FastTrack, which provides electronic bag tags and track and trace solutions for travellers, has designed its new Eviate eTrack solution using Telit Wireless Solutions’ HE910-D and SE868 V2 GPS receivers.
“Connecting consumers to the ‘things’ that matter the most to them is an integral part of our on-going strategy to fully enable the Internet of Things,” said Carlos Perez, EVP Global Sales, Telit Wireless Solutions. “Knowing that Telit is playing a role in helping travellers, as well as airlines, avoid the costs and frustrations associated with luggage loss is very satisfying.”
The Eviate eTrack is the first solution to be linked to worldwide travel systems. As a result, both passengers and airlines can now know where every bag is located – all the time, Telit claimed.
eTrack also sends the owner a message when the suitcase is on the baggage carousel, and whether it has been opened during the journey. The patented eTrack technology is the only tracking solution to meet all international air travel regulations, according to the company.
Graham Kelly, CTO of FastTrack Company, said: "After two years of intensive research and development we are proud to be able to offer the Eviate eTrack with a very attractive pricing."
Additionally, Eviate eTag is a digital baggage tag, which allows passengers to check in at home, skipping long lines at the check-in desk at the airport. Passengers who would like to use the eTag can leave their details when ordering the eTrack.
The eTag is currently only available in conjunction with participating airlines. FastTrack Company is currently working with all airlines to begin using the eTag solution.
