Avery Dennison announced that its RFID inlays have successfully passed specifications and system tests to meet performance requirements for the tagging of luggage and bags at airports, as established by the International Air Transport Association.
Avery Dennsion, through its partnership with Motorola and Print-O-Tape, will begin by supplying Hong Kong International Airport with AD-833 inlays for up to 70 million RFID enabled baggage tracking tags.
The AD-833 inlay can be read at virtually any angle, which enables better read capture rates in baggage applications, where there is little control over the orientation of a bag. With the use of RFID tags bad reads from damaged bar codes are a thing of the past, and costs involved with replacing, locating and delivering misplaced luggage are reduced.
With the use of RFID tags airports hope to provide better security for protecting passengers and crew members, reduce costs and improve customer satisfaction.
Recent studies have demonstrated that the deployment of RFID systems for bag tagging can provide a rapid return on investment by increasing accuracy and reliability of read rates and decreasing the amount of errors with routing and locating luggage pieces.
