiently, Airbus is trying to improve the customer experience as well. At this week’s Airbus Innovation Days 2013 in Paris, the company unveiled RFID-enabled luggage that interacts with an iPhone to help find misplaced bags.

According to the Australian Business Traveler, the bags are still in the developmental stages but are estimated to cost only about 20 percent more than traditional bags — a small price to pay to avoid losing the contents of your luggage. Initial indications are that Airbus may license the technology to airports and airlines.

Bag2Go has been developed in partnership with mobile carrier T-Mobile and German luggage maker Rimowa.

Here’s an excerpt from the article in Australian Business Traveler:

An RFID chip inside the bag lets it work with the increasing number of automated airport and airline baggage-handling systems which can ‘pair’ smartchipped bagtags with your itinerary and frequent flyer number.

A barcode on the bag’s trip-specific label syncs it against your iPhone and can be passed on to your airline booking.

Each Bag2Go also relies on other location-based technologies such as GPS and a 2G-based cellular phone system to track the luggage along its route, including the iPhone app’s ‘Find My Bag’ feature to locate bags that have gone missing in action.
