The future of bag drops? New robot Leo meets flyers outside the terminal, scans their boarding pass and takes luggage away
Instead of looking for the check-in desk to drop off your luggage at an airport, you could be leaving your bags outside of the terminal with a robotic baggage handler in the future. The new technology, which is being trialled this month at Geneva airport’s Terminal 1, takes the luggage into the terminal on its own, allowing passengers to go straight through to security. It is hoped that the robot will speed up the check-in process at airports and reduce congestion within the terminal itself.
