Application of RFID Tags in Airport Management

Ⅰ. The use and application of RFID tags

RFID tags were introduced at Hong Kong airport in 2004. After more than a decade of development, more and more airlines are adopting RFID-based tracking systems to eliminate the problem of losing baggage and thus reduce the cost of baggage handling process.


At present, RFID tag applications are mostly in foreign countries. RFID tags are used in South Korea Airport, Narita Airport in Japan, Newark Liberty International Airport, San Francisco Airport in the United States, Beijing Capital International Airport to track luggage. Due to the impact of the epidemic, airports are also constantly using RFID tags to reduce human contact.

In recent days, with the overall improvement in the epidemic control in China, the number of China's passenger flights and passenger traffic has picked up significantly. New counters in China's airports, such as Hongqiao Airport, have fully supported RFID baggage tracking and inquiry functions, as well as Alipay and WeChat payment functions, allowing the payment for excess baggage through scanning QR code. In addition, the new baggage self-check counter can automatically detect whether the weight and size of the checked luggage are in accordance with the regulations.


Ⅱ. Advantages of RFID tag application in baggage sorting technology

1. Fast scanning


Barcode scanning is correspondent one to one, while the bluetooth UHF RFID reader can simultaneously identify and read multiple UHF RFID tags.


2. Small in size and diversified in shape

The read of RFID technology is not limited by the size and shape, so there is no need to match the paper's fixed size and printing quality for reading accuracy.


3. Strong anti-pollution ability and durability


Unlike traditional barcode carriers, which are paper-based and prone to contamination, RFID tags store data on a chip, so they can be protected from contamination.


4. Reusability


Most of the bar code cannot be changed after printing; the data in stored in the RFID volume label can be repeatedly added, modified, deleted, which is convenient for information update.


5. Penetrating and unobstructed reading


When covered, RFID tags are able to penetrate non-metallic or opaque materials such as paper, wood and plastic and are able to carry out penetrating communication. Barcode scanners can only read a barcode at a close range without objects blocking it.


6. Safety


As RFID tags carry electronic information, the data content can be protected by password, so that the content is not easy to be forged and altered.
