Real-time UIC Code Recognition Software.

VaxOCR UIC is Vaxtor’s OCR software solution for the recognition of the International Union of Railways Wagon and Coach numbers commonly called UIC codes or numbers.

The detection and recognition of rolling stock enables automated solutions to facilitate the tracking of assets, improving health and safety, increasing the monitoring and control. 

Running embedded or on PC-based systems, UIC numbers are read as they pass a capture point.

The OCR Engine for UIC Code recognition is 100% proprietary and takes advantage of the current integration and reporting capabilities offered by VaxALPR series products including Milestone & Genetec VMS and many more.
