One-Stop Place for Railway OCR
Intermodal Train OCR operations are now critical components of the global supply chain. Many shipping companies and their partners have begun to use intermodal transport options in an effort to reduce costs to their customers and the environmental impact of cargo traffic by leveraging the tracking technology solutions implemented by many European and North American railroads and freight operators.
Suraj Informatics Rail OCR Portal assists in dealing with this recent growth by utilizing proven automation systems to increase productivity while lowering operating costs. The Rail OCR Portal is the next step in providing significantly improved tracking and identification of containerized cargo moving by rail.
How Does IT Work–
Railway OCR software, which allows operators to process every train passage, has been developed. Operational and input issues can be corrected using saved images. After all of the data has been checked, the Train OCR software sends everything to the system, resulting in a fully integrated system that creates a rapid, precise, and safe rail handling system.
The departing Rail terminal gives a list of all loaded trains and containers ahead of time. This list is matched to the data read by the cameras on the rail ocr portal so that a specific train number can be linked to a specific passage under the rail portal and the exact location of each container can be returned on an identified railcar.
This identifies, tracks, and archives the image and equipment number information of a passing train using trackside AEI readers, high-resolution CCTV cameras, and other Train OCR software. All of this information is gathered and combined to create a fully automated container-to-railcar association that eliminates the need for manual train inventories or Track Standing Orders (TSO). Furthermore, Rail OCR Software can capture damage inspection images, allowing for the verification of equipment condition and damage during arrival and departure.
The OCR Railway Portal is outfitted with SIPL’s renowned camera systems and MOTORS, and it is constantly being expanded with new sensors. When a train passes through the camera train portal, high-quality images are produced by the line boxes on the left, right, and top sides of each container, while optional area scans line up on the front and back of the container. The container number, ISO code, non-ISO container number, chassis, and railcar number, IMDG and seal presence, and door direction are all collected in the Train OCR data.
Additional Railway OCR functions, such as the recognition and reading of coding diagrams as well as dangerous goods and labels, are provided in a second phase.
In addition, a Train OCR gate will be installed in the Railway OCR Terminal’s check-in area. This simplifies procedures and allows for faster registration of incoming and outgoing trucks.
Suraj Informatics Rail OCR Portal Solution System enables running train operation, stops, and shunting without delaying or impeding operational processes. It also supports dual-track trains and double-stacked containers.
