Locating Luggage Tags

The Samsonite Stork Bag Tag Keeps Tabs on Your Possessions in Transit

— February 13, 2014 — Life-Stages
It's amazing how many suitcases get lost between airports each year -- a number that would draw you to a Samsonite Stork travel tag immediately. Alan Ng's concept was to place a Wi-Fi and RFID-enabled chip inside of your luggage label so that you can track its location from your very own smartphone.

The baggage tag would comprise a durable peripheral case that would contain two AMOLED displays with ultra-thin electronic components pressed between them. A micro USB port and a micro USB drive would facilitate the easy recharging of the battery and the storage of information. The Samsonite Stork would lock around your valise and communicate with you through a mobile app. The GPS would show you its location, as well as within-range notifications for when your things are close-by and ready for pickup in the terminal.
Trend Themes
1. Smart Luggage Tracking - Developing luggage tags with built-in Wi-Fi and RFID technology for real-time tracking and location updates.
2. Durable Electronic Components - Creating ultra-thin electronic components with AMOLED displays that can withstand the rigors of travel.
3. Mobile App Integration - Integrating luggage tracking systems with mobile apps to provide users with convenient and accessible location information.
Industry Implications
1. Travel and Tourism - The travel and tourism industry can benefit from implementing smart luggage tracking systems to enhance customer experience and reduce lost luggage incidents.
2. Electronics and Technology - The electronics and technology industry can explore opportunities in developing innovative and durable electronic components for smart luggage tracking tags.
3. Mobile Application Development - The mobile application development industry can capitalize on integrating luggage tracking systems with user-friendly mobile apps for seamless travel experiences.
