CARMEN® ADR – OCR SOFTWARE FOR HAZMAT PLATE READING

CARMEN® AUTOMATIC DANGEROUS GOODS RECOGNITION (ADR)

is developed to recognize and decipher the hazard identification number (Kemler code) of commercial vehicles carrying hazardous materials. By reading the HIN numbers, traffic monitoring and road safety systems can become highly automated, and therefore maintain safer roads, tunnels or bridges while transporting dangerous cargo. Carmen® ADR identifies the materials being carried and provides emergency responders with the ability to reference the information on the codes to quickly identify the hazards. Carmen® ADR software successfully recognizes the three figures of HIN codes on transport vehicles from a variety of image sources, offering great flexibility.
CARMEN® ADR offers:
  • High accuracy and high recognition rates
  • Increased security and safety of transportation infrastructure
  • Smooth and problem-free operation, 24/7
  • Easy integration through SDK and user-friendly API

CARMEN® ADR provides solution for common problems by:
  • Automating ADR (HIN) code reading that saves time and resources
  • Offering faster, more accurate inventory tracking and surveillance
  • Maintaining road, tunnel and bridge safety

CARMEN® ADR is ideal for:
  • Tracking vehicles carrying dangerous goods
  • Traffic and security system support
  • Business intelligence and video analytics

CARMEN® ADR offers the advantage with its ability to automatically read hazard identification numbers – HIN (Kemler Code) and recognize even blank plates, while adapting to environmental changes for 24/7 operation. It is fast and easy with straightforward use with any hardware, compatible with any image source (analog / digital / still images / MJPEG video streams) and supports both Windows and Linux platforms. Its development libraries (DLL, SO) allow flexible integration through their SDK, and in server mode Carmen® ADR is able to perform parallel processing and handling of unlimited camera inputs.
