Ask a question

ARSCIS is a family of solutions that utilize railcar number recognition technology to identify separate railcars, manage product shipping by rail, monitor railcar movement and location, etc. for metrology, logistics, and security purposes.

MORE INFORMATION

Tasks solved

For commodity production and metrology services

  • Reduction of human factor influence on shipment process
  • Documenting of each railcar weighting
  • Reduction of labour consumption and increased speed of shipment
  • Automation of workflow
  • Absence of staff on railway lines

For security services

  • Tracking of railcar location
  • Identification of “suspicious” movements and delays of railcars
  • Detection of changes in car weight
  • Inspection of railcars using thermal vision and laser scanning facilities

For logistics departments and railway shops

  • Inspection of railcars without staff on railway lines
  • Generation of photo and video materials for complaint management
  • Check of railcar displacement and movement
  • Automatic monitoring of time a railcar spends in the premises
  • Check of the geometry of cargos and railcars

Components of the ARSCIS system

ARSCIS performs the following functions:

  • Calculation of number of railcars
  • Generation of image of every railcar
  • Automatic identification of railcar numbers from sides and frame
  • Generation of information on railcars: photo, video, inventory number, speed of passage, date/time, number of axles, type of railcar, etc.
  • Identification of locomotives and their exclusion from reports
  • Acquisition and aggregation of information from scales and other systems
  • Archiving of all information on passing trains
  • Report generation
  • Data transfer to external information systems

Specialized options

  • Recognition in the conditions of railcar reverse motion
  • Identification of ISO container numbers
  • Explosion-proof version of trackside equipment
  • Upper surveillance video camera for monitoring of railcar loading
  • Automatic control of railcar weight changes at return passage (for rail scales)
  • Monitoring of time the railcar spends in the premises, indication of the violation of time allowed
  • Inspection of railcar dimensions
  • Automatic report generation and saving in the enterprise network folder
  • Thermal-imaging shooting
  • Inspection of railcar dimensions
  • Integration with rail scales

Automated workstation (AWS)

Depending on the task solved, ARSCIS system can be completed with an AWS of security and commercial inspection specialist or AWS of railcar scales operator.

AWS of security and commercial inspection specialist

Key functions:

  • Comparison of identified number of each railcar and video record of its passage from several cameras
  • Display of video from several cameras in the video wall format with possibility of flexible adjustment
  • Access to video archive, display of historical information
  • Enhanced set of functions for operation with railcar video archive (display of video at different rates, synchronous display of video from different cameras, still frame expansion, etc.)
  • Speed enforcement
  • Monitoring of serviceability of system hardware and software
  • Sound indication at the start of train passage
  • Assignment of access privileges (administrator, operator, supervisor)
  • Generation and printing of reports
  • Option – display of video of railcar bottom
  • Option – display of video from thermal vision camera
  • Option – automatic monitoring of time a railcar spends in the premises, indication of blacklisted railscar passage, comparison with supplementary sheet, etc.

AWS of rail scales operator

Key functions:

  • Comparison of identified railcar number, weight received from the railcar scales and video record of its passage from several cameras
