Dangerous Goods Monitoring System
The transport of Dangerous Good by Route is nowadays an important phenomenon to be carefully monitored. Different technical approaches are emerging; Project Automation have designed and implemented a system that doesn’t require equipment to be installed on trucks, allowing to detect every truck moving dangerous goods. The system requires the installation of enhanced cameras, as used for access control at reserved areas, able to gather the rear (or the front) section of every detected truck.
Through OCR, data concerning license plates and the orange plate containing ONU and Kemler codes are decoded and sent, together with the related images, to the control centre as the trick is detected.
At the central level, a software application shows how many trucks with dangerous goods as well as the specific substance detected. For online purposes, this allows the maximum level of awareness in case of accidents; for analysis purposes, it is possible to know Origin/Destination matrices for every substance.
