Handling of Air Baggage

Abstract [en]

The airport staff working with baggage handling have a tough job, lifting up to 15 tones/day per person. Every bag gets lifted manually 6 times on its way from check in to the baggage drop band, which is why the work is very repetitive and often leads to back, shoulder and other kinds of physical problems. My concept, the ABT (Autonomous Baggage Train), removes 4 of these manual lifting moments and also shortens the waiting time for the arriving passengers, reduces the wear on both baggage and the airport´s baggage bands and contributes to a safer working environment.
