BERDS developed a Dynamic Display System (DDS) to largely display, on a screen of one or more displays, bag information to accompany corresponding baggage as it travels along with the baggage carousel in real-time synchronization.

BERDS system may give passengers, based on the airport's permission, the option to control and customize some of the displayed information. Displayed information could include at least one of a flight number, departure airport, a passenger photo, a passenger name, a passenger's family, passenger nickname, boarding sequence, a bag sequence on the carousel, a number of passenger's uncollected bags, notification on luggage type…

As a result of DDS, passengers will retrieve their luggage more efficiently and expeditiously, resulting in improved passenger experience. At the same time, the system will greatly improve the airports' operation activities and will have potentially positive effects on airports' commercial revenues, especially retail and advertising revenue.

Improved Luggage Security

The rate of the lost and the stolen bags at the baggage reclaiming area is as low as 5% of the total mishandled bags. However, it costed the air industry over $500Millions US Dollars in 2018, and it is a sufficient cause to keep passengers’ anxiety all flight long till they got their belongings back.

BERDS will highly contribute in improving luggage security. Displaying every bag’s details gives a strong impression that all the bags are very well observed, creating a psychological factor deter any fraud attempt.

The option of displaying passenger photos will engage all passengers around the carousel in the securing of the luggage; fraudsters will feel as they are being observed by everyone around. A theft would not dare to take any bag from carousel that would be obviously clear to everyone around it is not his bag.

In addition, Dynamic Display System together with the fraud alarm function by BERDS App, form an integrated robust solution that firmly guards and secures luggage at reclaiming carousel while passengers are away. Both systems will inform passengers in real-time via a push notification and alarm on any fraud raising up all the details (location, bag, )

Crowd Control

The luxurious airline, advanced airport services, passenger age, or gender will not intercede to avoid the inconveniences of the chaotic, crowded baggage reclaim carousel. The fact that mistakes and fraud at the baggage reclaim area are still uncontrolled justifies the crowded carousel, and the mad dash passengers toward the baggage reclaim as every passenger rush to secure his luggage to avoid any potential mistake or loss.

BERDS reassures passengers that their belongings are safe and secured, giving them the chance to enjoy airport amenities. Reaching the baggage reclaim area, passengers unconsciously will stay away from the carousel for better reading of the Dynamic Display System, keeping on social distancing, taking care of their family, or simply enjoying a talk with friends while they can still accurately observe their bags on the carousel.
