One of the current problems in the airport sector is the baggage losses at the various points of the airport logistics infrastructure. In fact, more than 6 suitcases for each 1,000 passengers are lost. Altogether, a total of 23 million bags are lost each year. This is an unsustainable situation of 2.3 million euros in expenses associated with handling claims and the payment of financial compensations. Therefore, one of the main weaknesses in airport systems is the usage of manual mechanisms for the baggage identification. In other words, luggage inspection is carried out with visual inspection or using barcode readers, both of which require a direct field of view. This causes delays in the identification of suitcases and customer dissatisfaction in the resolution of the problem. With this problem, it's proposed to build a platform adapted to satisfy the current needs using the latest technologies available. It consists in a Web portal, a mobile application, and lastly, a web server that allows the management and query the database. The web portal will support system administrators and airport operators, meanwhile, the mobile application will provide baggage tracking for end-users. The main innovation of the project consists in the utilization of RFID technology. Each baggage incorporates an RFID tag that identifies the suitcase with the data stored in the system's database. Unlike previous systems, the reading is done without visual contact and allows to automate the process. Also, it is developed a reader device using a Raspberry Pi in conjunction with an RFID module with the purpose of reading the tags as antenna receiver inside the platform. In conclusion, the project's objective is to offer a platform that allows the management of baggages with RFID keys in order to reduce economic expenses, a general improvement on the resolution of problems and avoid the loss of personal baggages.
