24/7 real-time optical recognition of UIC numbers on the side or chassis of wagons, railway platform, and tank cars, with a single consolidated recognition result for each wagon.
Intlab UIC is a software development kit (SDK) for third-party integration of optical detection and recognition of UIC wagon numbers (used in the EU and other countries with 1435 mm track guage). The module supports 24/7 recognition of numbers on all types of locomotives, passenger wagons, freight wagons, platforms, and tank cars in a broad range of external conditions. The module can recognize numbers in individual images as well as video steams from analog or digital sources. The module provides the best quality recognition when used with a video stream, since the results received from individual frames taken from different cameras are analyzed and combined using complex algorithms to form a single result for each car. Since the wagon number appears on both sides and on the chassis, the best recognition results are obtained using 2 to 4 cameras.
