The solution saw Hikvision technology used in an innovative way. Cameras were placed on the front and back of each forklift, and a mobile NVR in each vehicle. These capture the images of each container as they are loaded on and off the truck - using the tracking number to identify it. The fleet of vehicles totals 24, so this meant 24 Mobile Wi-Fi enabled NVRs (DS-M5504HNI) and 48 Mobile Network cameras (DS-2X6622FWDI).
This data is transmitted by Wi-Fi from the forklift to the SAN server, which can store the images for future use. The system is managed through Hikvision’s iVMS 5200 software, which allows users to search the database of images, in case they need to find, or track, a specific tracking number.
The SAN server also makes it possible for a recording to be created, even if the Wi-Fi signal is cut off. It will resume the recording from the place where it was interrupted.
