easyJet launches an augmented reality application to scan luggage measurements

easyJet has launched a mobile application that allows passengers to scan their carry-on luggage before going to the airport to know in advance if luggage measurements are adequate for cabin travel.

The airline has made use of the most advanced technology to introduce improvements in the process of ‘check in’. With this application, passengers can know before traveling to the airport if the size of their luggage is adequate to be transported in the cabin space and ensure that there will be no additional charge.

The application uses the technology of Apple ARKit 2 and is available in its initial phase in the iOS operating system. The operation of the app combines augmented reality technology with the mobile phone camera of passengers to determine the measurements. A 3D square will appear on the screen. When the bag is focused, scan the measurements to see if they are adequate.
