As to improve the baggage facility at Tokyo International Airport, Japan Airline Ground Service launched the latest wearable robotic technology ATOUN MODEL Y.
ATOUN MODEL Y, created by the Japanese tech company ATOUN, advances productivity by decreasing physical stress by 10 kg that may arise over time on the carrier’s airport personnel.
Yasuhiro Nakamura, a representative of Japanese airlines while speaking at a press conference asserted: “We decided to employ this technology for the excellent reviews that our on-site staff provided at the time of trial.”
He also said, “It’s easy to apply, remove and walk while wearing. Another reason is that we could expect furthermore development from the maker,”

The airlines mentioned that the gear will be in use when staff sort baggage from a conveyor belt will load them to the container and also when there’s storage of baggage in the cargo warehouse.
An ATOUN official said, “Now the gear is being used increasingly at different workplaces that require physical labour such as in storage and manufacture. We think that its usage can expand to different fields like farming or even welfare to lift transfer a patient from bed to a wheelchair.”
