Latest Baggage Handling Technology in VR
At the British-Irish Airports Expo, UK-based BEUMER Group asked spectators to have a virtual-reality tour of an advanced CrisBag® tote-based baggage handling system.
Participants were also asked to join a hands-on demonstration of a video coding systsem to to optimize the baggage handling process for no-read labels on transfer baggage. Guests also got the chance to hear more about BEUMER Group’s Whitepaper on IATA Resolution 753 in a sit-down discussion with the experts behind it.

“Future baggage handling systems must be capable of transporting and sorting an extremely wide portfolio of baggage products and must also feature increased security to meet the key requirement to ‘track & trace’ all baggage items handled within the system,” states Peter Gilks, Managing Director, BEUMER Group UK’s Airports Division. “The new IATA Resolution 753 requires all IATA airports to work with their partner airlines and ground handling companies in assessing possible upgrades in order to comply with this new regulation. As the BEUMER Group Whitepaper explains, if an upgrade is required, this can also be seen as an opportunity for all stakeholders to drive down costs by accessing the new levels of efficiency offered by modern baggage handling equipment and controls.”
This new virtual-reality luggage handling system is often tagged the system of the future by many airports, and the tour showed exactly that. By utilizing the latest Oculus Rift technology viewers, BEUMER Group has developed a virtual reality experience of being “inside the system” to experience first-hand the power of a high-speed baggage handling system.
A brief recap of the main highlights are below:
