Alstef, a provider of automated solutions, has developed an autonomous baggage handling robot for airports.

The robot, dubbed BAGXone, is a high-speed automated guided vehicle capable of handling individual bags and navigating airports autonomously.

According to its developers, in addition to knowing its position and its environment in real-time, BAGXone:

  • Autonomously loads and unloads from baggage handling systems
  • Achieves speeds of up to 7 m/s for long distance connection
  • Dynamically unloads to chutes
  • Horizontally and dynamically transfers from above

The BAGXone was recently introduced at the Passenger Terminal Expo.
