OCR SOFTWARE FOR UIC RAILWAY CODE RECOGNITION
CARMEN® RAILWAY CODE RECOGNITION (UIC)is created to extract and read the UIC numbers from rolling stock. By recognizing the UIC codes on train cars, Carmen® UIC provides unparalleled accuracy and speed for railway transportation applications. Commercial railway system operators can register passing railway carriages – carrying cargo or passengers – without human assistance by taking advantage of automatic railway code recognition, which in turn can be stored and processed for statistical or system management purposes. By automatically reading the UIC code numbers of railway wagons from an image or video signal for international and logistic operations, Carmen® UIC enables railway system operators to access important data of the contents of each wagon, as well as the date, time and location of the railway cars.
CARMEN® UIC offers:
- High accuracy and industry leading high recognition rates
- Real-time traceability of passenger and cargo railway cars
- Smooth and problem-free 24/7 operation
- Easy integration through SDK and user-friendly API
- Automating UIC code reading, saving time and resources
- Allowing faster, more accurate tracking of wagons
- Increasing safety on railways by providing live traffic data
- Railway operators, infrastructure companies and transportation authorities
- Business intelligence, railroad traffic and safety analytics
CARMEN® UIC provides solution for common problems by:
CARMEN® UIC is ideal for:
CARMEN® UIC offers the advantage of automatically reading wagon numbers or UIC codes, 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® UIC is able to perform parallel processing and handling of unlimited camera inputs.

What is a UIC Code?
Wagon numbers (or coach numbers) are key data for railway operations. UIC codes help identify and track railway wagons for railway operators, infrastructure companies and transportation authorities. UIC, by the way, stands for the the French name of the International Union of Railways.
UIC code recognition
Carmen® UIC offers automatic recognition of UIC codes on railway wagons with the highest accuracy and recognition rates in the industry.
The image source can either be analog, digital or IP cameras – Carmen® UIC accepts still images or MJPEG video streams as well. 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.
Arriving in a form of an SDK, 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.
