CAMCO Technologies and Tideworks Technology Bring Terminal Gate Procedures to a Higher Level

(PRWEB) January 23, 2005

Tideworks Technology is the leading provider of full-service terminal management and planning software solutions for terminal operators, and CAMCO Technologies is the expert company providing innovative, market-leading Automatic Gate solutions for marine and railway terminals worldwide.

The combination of Tideworks’ GateVison™ solution with the innovative SuperGate OCR solution of Camco proved to be a very powerful offer providing a flexible, modular gate system that helps terminal operators accelerate gate activity, minimize truck processing time, and maximize user productivity.

The first results of this close collaboration are now visible with the successful implementation of this integrated solution at Pier A and Pacific Container Terminal (PCT) in Long Beach. In 2005 additional implementation projects are scheduled in Oakland and Seattle.

GateVison and SuperGate: a powerful combination

A combination of software and hardware components, GateVision effectively integrates into one user interface three key components of the gate transaction: voice communication between the trucker and the marine clerk; digital video information; and Mainsail, the Terminal Operating System (TOS). GateVision users are able to effortlessly collect truck, container, chassis and associated equipment data from the Camco SuperGate camera systems. This allows terminal operators to move marine clerks from the sometime hazardous and noisy gate lanes and place them in a safer and more comfortable office environment (often referred to as a "kitchen").

The digital cameras that are used are specifically designed and developed by Camco to capture high resolution images of containers, chassis and tractor licenses. Camco uses two different types of cameras:


Line scan cameras for scanning at high speed and resolution

the surface of the vehicle and container(s)

Area Scan camera for taking images of the front and rear of vehicles and container(s)

The captured images are used to record the exact condition of containers when entering or leaving the terminal; and to process the OCR recognition of container/ chassis codes and license plate numbers.

Every camera unit comprises not only the digital camera sensor but also an embedded computer that executes all the CPU intensive tasks (taking the image, compressing it into JPEG format, and OCR processing) making the need to install Windows-based PC’s close to the cameras obsolete and increasing the overall reliability. The OCR engines run on separate processors that communicate temporary results between each other. By using this parallel processing Camco can process the OCR of container/ chassis codes and license plates at an unparalleled speed, enabling extremely rapid truck throughput( approx. 35 Mph), and even allowing a continuous traffic flow of trucks during peak times. Trucks can drive through the OCR portals almost bumper to bumper.

Besides the speed, the OCR recognition that Camco supports is also extremely accurate, because it has a very good control over several parameters:

Quality of images. The sharper the images of the codes, the better the OCR will be. This is also one of the reasons why Camco decided to develop its own digital cameras: they need to be capable of capturing high resolution images of moving vehicles with variable speeds and in all different weather conditions (sun, rain, fog…)

Excellent speed measurement system to trigger the cameras at the exact moment

Quantity of reading spots. It is only by combining as many reading spots as possible (the container code can normally be found at 6 different locations on a container) that OCR recognition rates above 90% can effectively be reached.

It is this combination of different parameters plus the straightforward and simple design that makes the SuperGate OCR solution of Camco so powerful and accurate.

Pier A and PCT: increased gate operation capacity

In a joint effort Tideworks and Camco were able to deploy consecutively 4 (Pier A) and 7 (PCT) SuperGate OCR portals and integrate the captured data and images with GateVision and Mainsail in a very short timeframe, and with minimal interruption to the day-to-day terminal operations.

The OCR system as developed and deployed by the Tideworks-Camco partnership is proving to be the fastest in the market, with the ability to process over 500 trucks per hour, per OCR portal. The OCR system is also extremely accurate, with accuracy in excess of 98 percent and 95 percent for container number and chassis number, respectively.

Jence Incorporated Releases NineSYNC, a Server Level Database Synchronization Web Services Software

(PRWEB) February 3, 2005

NineSYNC is a database synchronization web services program. This database synchronization program allows heterogeneous databases to synchronize target database with source database. A comprehensive mapper allows the user to select the tables and datatypes of the source and map them to the target database.

NineSYNC Difference

NineSYNC differentiation is it is a web service. The advantage of web service is that it works over firewall using HTTP/HTTPS protocol. The program will reside on a server anywhere in the world and controlled by client programs. Another added advantage of using a web service is that the program is callable by any web services enabled application regardless of the language used to develop it. NineSYNC does not require that the source and target database exist on the server where NineSYNC is installed. The source and target databases are seen as IP addresses with a user name and password. The web service will remotely connect the two databases using those addresses.

Supported Databases

SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle, Postgresql, DB2.

Mapper Feature

The mapper interface may be able to map data types of source database to target database on a column by column basis. The only restriction is that the primary keys have to be identical.

Periodic Scheduling

NineSYNC may be set up for periodic synchronization daily, weekly or monthly.

Stop and Pause Mode

This allows you to pause database synchronization and then resume at your will. If the synchronization is paused, then when resumed, the web service continues from where it left off, if the source database has not changed.

Report Generation and Log Files

Log files are created for each synchronization. The log files are XML based and the web service client have the option to generate HTML report from the log file.

Client Graphical User Interface

The web service also comes with a client graphical user interface, which includes a mapper interface, user login, account creation screen, database synchronization scheduler. Future version will also have a file synchronization interface.

Operation

The web service called NineSYNC appears as a URL string. The client contacts the URL using this string and fetches the WSDL file, which describes how the web services need to be used. The client makes the calls described in the WSDL to communicate with the web service. Once connection is made, the client simply calls the routines synchronously to the web service. When the synchronization starts, the client may logout without terminating the synchronization operation. The client may later come login and check the status of the operation. Log files and mapper file may be printed or viewed on a web browser.

Server Requirements

1. Apache Tomcat v5.5, Sun Appserver 8, IBM Websphere, or other compatible Java App Servers compatible with servlet 2.3 specification.

2. Minimum 1 GB RAM. Ram requirements may increase for larger databases. One million row synchronization requires at least 1 GB.

3. Java Virtual Machine 1.4.1 required.

4. At least one of the following databases required for user management: MySql, Oracle, SqlServer, Postgress, DB2. Sybase, Informix and Derby will be supported soon.

5. High speed internet connection is needed.

6. Valid IP address need for source and target databases.

Clent Requirements

1. Java Virtual Machine 1.4 or above required.

2. No minimum memory requirements, but at least 64 MB RAM recommended.

3. High speed internet connection is not required, but recommended.

Sales and Support
