Smart Car Boot for baggage check-in

Abstract

Existing centralized flight baggage check-in process at the airport is cumbersome both for travellers and airline. Smart Car boot/trunk technology ("patent pending") allows passenger to perform baggage check-in at their door steps. The car boot connected to airline/airport systems remotely performs baggage check-in. The boot/trunk connected in real time to airline/airport baggage handling and departure control systems ensures remote management, tracking and control. A mobile application available with passengers perform remote baggage check in and interacts with smart car boot via the Storage i cloud. Storage i is working with Emirates airline to pilot the technology via its aviation incubator "Intelak" which is co-founded by Emirates Airline, GE, Etisalat and Dnata.
