Cabin Luggage Check

An intelligent system for checking hand luggage is our cabin luggage check for the automatic inspection of hand baggage. The system identifies the bags and verifies the compliance with the specific airline rules for cabin luggage.

This ensures that only bags which are of correct size and weight will be accepted as hand luggage and avoids time delays while boarding the aircraft.

Secure Access: Our solutions for your safety.

Our Secure Access software provides safe access to various kinds of secure areas in airport environments – running in attended or unattended modes.

When passengers pass from landside to airside, it checks their boarding passes and verifies the information by comparing it with the airport’s database.

It provides additional information, statistics, peak times, passengers residence and also displays the walking time of passengers to their gate or any gate changes.

Self Boarding: Convinced by efficiency and security

Optimize your boarding process significantly with our Self Boarding Gate solution. After successfully reading the passenger´s boarding pass, the system automatically checks the validity of the passenger data and provides the airline with all the information it needs – without anyone else being involved.

The Self Boarding application can be integrated easily into your existing infrastructure and if required, it can also be equipped with a biometric data identification function, such as face recognition.
