Visy Rail OCR Portal

Efficient rail cargo OCR and condition imaging

Visy Rail OCR Portal automatically images trains, wagons, and containers and extracts recognition data of passing cargo. With Visy’s OCR engine and AI recognition software, the system environment identifies container IDs, wagon numbers, ISO codes, dangerous goods labels, and other interests while cargo is entering or leaving a terminal area. The solution provides rail and intermodal terminals the advantage of automatically captured images, accurate identification data, and accelerated processes to enhance operational productivity and to improve terminal’s services.

Rail OCR Portal captures high-quality images in any environmental condition

Visy Rail OCR Portal utilizes Visy’s industry-leading OCR and AI software with line scan cameras, laser scanners, and efficient illuminators. The solution captures highquality images in any environmental condition, regardless of possible dirt or damages, even with speeds of up to 70 km/h. The gathered data is validated by OCR software to hit high rates in recognition accuracy. High-quality images provide access to retrospective inspection and keeping a record of the condition of containers, therefore helping rail terminal operators shed liabilities for containers that arrive damaged.
