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 logistic environments more intelligent by building comprehensive databases of traffic movement, automating and simplifying airport, railways or harbors, managing border control inventory 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 recognition rate to reduce data entry errors
  • Increased security and safety of transport units
  • Smooth and problem-free 24/7 operation
  • Easy installation through SDK; user-friendly API

CARMEN® ACCR provides solution for common problems by:
  • Automated ISO 6346/MOCO code reading that saves time and resources
  • Faster, more accurate inventory tracking and surveillance
  • Safer and more secure roads, bridges and tunnels

CARMEN® ACCR is ideal for:
  • Traffic and security system support
  • Business intelligence and video analytics

CARMEN® ACCR offers the advantage with its ability to automatically recognize any vertically and horizontally aligned ISO 6346 (BIC), MOCO (Montan Container), and dimension codes from an image source (e.g. analog or digital cameras; line scanners), and by adapting to environmental changes for 24/7 operation. It is fast, easy and straightforward to use, and multiple image and image sources process the same container code to ensure high recognition accuracy. Its development libraries (DLL, SO) allow flexible integration through their SDK on both Windows and Linux platforms; 32&64 bit; x86, ARM, power PC, and in server mode CARMEN® ACCR is able to perform parallel processing and handling of unlimited camera inputs.
