Accu-Sort Systems introduces a software option for its AV6010 camera bar-code scanner. The Accu-Sort Side-by-Side Detection System minimizes mis-shipments, eliminating the need for manual detection and handling of closely spaced cartons that could otherwise be mistaken for a single package in an automated warehouse system. The Accu-Sort Side-by-Side Detection System provides accuracy and performance by correctly identifying side-by-side packages using a unique three-in-one approach to detection.
Unlike other approaches to side-by-side package detection, the new software combines three types of information from three different sources in the AccuVision AV6010 camera bar-code system.
Typically, as packages move down a conveyor, bar-code systems detect each package separately based on the space between them. However, if two packages are located side by side on the conveyor, bar-code systems can mis-identify them as a single package. The new software is designed to reduce that risk through a more systematic approach to detection. When the optional Side-by-Side Detection software is enabled, the AV6010 system measures the height of side-by-side packages, detects the outer edges of items, determines if more than one package is present, and then reads the package bar codes.
An Optimization Tool included with the Side-by-Side Detection System allows users to analyze results and then adjust detection thresholds to improve accuracy. This is especially beneficial in settings where package characteristics change over time.
