Tag-a-Bag tests NFC baggage tracking service


Israeli start-up Tag-a-Bag has begun beta testing an NFC-based travel service that uses baggage labels equipped with NFC tags to help travellers manage their journeys.

The service, which won the “Best Innovative Solution” category in this year’s NFC Forum/Wima Global Competition, allows users to track lost luggage, access travel plans, post news of their safe arrival to friends and family via social media, receive offers and create a log of their travels.

An animation produced by Tag-a-Bag shows the concept in action:
