A prototype for unloading unknown baggage from a baggage cart was implemented by use of available technology. The system consists of a double gripper for sack-like objects, a double vacuum blower, vacuum sensors and a laser scanner as optical sensor. Five software components control the unloading process. The system can handle cases, bags and some rucksacks. The results show that the chosen approach is capable of handling unknown objects.
