Efficiency in airport operations.
At inter airport South East Asia SICK exhibits a track and trace system for automatic reading of IATA luggage tags in baggage handling systems and displays the new Aircraft Protection System (APS) to avoid collisions between the aircraft and airport infrastructure. Designed as a hybrid solution, the track and trace system is a prime example of three types of technologies – laser scanners, cameras and RFID – working in perfect harmony for reliable identification and decoding the IATA bar code used in baggage transportation systems. The APS is designed for cost-effective retrofitting on aircraft tractors. The system provides the tractor driver with assistance during pushback, maintenance and maneuver towing. The display shows all the obstacles that are in the vicinity of the aircraft. In the event that an obstacle is detected within the aircraft‘s towing corridor, the driver receives an audible and visual warning so that the aircraft tractor can be stopped in order to avoid a collision.
