Automatic rail vehicle identification and uic codes recognition system.

The project aim is to research and develop system for an automatic detection and recognition of identification characters of rail vehicles moving at high speeds.

Rail transportation is economically viable and traditional form of public and goods transport. As green mode of transport are more ecological, it can be expected to further enhance its’ potential. As the monopoly is opened up to competition, it becomes more important to be able to continuously check the operators and their rolling stock. One of the reasons is to detect potentially dangerous rail vehicles, prevent damage to the rail infrastructure and extend its lifespan preventing unexpected maintenance and repairs costs. Rail vehicle identification UIC codes (also coach or wagon numbers) represent an essential data for railway operators, infrastructure companies and responsible government authorities. Presently, most of European countries do not have an integrated rail vehicles monitoring system, so the rail vehicles identification data will be beneficial for railway operators and administrators. The project aim is to research and develop full system for an automatic detection and recognition of identification characters of rail vehicles moving at high speeds.
