Shipping ports and logistics centers changed a lot in the past decades. Automatic Container Code Recognition (shortly ACCR) became almost a standard for building comprehensive databases – tracking container movement, automating and simplifying railway or harbor logistics, border control and container surveillance systems.
Carmen® ACCR automates these processes efficiently: all you need is a camera, set in position to view container codes so Carmen® can receive the perfect input. The recognition happens in a blink of an eye and the OCR data – including serial number with check digit, owner, country code, size, type and equipment category – can be saved to a database or transferred further to any IT system.
Carmen® ACCR accepts image input both from CCTV cameras or dedicated container code cameras (available from Adaptive Recognition).
ISO 6346 (BIC), MOCO (Montan Container) and ILU (European Intermodal Loading Units) types are all supported.
APIs for your integration
Straightforward integration is enabled by the support of C/C++, C#, Visual Basic, .NET and Java languages
Accuracy is guaranteed by Carmen®, the same recognition engine that is used worldwide for license plate reading as well.
The OCR data, the captured image, the confidence level and recognition are all included in the output.
Use Carmen® ACCR on both Windows and Linux operating systems.
CARMEN® ACCR is designed to extract container codes from digital images. The unique serial number with check digit, owner, country code, size, type and equipment category as well as operational marks (if any) of every cargo container are returned with the highest accuracy available on the market. The software comes with an API package that lets you integrate it seamlessly with any end user application.
