Visy Oy

Expand Your Vision


Visy Oy specializes in gate automation and access control solutions in four core sectors: ports and terminals, customs agencies and border crossings, intermodal and rail operations and industrial facilities.

Its solutions transform customers’ processes by cutting waste and increasing productivity, with a proven return on investment in as little as six months.

Each day, Visy Oy’s systems manage more than 5 million access and area control decisions in more than 25 countries. Its Alarm Gate, for example, is the longest-running border traffic control system in Europe.

As well as that, the Visy IRS OCR has correctly identified more than 750 million containers, trains, trailers and license plates since the company was founded in 1994.

In the years since its founding, Visy Oy has been developing and delivering innovative IT solutions to industrial facilities.

It has been an innovator in the marine and intermodal markets, with some of its products, its optical character recognition and container number recognition software, for instance, making it a market leader.




Visy Container Recognition

Visy’s container recognition is a state-of-the-art tool that consists of deep neural network image processing algorithms that allow it to automatically extract the container ID and ISO type and size code from the container images. In addition to these, dangerous goods labels and classification, seal presence and door side can be detected.

Visy has a strong background in machine vision algorithms and highly educated signal processing team that keep us on top of the image processing field. Our container recognition is proven to work in various extreme weather conditions ranging from arctic cold to tropic.

The container OCR software tool functions as a natural part of our Gate Operating System, but can be integrated to customers own software package as an individual component. All equipment used for container recognition are commercially off-the-self hardware and the image processing is done on separate centralized OCR computers.
