GateCCR - ISO Container Recognition for Ports
GateCCR uses advanced IP cameras, megapixel sensors and neural network processing for highly accurate reading of container numbers and truck license plates at access points, plus damage control images and videos using Optical Character Recognition.
The CCR software is designed to integrate with TOS and other terminal control systems. ISO code readings, images and other data can be transmitted in real time from each gate access log through the most widely-used communication protocols, including SQL and WebServices. Orbita’s XML interface facilitates even greater integration.
OCR-based automation for fast and efficient gates GateCCR Offered as an option to complement GateCCR, the GateIMDG module identifies dangerous goods labels and placards mounted on the container. GateIMDG is able to detect and identify containers with multiple labels and provide the IMDG class and sub-class to which each label belongs. While dangerous goods signs are usually placed on the rear, GateIMDG can also detect labels on both sides of the container.
GateOS - Terminal Gate Operating Software
GateOS gate operating software enables remote management and automated operation of access control points, including robust integration with TOS software.
GateOS manages and stores information from the truck admission and exit process and effortlessly shares it with the terminal’s TOS through XML interfaces, WebServices and other common communication protocols. GateOS also includes drivers for communication with similar systems from other manufacturers.
TOS integration includes the management of TOS events inside GateOS, providing a single interface that gives operators control over almost every event related to gate operation from just one screen and software system. The result is a complete command and control centre for gate operations, reducing training, IT infrastructure and event resolution times.
GateTRAFFIC - Automated Traffic Management at Port Access Points
GateTRAFFIC combines software and hardware for fully automated traffic management at access points, improving the flow of vehicles and reinforcing gate security measures.
Bringing together all of the physical elements and information systems needed for robust traffic control, GateTraffic is highly flexible to suit multiple operational requirements. It is the perfect complement to GateCCR and GateOS and, when combined, these three modules provide a total solution for access point automation. GateTraffic includes a fail-safe mode of operation, ensuring that traffic management can be rapidly converted back to manual control in case of need.
Features and Benefits
Streamlines vehicle flow through entry and exit gates.
Reduces truck waiting times, queues and congestion.
Improves personnel safety.
Reduces operational costs.
Integrates easily with all commercial traffic control equipment.
GateLPR - Automated License Plate Recognition
ateLPR provides automatic vehicle license plate recognition for access control in parking areas, tolls and restricted zones.
GateLPR is a PC-based system that is easily integrated with other software applications and automated systems via the majority of common communication protocols, including WEBServices, SQL Server and XML interface. Based on artificial neural networks, GateLPR is designed to provide a high level of speed and reliability in the most demanding climatic conditions. The system is complemented by the OrbitaLPR software, a configuration tool that incorporates a display of historical vehicle license plate images and a calibration interface for simpler maintenance.
Features and Benefits
Automates recognition of vehicle license plate numbers from multiple countries.
Improves facility security, safety and operational effectiveness.
Easy to install, learn how to use and operate.
High reliability, availability and recognition rates under the most demanding climatic
GateKIOSK - Control cabinet for vehicle access to ports & terminals.
GateKIOSK is a customisable control cabinet with various driver interfaces for efficient administration of facility admission and exit functions.
GateKiosk automates log-in operations, speeds processing times and reduces the need for terminal staff intervention. The system provides traceability of driver operations, minimises waiting times in the lanes and facilitates incidence management by the staff or via TOS.
With multiple interfaces for incoming and outgoing information, GateKiosk allows information to be received from, and sent to the driver in real time directly from the TOS or other software applications, without the need for any intermediaries.
Features and Benefits
Robust cabinet designed for use in extreme humidity, temperature and dust conditions
Ergonomic design facilitates driver operation from within a truck cab.
Height adjustable to suit the majority of gate infrastructure configurations.
Modular, configurable choice of driver interface systems – bar code, RFID tag, VoIP intercom,
LCD touch screen, printer and more.
Side gates simplify maintenance and access to equipment and systems.
CraneCCR | Automated Container Identification for STS Cranes by Orbita Ingenieria
CraneOCR uses the latest pan, tilt and zoom cameras, plus state-of-the-art control algorithms, to accurately capture container ID numbers, images and other key data during vessel handling operations.
By replacing the manual chore of identifying containers at the quay with automated vision technology, CraneCCR helps terminal operators to increase speed, eliminate human errors and enhance the overall process performance of STS cranes. CraneCCR integrates with Orbita CraneOS to provide 100% remote handling of exceptions and events, with full TOS integration for improved user control of the process. Return on investment happens from the first day of operation: in improved container identification accuracy, real-time error detection and resolution, better container damage process control, and removal of checking personnel from the quay area.
This innovative method of acquiring OCR data in motion allows users to automate container identification on the quayside with minimum infrastructure – as few as 4 cameras are required – and no impact on STS Crane cycle times. With every container movement, CraneCCR stores and sends relevant information to the TOS, performing online manifest validation for container ISO codes.
