The problem: traceability and manual inventory of granite blocks
Kaleido has to manually check incoming and outgoing blocks from 5 different suppliers. There is no standardisation in their letter and number structure, and the blocks are marked manually from a spray or stencil, which adds an additional challenge for reading. This leads to an increase in errors and revision time. Therefore, it needs a solution to automate the traceability of granite blocks for entry (import) and exit (export) at the Port of Vigo. Its objective is the detection and reading of alphanumeric codes on stone and granite blocks.
The solution: Mobile APK with integrated reading models
In response to Kaleido’s need, AllRead developed a solution capable of reading letters and numbers independently of their structure from a mobile device.
It was detected that there were up to 16 varieties of code and tested with 3 different suppliers to configure our technology, from which more than 800 images were identified and read to prepare the fine-tuning of the solution.
Field tests were carried out with the APK with the same suppliers, the minimum target result was to achieve 80% reading accuracy, which was exceeded with 87% accuracy.
Key Factors: Readability with just a mobile phone
At the end of the project, AllRead offered:
As next phases, AllRead will deliver to the client its software in an SDK solution, which will be able to read these blocks offline and with compatible integration to the native mobile application used by Kaleido. The benefits generated by the project include:
