RMG-CAM: automated identification of containers during Rail Mounted Gantry crane operations
Crane OCR on Rail Mounted Gantry cranes
Camco’s RMG-CAM system automatically captures, identifies and registers containers during handling by RMG cranes. Data and images are captures without disrupting crane operations. Seamless TOS integration ensures that the data is instantly sent to the TOS, ultimately improving operational efficiency. OCR read rates are high, keeping operator exception jobs to a minimum. Camco’s RMG-CAM crane OCR solution is highly accurate and engineered for reliability, high availability and easy maintenance.
Camco’s RMG-CAM enables increased terminal efficiency and safety, while reducing operating costs, human errors, and time per transaction.
A typical setup is based on a pair of high-end industrial high-speed cameras fixed onto the RMG crane legs. With unobstructed views towards the container’s flight path, the cameras will capture images of each passing container’s front and rear. These images are immediately processed on the cameras and image analysis results are sent to the TOS for further use. Integration with the crane control system ensures correct triggering. To support 24/7 operations in all weather conditions, the cameras are equipped with built-in LED light projectors.
Processed container data include the container ID, ISO code, seal presence, door direction and dangerous goods labels. All standard container sizes are supported: 20/40/45 feet.
