Heathrow tests touchless luggage delivery technology

Amadeus’ touchless baggage delivery technology is being tested at London’s Heathrow Airport. Touchless bag drop uses proximity sensors to allow passengers to check in their luggage without touching kiosk screens. The new contactless experience was initially installed in six Heathrow Auto Bag Drop (ABD) units supplied by ICM Airport Technics, an Amadeus company. The non-contact solution sees an infrared proximity sensor installed along the top edge of the luggage drop screen, which detects the passenger’s finger up to 3 centimeters from the screen surface. This allows travelers to interact with the bag drop unit normally, but without the need to physically touch the screen. – https://www.panrotas.com.br/aviacao/aeroportos/2021/09/heathrow-testa-tecnologia-de-entrega-de-bagagem-sem-toque_184124.html
