VECON-SRE4CAM is AI camera which uses our breakthrough Deep Learning Technology of Software & Hardware to do real-time full frame rate recognition.  The OCR processing is done inside the camera (Edge Processing).  System integrators can use multiple VECON-SRE4CAM to develop their Container OCR system for Cranes, Top-Handlers, Gates, etc. Car Park system integrators can easily install & deploy the OCR cameras with very less on-site fine-tunning effort which wes the most headache problem during project implementation in the past.

Typical Usages of VECON-SRE4CAM

License Plate Recognition

  1. Traditional vehicle detector trigger and LPR (front or backend OCR)
  2. LPR without vehicle detector
  3. At building gate in/out, simple white list detection and automatic barrier opening
  4. Police Car Patrol of wanted vehicle list detection
  5. Wanted vehicle detection of passing by vehicles at check point
  6. Illegal overtime parking detection at streets
  7. Overtime parking detection of visitor parking at university / estate car parking

Container / ISO Number Recognition

  1. Gate CNR without sensors. Single camera is required for single container while multiple cameras are required for Twin 20’ containers. Additional software development is required.
  2. Crane CNR without sensors. Single camera is required for single container while multiple cameras are required for Twin 20’ containers. Additional software development is required.
  3. Top Handle CNR without sensors. Single camera is required for single container while multiple cameras are required for Twin 20’ containers. Additional software development is required.

Vehicle / Container Detection

Beside OCR, the vehicle / container (without number) can also be detected automatically.  For the cases of damaged LPN or missing Container numbers, images can still be captured.

Vehicle detection with LPN
Container Front detection without number
Container Rear detection without number
Container Side detection without number
