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
- Automating ADR (HIN) code reading that saves time and resources
- Offering faster, more accurate inventory tracking and surveillance
- Maintaining road, tunnel and bridge safety
- Tracking vehicles carrying dangerous goods
- Traffic and security system support
- Business intelligence and video analytics
CARMEN® ADR provides solution for common problems by:
CARMEN® ADR is ideal for:
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.

ADR/HIN (KEMLER) CODE RECOGNITION SOFTWARE LIBRARY AND SDK
|The dedicated OCR engine greatly assists in the management of container or freight logistic tasks and in the surveillance of transporter movements.||Cameras combined with OCR engine placed at the entrances and exits of tunnels can provide live updates regarding the exact type and movement of hazardous materials.||Effective OCR can simplify border surveillance of dangerous goods movement in all environments and even of fast-moving vehicles.|
|Processed OCR data coming from roaming or fix camera can provide ITS networks with live information about the position of HAZMAT in traffic, congestions or accidents.||The OCR engine’s SDK allows easy integration with any database or management network.||The software can provide ITS or other patrol cars with live OCR-based surveillance updates about the transport of HAZMAT in freight or shipping containers.|
