Heathrow Baggage System SCADA

Project Description

Baggage handling system

The main function of a baggage handling system is to transport bags from a baggage entry point check-in desk to a pre-determined output point in a timely manner for loading into the aircraft. Between bag entry and bag delivery, several processes are needed to be executed by the system. The bags will be:

  • Automatically identifying bags by their label
  • Screen for explosives
  • If passengers are too early for their flight store bags in an early bag store
  • Automated sortation
  • Fast track (for late bags that require urgent processing)
  • Manually handled (for large bags; and loading & unloading systems)
