Our ideas for Object Monitor to enhance baggage handling business

It was not easy to develop Object Monitor as it is today. Working together at Amsterdam Schiphol airport made us aware on various important aspects of Object Monitor. Some of these requirements are highlighted here.

Safety at check-in desk

Baggage drop is a potentially dangerous area at an airport. Passengers and staff can easily access the conveyor belt at the check-in desk. They may accidentally enter the automated baggage handling area. These cases should be prevented as much as possible.

Baggage handling effciency

Automated baggage handling at Amsterdam Schiphol Airport

An automated baggage handling system (BHS) is a major investment for an airport. The baggage flow is unbelievably fast. The BHS should not be out of operation, not even for a few minutes. Any disturbance by accidents or deviating baggage must be avoided.

Management information

The response time should be short, when a disturbance threatens operating the automated baggage handling system. At the same time it is very important to get informed about the problem location, the cause of the alarm, etc. A real-time visual image of the spot is also very helpful. Data should remain available for evaluation purposes afterwards.

Automated camera detection

Affordable 3D-cameras may identify the dimensions of objects. The moving objects may be distinguished from the static background by image analysis. The objects may be classified into categories according to aviation standards. This approach opens the possibility to signal anomalous objects including people. Thresholds should be adjustable.

Customer service and support

The object monitor system should be rather easy to install and implement by qualified engineers already working at the airport. The same holds for configuration and maintenance of the equipment. Object monitor systems have to function when the conveyor belt is active and in use. The importance of offering adequate service and support is key.

Last but not least there should be a back-office with technical engineers. They should solve the hard problems, if any. They should also deduce major product improvements from hands-on experience. Future progress should be incubated.
