TOC Asia is part of a global portfolio of events that bring together stakeholders of the container supply chain to learn, debate and network
As you may know, TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage.
Dr. John Lee (CEO) and Ken Wong (CTO) together with their senior executives will participate the subject event. Asia Vision will also set up a booth to display our products and solutions for ports and container terminals.
Time: April 24-25, 2018 Location: Marina Bay Sands, Singapore Our booth: H08
2017 TOC Europe was held in Amsterdam RAI Exhibition and Convention Center 27-29 June 2017. Ms. Kira Miao, General Manager of Asian Vision, together with her sales team, were invited to participate this event. Focusing on the container terminal automation industry, Asia Vision’s delegates had extensive and fruitful discussions with the leaders and experts of the terminal industry from around the world.
As one of the world’s leading OCR product providers, Asia Vision displayed the ‘multi-countries’ license plate recognition product which is already well-known in the European market and container number recognition products for terminals and ports operation, such as e-Gate Solution, Quay Crane Management (QCM) for Quayside Intelligent Tally operation and the latest ‘state of the art’ — Bay Position Identification for container ships. Asia Vision’s advanced products attracted many audiences and received numerous inquiries.
AVT’s OCR systems of Quayside Intelligent Tally Solution consist of hardware and software components that are easy to install. Features include:
Container Number Recognition
Empty Container Detection
Container Damage Detection
Container Door Direction Detection
Hazardous Label Detection
Terminal Tractor Numbers Detection
Container Seal Intact Detection
Asia Vision applies leading OCR technology to the yard, quayside, and gate of the container terminals. The high-speed cameras are installed on the yard cranes, quay cranes or at container gates to capture container images and/or vehicle license plates, enable users to monitor the crane or gate activities from the office remotely. It reduces worker manpower at gates and under the quay cranes where is known as one of the most unsafe working areas in the terminal. As Ms. Miao said, with Asia Vision’s technology (especially the newly developed ‘Ship bay position identification technology’), human intervention would be kept at the minimum, hence the performance and efficiency at the gate, yard and quayside could be increased significantly.
Ms. Miao also said that automation trend is seen in all industries, and the real value of automation related need to firstly be a problem-solver, which is to help achieve industrial upgrading. Asia Vision is a technology company of computer vision, bringing automation upgrades to all areas.
Asia Vision developed the world’s first container number recognition technology 20 years ago and has been constantly developing and expanding its solutions that are applied to many terminals to upgrade industrial operations.
After this exhibition, the Asia Vision’s delegates also visited the customers in Europe. The leaders and experts from different companies had in-depth exchanges and discussions with Asia Vision.
TOC Europe is the global meeting place for ports, terminals, shipping lines, 3PLs & shippers. TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers.
On April 25 to 26, Asia Vision had set up an exhibition booth for the two day event-TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) Asia, which took place at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. We attracted hundreds of visitors and received numerous inquiries about our products and solutions. The CEO of Asia Vision Technology – Dr. John Lee participated in this event alongside his senior executives.
Asia Vision’s sophisticated OCR technology uses high speed cameras installed on yard cranes, quay cranes or at container gates to capture images of containers or vehicles on-spot and automatically identify container numbers, ISO numbers and vehicle numbers. It then sends the recognized results to the operating system (Terminal Operating System, Gate Operating System or Car Park Management System) for confirmation or verification. With the captured images of the five sided panels of the container, users can also perform damage inspection (CDI) and identify the presence of the Hazardous Label as well as the container seal.
The benefits of applying OCR technology include the reduction of worker manpower at gates and under the quay cranes, which is known to be one of the most unsafe working areas in a terminal. With the OCR system, car park staff and container terminal tallymen at gate or at quayside can now be working in an air-conditioned indoor office environment, monitoring the gate or quayside operation remotely. OCR automatically performs checking on containers and vehicles going in and out at the gate, container movements in the yard stacks, container discharging or loading at quayside with high rate accuracy without interfering with the operation. Necessary components needed to be handled by human intervention are kept at minimum, hence the performance and efficiency at gate, yard and quayside can be increased significantly.
AVT’ s OCR systems include all hardware and software components for direct installation. Optional features include: container number recognition, empty container detection, container damage detection, container door direction detection, hazardous label detection, terminal tractor numbers detection and seal intact detection.
