The Container Number Recognition System (CNRS) is an AI-driven system that can automatically recognise the container number on the top and side walls of the container through a camera. The images taken by the camera are being evaluated by optical character recognition (OCR) software. Then the container information is stored in the database, thereby eliminating the manual intervention of manual intervention in the container number.
The Container Number Recognition System (CNRS) uses a set of cameras to automatically identify the container number located on the top and side walls of the container. The images taken by the camera are being evaluated by optical character recognition (OCR) software. CNRS can be used on crane docks for supervision purposes, as an auxiliary system for crane drivers and for remote control of automatic stacking cranes.
The application program recognize the container number in the picture and sends the result as a character value to the crane control system.
The number of containers entering and leaving any port terminal during peak hours can be very large. The container is manually inspected and verified by humans, so it is prone to errors and proved to be a bottleneck. In order to improve efficiency and throughput, an automated system that detects the number of containers in real time is needed.
CNRS can detect container numbers on ISO containers in several locations (roof and side walls) with different font sizes, colors, and directions and directions.
The CNRS application uses the camera on the spreader. Trigger the application to use the associated camera to take a snapshot from the desired location. The application recognizes the container number in the picture and sends the result as a character value to the crane control (PLC).
Use CNRS to Optimize Resources
Replacing manual container identification with automated systems provides valuable benefits for port operators
Improve time utilization and data management efficiency
Reduce physical labor that causes bottlenecks due to false readings
Carry out effective management and operation at door, yard and container loading and unloading
The automatic container code identification system is designed to automatically detect and identify the container ID and ISO, which will help to reduce the drawbacks of manually recording when they enter the container terminal gate.
The system will facilitate effective container management and operation at the gates of terminals, storage yards, and crane loading and unloading areas. As a scope for improving performance in the future, we can consider replacing multiple models with a single module to improve performance. Improve performance.
