Robots taking our jobs: DFW airport installs bot baggage handlers

DFW International Airport is now the temporary home to the first system of baggage-handling robots, known as FLEET. When the baggage robots are in action, passengers take their luggage to self-bag drops, which deposit their luggage onto one of the new robots, which then deliver bags to the baggage belt. This system, which was developed by the Netherlands-based logistic automation company Vanderlande, is still in the testing phase, according to Khaled Naja, DFW Airport’s executive vice president of infrastructure and development.
