BEUMER Group UK invites delegates at British-Irish Airports Expo to experience a virtual-reality tour of an advanced CrisBag® tote-based baggage handling system. In addition, delegates will be invited to participate in a hands-on demonstration of a Video Coding System to optimise the baggage handling process for no-read labels on transfer baggage. Delegates will also be able to meet the experts behind BEUMER Group’s recent Whitepaper on IATA Resolution 753.
“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.”
The virtual-reality tour of a CrisBag® tote-based baggage handling system will show why many airports consider this the system of the future. By use of the latest Oculus Rift technology viewers, BEUMER Group has created a virtual reality experience of being “inside the system” to experience first-hand the power of a high-speed baggage handling system.
