Travellers spend their lives discovering new places and meeting new people from all around the world. It can be such a wonderful experience, but sometimes it can turn into a disaster when your luggage gets lost. In 2014 alone, more than 24 million pieces of baggage were lost. Fortunately, 95% of them were found and returned to their owners. However, that leaves more than 1 million items of baggage that have never been recovered.
The Solution
Accent Systems has acted as a hardware partner for Samsonite, the world’s leading luggage brand, performing a beacon luggage development: from hardware design, firmware development, and manufacturing. In the software side, this project has count with ‘In the Pocket’ as the developers of the app.

This launch represents a turning point respect to the existing smart suitcases in the market, due to the fact that is the first one that uses Eddystone-EID (Ephemeral ID) to securely locate your lost luggage, thanks to the open beacon format from Google.

    Users can easily check the location of the suitcase within a distance of 70 meters, and also be notified if it is being moved closer or further away from the users.
