SeeContainer product line
SeeContainer Container Code Recognition (CCR) Product line consists of recognition systems and software
that tracks, reads and checks Shipping Container identification markings.
The SeeContainer product line
SeeGate : Stand alone system, which
recognizes the Container(s) ID, the truck plate and optionally the
Wagon/Chassis numbers. In this configuration (as in the above photo) the
system interfaces to the cameras and sensors, processes the information
and outputs the results via Windows DDE messages to other Windows
applications, log file or network. About 100 such systems are in
operation in USA.
A second generation
system, SeeGate2, is now deployed in several terminals in Europe. This
system has a compact footprint, color imagery for container recognition,
additional top views, damage inspection and IMO label recognition.
SeeCrane : Crane identification
system; automatically reads and records the container ISO code number as
it is handled by a crane. Dozens of such systems are in operation in
Container recognition system on single rail tracks, for Terminal
portals, and slow/medium speed trains. The system reads container codes
on single or double stack levels, and also reads railcar RFID tags.
SeeTrain systems are operating in several terminals.
Containers on multiple track double-stacked fast speed train, for
Order for World's largest port recognition project was successfully supplied
in 2002 to a Container Terminal operator in California, USA. The project includes 56 SeeGate systems
which perform Truck, Container and Chassis Identification. This installation followed an installation and order for
29 Portal and Pedestal recognition systems received from another
Terminal operator Company (some of the lanes shown above), and 10
Additionally, new orders
are now being installed in 7 additional terminals - with over 250 Portal
and Pedestal SeeGate systems, 49 SeeCrane systems and several SeeTrain
This total number of recognition
systems makes Hi-Tech Solutions a Worldwide leader in the number of
installed systems, as well as proven quality and experience.
The second generation,
SeeGate2, are installed since Oct 2005 in several terminals in Europe.

The SeeContainer products integration and hierarchy is shown in the following illustration. It consists of
four levels in bottom up order: hardware (specialized cameras and illumination units, sensors and more),
libraries (Windows or Linux), applications (e.g., SeeGate) and database/networking (SeeData).
The blocks in each level are products or components that we offer. The top fifth level is a set of possible
customer applications and systems that can utilize the building blocks offered by the product line.
Most applications are customer specific and need some level
of adaptation. We supply full tools and components to simplify the
adaptation to the site-specific requirements.
We also offer a set of
Networking and Maintenance Utilities that provide
additional tools for building applications, maintaining and operating them.
