One of worst nightmares for travellers is
probably to wait and fight in the queue to see
if their luggage arrives on the conveyor belt
in the airport terminal. Hence we start to
wonder if we can design a device that is able
to alert people when their luggage arrives, to
alarm them if it is stolen and help the
airport staff with a search function when the
luggage is lost.

Bag iTag is a connected luggage tag that helps
travellers to track their luggage. It is tiny,
Bluetooth enabled and waterproof. The design
combines an attractive shape (in a form of an
exclamation mark) easily recognisable but also
ergonomically supporting the stress and shocks
of a luggage travelling. The back side of the
products has a rewritable surface to input and
change traveller details. When travelling,
users can relax at luggage arrivals as they
will be notified, via a secure mobile app,
once their luggage has reached the carousel.
They can also share their luggage unique ID
with airport staff, airlines to help locate if
the luggage goes missing. The app connected to
the product runs on Android and iOS and follow
the same simple design with only two screens
for all set-up and interactions.
