Asia Vision applies leading OCR technology to the yard, quayside, and gate of the container terminals. The high-speed cameras are installed on the yard cranes, quay cranes or at container gates to capture container images and/or vehicle license plates, enable users to monitor the crane or gate activities from the office remotely. It reduces worker manpower at gates and under the quay cranes where is known as one of the most unsafe working areas in the terminal. As Ms. Miao said, with Asia Vision’s technology (especially the newly developed ‘Ship bay position identification technology’), human intervention would be kept at the minimum, hence the performance and efficiency at the gate, yard and quayside could be increased significantly.
