A new system will use an electronic baggage sticker and a geolocating device to allow users to keep track of their luggage's whereabouts while also saving time at the airport.
The eTag and eTrack will be used separately or together. The eTag will be designed to replace the typical airline baggage sticker with an electronic sticker that will allow the user to load the flight information at home, before the trip begins. The tag will sync with a smartphone via Bluetooth, allowing flight details to be automatically updated, and the bags can be dropped off at a fast drop. The eTrack will be designed to fit inside the luggage, where its geolocational capabilities will allow the user and the airline personnel to track it, and the bag's, location around the world.
