Visy Automatic Container Damage Detection System (ADDS) is the first commercially available solution for automatic container damage inspection. The solution uses modern AI software with line scan camera technologies in the gate area and PTZ-cameras in quayside to provide high-quality images and digitize the container condition.
Visy ADDS enhances automation in container terminals with non-stop operations and real-time tool to detect damages in containers.
Condition inspection without interrupting traffic
Visy ADDS automatically recognizes structural and surface deformities in containers, such as dents and bulges, when trucks drive through detection portals or containers are being handled by STS cranes. Trucks no longer need to stop for manual damage inspections, which cuts the time spent at gate transactions and significantly decreases turnaround times. This also allows terminal operators to move manpower from the yard to the office. Visy ADDS can be inserted as a new feature for Visy OCR portals and Visy Crane OCR if automatic detection of other features such as container IDs, ISO codes, dangerous goods labels, door orientation, or seal presence are also required.
Advantages of ADDS
Visy ADDS brings unprecedented advantages for the entire supply chain by automating the container damage detection process. The solution enables real-time inspection of containers, which helps terminal operators shed insurance liabilities and damage claims, and brings invaluable data to container owners. Visy ADDS proactively gathers data and notifies operators of damaged containers, unlike traditional damage detection systems, which only provide images for retrospective reviewing.
