Baggage Vision System – Enhanced Bag Tag Recognition Based on OCR Technology

Baggage Vision

Baggage labels with barcodes can end up torn or twisted. Once a bag tag can no longer be read, the baggage item has to be diverted to manual coding stations.

The Baggage Vision System from Siemens combines barcode reading with optical character recognition (OCR).

The enhanced bag tag recognition system, the OCR technology scans and interprets the information on damaged bag tags and helps divert bags to their destination within seconds. Siemens has successfully applied OCR for many years, such as in postal and parcel handling systems all over the world.
