Aisino Co, an information security solution provider based in China, has developed a luggage monitoring system, which uses the emerging RFID radio frequency identification and 'internet of things' (IOT) technology.
The company argues that China's rapidly-developing economy, and its growing importance on the international stage, has put a greater demand on its transport sector. This has led to huge pressure on China's airport management, especially the management of inbound luggage inspection.
To address the problem of insufficient manpower during inspection, the company has employed the RFID system, which provides a penetrating sight. Aisino's luggage monitoring system uses X-ray inspection equipment, video surveillance systems and customs information systems, linked together with the 'internet of things'.
The system offers all-round management and analysis of passengers, luggage, vehicles, the environment, security personnel and other factors, and it also provides real-time warning.
By using advanced IOT technology to develop a customs network, the system is able to monitor the whole airport luggage holding, area as well as monitoring the location and control of suspicious luggage.
On 15 August, the company successfully trialled the new monitoring system in Shenyang Taoxian International Airport T3 Terminal in order to provide customs clearance service for the entry and exit visitors.
