Suggestions for improvement in the automation of baggage handling (English)
Abstract [en]

This report will outline a proposal for the improvement of the baggage sorting facility at Arlanda airport. Swedavia is a state owned company group that operates, owns and develops airports in Sweden. One of their main roles is to create accessibility needed to facilitate and streamline the work at the airport.

Swedavia is constantly working to develop new solutions and enhancements that will help to standardize and automate the work at airports without major impact on climate and above all adapt these solutions to work.

The project has been aimed to identify and isolate the problem at the check-in counter, investigate the possibility of setting a speed control on the DC motor driving the luggage conveyer belt at the check-in desk so that the luggage does not lose tracking already there, as well as evaluate the new sorting systems planned to be introduce in the upcoming refurbishment of the sorting area.

To determine the parameters that are used to regulate the speed of the baggage conveyor belt, information about the inputs and outputs that participated in the process was gathered. Information was collected both practically and theoretically. Process was followed and monitored by the supervisor of the company, and a theoretical study was done separately on my own. Simulations were performed in Matlab Simulink and baggage-handling system was modeled in SolidWorks.

The project has resulted in a solution to control the conveyer belt speed to reduce the number of baggage that drop tracing at check-in counters. As a basis for the discussions images from the control simulation were used as well as the modeling that was done in SolidWorks.

Enhancement proposal is economically sustainable and adapted to the infrastructure and technology available today at the terminal.
