Gate Empty Inspection
When arriving at the gate, clerks are required to verify the inside of containers. In addition to storing empty containers on the yard, terminal operators are also responsible for the inspection of empty containers. For this purpose the container empty check is developed. This solution optimizes the handlings by having remote clerks perform the tasks instead of having clerks within the gate lanes. The system utilizes a high-resolution camera together with illumination, mounted to a lane entry barrier.
The system forms an integral part of the Automated Gate solution, where the driver is instructed via the Gate Kiosk to have its container opened. The GOS will store images of the container interior and the remote gate clerk will be able to provide instructions to the driver via remote VOIP communication.
