Cognex Corporation (NASDAQ: CGNX), the world's leader in machine vision, today announced its Airport Baggage Handling Identification Solution (ABH-ID), the first image-based automatic tag reader (ATR) system that overcomes the limitations of current laser-based baggage ID systems. Cognex technology provides significantly higher read rates over laser-based systems, reducing the costs associated with manual delivery of lost or late checked luggage.
The ABH-ID Solution offers the exceptional ability to quickly and accurately read damaged tags. Fewer "no reads" means fewer bags miss their flights, which will increase total baggage handling system efficiency.
The Cognex ABH-ID Solution incorporates industry-leading DataMan® fixed-mount image-based barcode readers. Image-based readers have a solid-state design requiring virtually no maintenance, as opposed to laser scanners with moving parts that can wear out and fail. The solution also features patent-pending Xpand™ technology that provides the flexibility to fit into space-constricted environments. Xpand technology offers improved redundancy and increased field of view, which simplifies installation and reduces overall system cost.
The Cognex Airport Baggage Handling Identification Solution is available now. Cognex engineers are available to consult with airport facility managers, providing onsite demonstrations and free trial installations. For more information, visit www.cognex.com/ATR
