Why SMART Luggage is a must for the Future of Transportation

Why SMART Luggage is a must for the Future of Transportation

Why smart luggage is a must for the future of transportation. 

Transportation is advancing fast, or is it? Well both statements are true. As a society, we have been working on advanced means of transportation that eclipse previous versions of transport such as trains, planes, rockets, cars and many other areas for 20 years. Recently, the breakthroughs have compounded to a point where progress is noticeable to the average person who is not up to speed on the innovations that have been made. Because of this, it appears that progress is fast, but in fact, progress has reached a moment where it now can have a mass effect on how we communicate, commute, and transport goods, services and people. Many of the innovations are break throughs that have occurred from integrating older technology to create a new technology. By doing this, we also ignite a new round of ideas and theories which leads to research and the eventual development of new technologies to be paired with existing technology. 

Smart luggage is one of those new technologies that is being born from the massive overhaul and clever integration of past technologies. We have always had the means, the hard job at hand is taking those means and figuring out what components that exist can be ignited to a new level and be repurposed to inspire a new forms of travel technology. GPS, weight modules, cameras, and ultra violet light, all old technologies. UVC has been used to treat medical equipment, water filtration and water supply systems, food quality and sterility, along with many other industries for decades. It was only recently that it became somewhat affordable with UVC Led created. And GPS, has been around for decades as well. Each in its own way has evolved to a superior version of itself. As a result, each technology has reached a scale where luggage can now capitalize on the decades of progress. Who do we have to thank for driving those technological advancements? Primarily the cell phone and personal computer industries. They have driven internet to reach 5G status and eventual 6G along with the year over year shrinking of the microprocessor and other hardware such as cameras.

What have we done in the past? In terms of ticketing, booking and reservation services, we have mastered the process, truly streamlining the 20th century experience. But we live in the 21st century now, aiming rockets to Mars with Airless hyperloop chambers and friction free transportation. Our ticketing, processing, booking, and check in process must also evolve to be relevant and keep par with the means of transportation. We believe smart luggage to be the missing link. The last unexplored frontier in travel that can truly tie it all together. Its personal, convenient, and has the capability to add a secure blanket of safety and security to the travel process. 
With smart luggage and existing supportive networks, the future of travel can mitigate all germ risk, eliminate all safety concerns, while making lost luggage a phenomenon from the 20th century. Travel  luggage has the potential to expedite check in of passengers, screening for less than 30 seconds. Entertainment onboard the luggage will be more convenient than a phone, faster, bigger screens.

Currently in travel, we face some serious concerns with luggage, and more importantly processing of passengers and cargo in a timely manner. Imagine if your luggage could screen you, screen your personal items, and check you and your luggage in all-in-one step. This is the future we are building. To  raise the bar in travel, and truly aim for something like space travel, we must advance luggage to solve the existing problems in the current passenger and operations experiences to pave the way for smart contactless check in of passengers, personal items, and cargo. The technology exists and ADHERE GEAR Technology is providing the will and the way. 
Be sure to tune in to our next BLOG Post, where we discuss how we plan to deploy smart luggage to the masses starting small but aiming big.

Building SMART Luggage, Lessons Learned in Travel

ADHERE GEAR SHARES ITS INSIGHTS INTO BUILDING SMART LUGGAGE 

We are currently working hard on the Market ready version of EVA SMART Luggage working with many different Professionals, organizations and teams to create the greatest luggage experience we have ever seen. We are actively preparing for Testing our product on various trip routes with airline companies. To be apart of this, be sure to check out our Pre-Launch Kickstarter Crowd Funding Campaign, and sign up to be a product tester. In the meantime, we wanted to tell you a little about us and what we have learned! 

So what are we doing? We are focused on the deployment of a shared use, sustainable Smart Luggage Network for Passengers.

Our team is made up of a collection of 4 well-traveled professionals with exceptional experience from Hyatt Resorts, PDX Airport, HP Disney and many other amazing companies. We have each traveled extensively, nationally and internationallyWe have seen the different challenges of luggage from all angles, and the wonderful cultures that come with travel.

When beginning to think about SMART Luggage, We knew we needed to build something that compliments the existing industry standards, solves some fundamental core issues, and be well positioned for the future. We did loads of research, surveys, and conversations with professionals in the industry to identify the core issues we face when TRAVELING with luggage. During that time, we even worked in the trenches for the 3AM shift at the airports to learn all the equipment, all the operations procedures, loading and unloading baggage and cargo from Boeing 747s and Airbus A380 all the way to small propeller planes. We operated the Tugs, 40 ft Lifts, Altet's, working on rollers in the rain and snow, while loading up the aircraft bellies during peak moments like Christmas and other major holiday around the clock.  We figured, in order to do this right, we needed to know every detail of how luggage moves, what makes it tick, and what areas are holding up our ability to have a great experience with our luggage.

Through those conversations and direct field experiences, we found out that in Travel, we face some serious problems when it comes to our luggage. Exposure to a variety of germs, lost luggage, overweight fees, along with safety concerns in a public space. We narrowed it down to 4 basic questions.

We are taking the word sustainable to a new level when it comes to travel and luggage. With shared use as our business model we are able to take the standard 10K Units Production run and have an impact on 1 Million Passengers within 1 year! Now that’s sustainable!! Our luggage is designed from day 1 to be clean and stay clean on both the exterior and interior. With such high growth occurring in travel around the world over the past 50 years, its imperative that we introduce a more manageable system when it comes to personal possessions, screening, and processing of cargo and personal items. We found if you can understand what items are being brought on board, then you can mitigate moments of exposure and create a stronger safety net for everyone.

In addition to a sustainable model, we are aiming for materials far superior to that of traditional luggage. Our luggage is positioned to be 10x stronger and half the weight of traditional luggage!

With this approach, our product allows the average passengers to Travel CLEAN, SAFE and SUSTAINABLE. Our network will allow for a superior version of security to blanket the existing operations.

What is our long-term plan? Within 5 years, we look to create the opportunity for self-check-in of luggage from home prior to even leaving the home.

With a sophisticated combination of integrated technologies, we are developing, we feel that this is more than achievable, and a must, given the circumstances of travel. With contactless self-check in from home, we see a future in travel that is cleaner with a more enjoyable passage experience from doorstep to destination.

We found that items imperative to creating something that can seamlessly integrated with plans for electrified flight, passenger drone flight and all other major means of transportation that are right around the corner. In order for us to create more efficient systems of transportation, how we carry our personal items is going to be critical to ensure safety and a well-rounded experience. We aim to be at the forefront of those luggage innovations!

We are actively working with AutoDesk Inc, along with other industry experts in various categories of manufacturing, software, hardware and in travel. We are a registered entity with US Government, NCAGE, DHS, DOD, DLA, and SAM. We are also registered to do business with international governments, NATO Commercial and Government Entities.

ADHERE GEAR Founder (Robert Buchanan) + INSPIRATION4 Mission to Space!

ADHERE GEAR Founder (Robert Buchanan) + INSPIRATION4 Mission to Space!

We are excited to announce that we are in the race running for a seat on the INSPIRATION4 Space Mission! Space has been such a constant inspiration since age 10.  This founder has no short supply of excitement for the upcoming opportunity to go to space. As a kid, he was building rockets out of spare parts and prototypes out of boxes, crafting space suites from clothes, and filling dozens of sketchbooks with drawing of spaceships, mining planets and exploring  the galaxy. Decades later, those same aspirations have driven Robert E Buchanan Jr to now steer all his efforts on building a Technology Travel Company focused on the deployment of a shared use smart luggage network with a 7 year plan of using the smart luggage for space travel!

His company, along side a team full of resolve and determination, have an immediate goal of changing the face of luggage in our current travel system; improving cleanliness and safety, while adding a new blanket of security to the check-in process. Self check-in from home prior to any departure is a driving feature of the current smart luggage being developed. But in solving these deeply rooted problems, he has his heart set on space, yearning to make an impact and add his contribution to how we make the collective dream of space travel a reality for the average person. Luggage & cargo are both constants in travel. They are essential to the success of any journey whether backpacking, biking, flights or space, we always have something we need to carry with us. So naturally space travel will require the most sophisticated and articulated network that includes personal items being transferred for a passenger. To get to that point, ADHERE GEAR is solving the problems of todays travel system here to work out all the engineering prior to deploying a cargo and luggage network for space travel.

The INSPIRATION4 Mission to space is more than dream come true for this founder of a Portland Tech StartUp. It would propel his teams understanding of what to aim for in the next few generations of the smart luggage to ensure a well engineered product is ready for testing with a target test date of 2025. The next 3 generations of luggage will certainly be focused on domestic and international travel, but he hopes to refine the basic structure and network engineering to then accommodate space in the near future.

Even with the large motivation for his company building smart luggage, there is a deeper motive for this Founder. He looks to inspire children with autoimmune disorders and diseases to dream big and not let any condition get in the way. As a juvenile insulin dependent diabetic since age 10, he has spent decades learning to manage the autoimmunity taking his largest liability and transforming it into his great asset. INSPIRAITON4 is partnered with St. Jude's Medical to raise funds for children's medical treatment and research. Robert is excited about the drive to raise money as he is a huge advocate of children's research and improving the overall health of our global communities.

To qualify for this seat on the SPACEX Rocket, ADHERE GEAR must rally enough support via Twitter. You can support Robert Buchanan and his teams aspiration to go to space in 2 ways

Why Travel is so Important to our Economy and our Future

Why Travel is so Important to our Economy and our Future

Travel is possibly one of the most important facets of our global economy. Its tied to so many entrepreneurial activities, small, medium and large enterprise endeavors. It is responsible for the business ecosystem that thrives from sectors such as hospitality, food and restaurants, shared use vehicles, rental cars, shared housing and the list goes on. Its what bonds our countries together and creates experiences that can only be created by traveling. It’s an experience of freedom and a critical component to finding oneself. More than half the globe travels yearly, with almost 1 Billion people in our country alone. With travel clocking in at $7 Trillion dollars as an industry, its incredibly important to ensure travel returns with some incredible innovations at its side. One thing that is a constant with travel, is that its never not existed. Its been in our history books for thousands of years as a primary means of discovery, thrill and adventure. Our entire country is built on mobility and freedom to travel.

We all can probably agree discovery, adventure and thrill aren’t going anywhere. Travel recently has hit a roadblock with COVID-19. We still have a good 1/3 of people traveling. However, what we need is 100% return along with continued growth. A vaccine for COVID is great, the truth is COVID represents a group of re-occurring and systematic situations that have long occurred in our world for 100’s of years. Outbreaks occur all the time, COVID is nothing new in that regard. Its important for travel to evolve technologically and not lean on a vaccine every time it hits a roadblock. Technology is at a point where we can systematically mitigate exposure rates and design and engineer the experiences to have health at the forefront instead of an afterthought.

However, what COVID-19 and the Coronavirus have done to travel is a simple and swift reset of the existing travel system. This reset allows us to recognize the important facets of travel that may have been neglected over the last few decades since travel has expanded. Travel over the past fifty years has become increasingly easier to attain, with modernized means of transportation, internet connectivity and the widespread availability of options.

With that growth, we have also sacrificed quality in some areas for speed and rapid advancement. The software side of travel has seen explosive growth with an app for almost every part of the travel experience. Whereas items like luggage have fallen to the wayside. Now that the virtual travel experience has been built upon a solid foundation, its now time to look at the tangibles that make travel possible. Transportation is undergoing a massive overhaul in keeping public means of transport cleaner and more sanitary. However, its important to note we did have the opportunity all these decades to have done these same innovations along the way. Its not like we just discovered the germ, or now have a new understanding of bacteria and disease. Those have been discovered and well understood for 100’s of years, in some cases 1000’s of years. It appears to be more like a case of neglect in select areas of travel. Luckily. new means of transportation such as the passenger drone industry and the hyper loop have a head start and can pivot, ensuring advanced systems of sterility and cleanliness are built into the infrastructure early on to avoid situations like COVID.

COVID is simply a reality check to what has been engineered well and what hasn’t. Its important to use COVID as a learning tool, almost like one massive beta test, evaluating that if we were to continue building our systems in the current manner, would it be self-sustaining or require shutdowns and bailouts to accommodate small pivots and shifts.

With that being said, the pandemic is a call to action for new ideas to surface. Ideas that are transformative, outside the box that can lead to incredible feats of engineering. We have seen such moments in the past, but now is the time to roll out a new list of innovations to truly allow travel to evolve to its next inflection point. Many believe travel is dead, and for the most part, the way we have done it in the past does contain many elements that are now going to be obsolete. But with that deletion of old ways of travel, new ideas, products and systems can then be brought in to make a difference, an impact.

In order to accomplish something as amazing and phenomenal as space travel, we must first take our existing travel network and make some tremendous improvements. At the end of the day, the existing means of travel directly tie to how we would go about developing space travel. The more innovative our domestic and global travel is, the more innovative space travel will become. So, cheers to seeing profound change in travel. Lets welcome this new paradigm shift as these changes will lead us down a road to a new place of discovery, adventure, and thrill. A new place, a new journey.
