Leo travels to Mexico

05 July 2017

SITA presented its Leo baggage robot in June 2017 to senior air transport industry executives at an innovation forum in Mexico City International Airport.

Leo is a fully autonomous robot that looks after baggage. It meets passengers as they arrive at the airport, checks them in, prints bag tags, and takes their bags away for processing. Onboard obstacle avoidance technology enables it to move around a busy airport without bumping into people or objects.

Alex Covarrubias, SITA vice-president of airports for Latin America, said the firm is exploring technologies that can improve the passenger experience. "Robotics and automation, along with biometric identification and artificial intelligence, are changing the way airports will be designed in the future," he noted.
