In 1990, Dr John Lee, the founder of Asia Vision, developed the world’s first container number recognition system (CNRS) when he was working in the National University of Singapore as a researcher and he successfully applied container number recognition system to the Port of Singapore Authority.  Integrating research on computer vision and neural network technology, Dr Lee developed the intelligent recognition systems.  He has then focused on artificial intelligence systems and developed Hong Kong’s first robot successfully while he was a professor at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology in 1993.

In 1997, Dr Lee applied the intelligent recognition technology (VECON) to the commercial market and Asia Vision became the first developer and supplier of intelligent recognition technology in Hong Kong.

Asia Vision’s license plate number intelligent recognition technology has been granted US patents (Patent No.: 6026177) in 2000 and Container Number Smart Identification Technology (US Patent No. 8,189,919 B2) in 2012. So far, with the continuous development and efforts of Asia Vision technical team, Asia Vision intelligent solutions have covered more than 70 countries and regions in the world and are applied in vehicle management and road safety, parking management, fleet management, city bayonet, toll roads and highways, speed monitoring, as well as port and container terminal logistics management, inventory management and container damage detection management.
