OCR SOFTWARE FOR CONTAINER CODE RECOGNITION
CARMEN® AUTOMATIC CONTAINER CODE RECOGNITION (ACCR)is created to extract and read the identification codes of ISO 6346 intermodal containers. This ISO code reading capability of shipping containers makes logistics environments more intelligent by building comprehensive databases tracking container movement, automating and simplifying railway or harbor logistics, assisting border control and container surveillance systems. CARMEN® ACCR reads the container codes from digital still images, digital image flow or live video signal. 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.
CARMEN® ACCR offers:
- High accuracy and industry leading high recognition rates
- Increased accuracy and security for logistic supply chains
- Smooth and problem-free 24/7 operation
- Easy integration through SDK and user-friendly API
- Automating ISO 6346/MOCO/ILU code reading that saves time and resources
- Allowing faster, more accurate inventory tracking and surveillance
- Enabling and maintaining real-time container location tracking
- Maritime, harbour and landside logistics and inventory management
- Terminal, port traffic and security system support
- Business intelligence and real-time inventory analytics

CARMEN® ACCR offers the advantage to automatically recognize any vertically and horizontally aligned international standard container codes:
- ISO 6346 (BIC)
- MOCO (Montan Container)
- ILU (European Intermodal Loading Units)
- and dimension codes
The image source can either be analog or digital IP cameras. By adding illumination to the cameras, the software is able to adapt to the environmental changes for a smooth 24/7 operation. It is fast, easy and straightforward to use.
CARMEN® ACCR has the capability to receive multiple images from multiple image sources to process the same container code and ensure high recognition accuracy.
Its development libraries (DLL, SO) allow flexible integration on both Windows and Linux platforms. In server mode CARMEN® ACCR is able to perform parallel processing and handling of unlimited camera inputs.
