 Ever Lost Luggage While Traveling? Worry No More as 'Smartbag' Comes To Your Rescue

Researchers are testing a new technology that will allow users to track their luggage right from their smartphones.

Airbus developed the bag, named Bag2Go, in partnership with a luggage manufacturer and the telecom company T-Systems.

With Bag2Go, when a luggage ends up being loaded on to a wrong flight, the owner and the airline are quickly alerted, CBS News reported.

The new technology relies on a small SIM card. In this technology, the owner of the bag punches flight details into a smartphone app and the app sends the data to the SIM card, allowing the bag, the owner and the airline to stay electronically connected throughout the flight.
