Lost or Stolen Luggage at the Airport ~ RFID to the Rescue
Have you ever been the victim of lost or stolen luggage at the airport? ReboundTAG, based in the United Kingdom, has developed a new solution that will focus on preventing baggage theft or loss with the use of RFID technology.
Evidently, the permanent RFID tag enables luggage to be quickly and easily identified by the airlines and their personnel. Dubbed the Microchip Bag Tag, each tag is embedded with ReboundTAG’s ID and with 128 bits of space for airports and airlines to use with their own RFID sytems.
Additionally, if there is an airline that does not have RFID, there is a printed bar code that airlines will have the ability to scan.
In the event that your luggage is determined missing, the printed number can also be entered in at the ReboundTAG’s website. When the belongings have been found, the person will be notified with an automated SMS message.
