Aurora-AI’s OCR product has been successfully trialled at a major European Airport delivering enhanced sorting of bags, reducing manual intervention.

The system reads the text from a bag tag to determine which flight the bag is associated with. This process improves the read rates of bags where the barcode is not visible or damaged. Up to 80% of the bags that would otherwise have been manually sorted can now be managed automatically.

The Aurora-AI OCR solution can also support remote assessment of bags and will operate stand alone with no requirement for external connection to decode the barcode. Hence it acts as a fail safe for the Airport meaning that bags continue to move all the time.
