Updated: The airport will test chipless RFID tags and a tracking system that monitor passengers and their baggage through to their final destination.

Boston's Logan International Airport has agreed to allow a pilot project funded by Boston Engineering and Inkode Corp. to demonstrate chipless RFID technology that tracks customers and their baggage from arrival to final destination.

Boston Engineering will utilize Vienna, Va.-based Inkode's CRIS (Chipless Remote Identification System) technology as the basis for the pilot program.
