Duss, Germany’s largest inland terminal operator for intermodal rail-road transport will integrate Camco Technologies’ truck OCR systems for gate automation in its terminals in Frankfurt, Hamburg, Leipzig and Stuttgart.
The Camco Technologies AI based image recognition technology will register in and outgoing trucks, containers and semi-trailers. Built-in AI processors will analyse images on the camera speeding up data availability, leaving out the need for separate AI servers, a statement read.
The captured data includes truck LPR, container number, ISO code, IMDG placards, seal presence, door orientation as well as container weight.
The Camco hardware and Gate Operating System or GOS will integrate into the Duss owned BLU Terminal Operating System.
Andreas Schultz, CEO, Duss, said, “We are permanently investing in the automation and digitisation of our combined rail-road transport infrastructure.
“The gate automation project is another important building block on the way to automating the entire transport process and towards Terminal 4.0. We are convinced that Camco truck OCR technology can improve efficiency, capacity and quality of our services.”
Jan Bossens, CEO Camco Technologies, also commented, “Combined transport is one of the strongest growth markets in all freight transport.
“Duss is one of the largest inland terminal operators in Europe and connecting continental Europe in all directions. We are delighted to get on board and to be able to demonstrate the added value of our systems for the DUSS terminals”.
