This study aimed to develop a system which can assure security of the clients' baggage in the counter. Specifically, the study sought to address the following issues: (a) the device's capability of keeping automatically the item placed on the weight sensor, (b) its ability to reduce the time spent by the customer in checking in a baggage to the automated baggage counter, and (c) its capacity to solve the problem of baggage interchange upon claiming.

Experimental development and descriptive methods were used in making this study. Five purposively chosen evaluators were invited to assess the functionality of the system as well as to criticize the work and to recommend further improvement.

Findings of the study revealed that the design project could perform what it intended to do.
