General description of ACCR
To keep tracking of containers in the logistic and inventory management systems container codes are used for identification. Automatic Container Code Recognition is a technology which is able to recognize these unique codes from an image or video signal, and give it back in a computer editable format for further processing.
The CCR is an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) based technology, which means intelligent image processing.
It has two essential technological issues.
The key factor: the container code recognition software
The very key factor is the CCR software. The sophistication of the recognition software, the intelligence and quality of the applied recognition algorithms, the mathematical knowledge and the years of experience behind determines the capabilities of the recognition software. The better the algorithms are, the highest the quality of the recognition software is:
About ISO 6346 container codes (BIC codes)
In a well working system the codes are standardized. ISO 6346 (known as BIC codes too) is an international standard for assigning unique codes to freight containers.
The structure of an ISO 6346 code is
The category identifier consists one of the following three capital letters:
