Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Baggage Handling System At Gatwick Airport 1. Baggage Deposition 2. Check in When you check in your bag it will be given a barcode sticker which will be read by the system. The barcode includes all the information about your flight including any terminals or transfers that will be used or that will happen. This will be good because it will help the baggage move through the maze of conveyor belts in security and the baggage handlers monitoring the baggages wont have to worry as much due to how secure and accurate the system will be. 3. First Scan First of all you make your way and park at the airport and then make your way to the check in counter.This will essentiallybe faster as the new system works faster than the old one. After the check-in desk the baggage is sent to the first scan session. an array of scanners are placed 360 degrees around the baggage making the scanning much more accurate. This scan means the system registers the baggage's information for further use. Any luggage not scanned will be manually scanned by a baggage handler. The baggage handler will be able to monitor this scanning on the control unit computers. This is significantly better as the fluidity of the system is faster decreasing delays significantly. This is the most important part of the system. Knowing on which conveyors it needs to go the system makes sure the baggage is moved along them appropriately using these systems in the unit. The systems make it automatic and less manual work is needed. Baggage handlers therefore monitor the baggage system on a control unit being their computer to very the movement is done accordingly. The baggage ends its journey to the plane and to the destination! 4. Conveying 1. Pusher:This conveyor can move the bag onto specific routes by pushing stopping bags onto different conveyor units. 2. Orientation:Using cameras that detect the bag's destination, wheels are used to orientate the bag in order to send it on the right way. 3. DCVsUsing RFIDs for location and destination purposes, Destination coded vehicles move baggage from and to different terminals they also load and unload automatically. Their journey is automatic.
