Visy TopView – Spreader OCR

Enhance visibility in container handling with spreader OCR

Visy TopView is a spreader OCR camera system that automatically identifies container IDs from the tops of containers. The system is compatible with every container handling equipment type and brand, transforming any spreader into a smart device.

Smart implementation

Visy TopView is a compact system in which all equipment is installed directly on the spreaders, including cameras, illuminators, and the recognition PC. Intelligent container OCR software selects the results to achieve high recognition rates of up to 99.5%, thus verifying that each movement of cargo goes as planned. The system is a reliable partner for terminal operators in container handling processes, as it captures container data in real-time and smoothly exchanges the information with TOS.

TopView can be installed to any type of container handling equipment, including single, tandem, twin, and quad spreaders.

Increase accuracy of operations

With Visy TopView, no container is being stacked or loaded to wrong location regardless of whether the operation commences over vessel, truck, train, or yard. The system increases accuracy of operations by alarming containers that are not found in a crane’s work-order. By confirming each container move with Visy TopView, container handling procedures become more visible and accurate, which brings reliability to moves if exception handling cases occurs.
