Automated airport systems that increase efficiency and safety for customers and teams
When airport systems operate efficiently, passengers and staff get what they need, when they need it. But when disruption hits, streamlined systems are needed more than ever. By wirelessly tracking every bag as it moves through automated systems and each essential tool or asset, RAIN RFID systems enabled by the Impinj platform speed operations, reduce errors, and eliminate manual tasks. The same tag used to connect a bag can also enable touch-free check-in and reduce contact between staff and travellers. Automating tracking tools and equipment means team members easily find and handle precisely what they need. Solutions built by Impinj partners are in use in airports across the globe.
