Design and Implementation of an IoT Based Baggage Tracking System

  • 406 Accesses

Part of the Communications in Computer and Information Science book series (CCIS,volume 1350)

Abstract

Missing pieces of baggage, loss of luggage, and damage to customers’ belongings are the common flaws faced in the aviation industry around the world. Passengers in other transportation sectors are also at risk of luggage theft as they transit from location to another. Therefore, a system needs to be designed and developed to combat these problems. The system has a GSM/GPS module that is integrated into the tracking system to keep it actively connected at all times. Also, an Arduino microcontroller is added to the system for information processing. The system provides the location of luggage on a map for real-time tracking and, that can be achieved when the GPS module retrieves the location coordinates of the bag and sends it to the microcontroller for processing. Afterward, the processed information is sent as an SMS through the GSM module, which provides a connection between the bag and the passenger using the GSM communication system. This IoT based device gives passengers the advantage of seeing the current location of their baggage from anywhere in the world. And, if implemented, this system will reduce the stress experienced by both passengers and the aviation industry in locating missing, misled, or stolen suitcases.
