Exclusive expert tips, customer stories and more.
Regensburg, 13 February 2020 – At LogiMAT 2020 (Stuttgart Trade Fair Centre) from 10 to 12 March 2020, Dallmeier will showcase a broad portfolio of image-based process optimisation solutions aimed specifically at customers from the intralogistics sector. One example is camera-based "on-the-fly" volume calculation.
Automated volume calculation eliminates manual measurement
One of the great challenges of intralogistics faced by many logistics companies is how to measure a large number of freight goods accurately and efficiently. The purpose is not only to identify incorrect or false information, but most importantly it is also essential to organise the processes so that they are as time-efficient as possible and do not disrupt other important workflows. This is precisely the aspect the automated volume calculation solution developed by Dallmeier is designed to deal with. Special 3D video systems measure the volumes of the freight goods practically instantaneously; the logistics company simply has to define an existing travel path as a measurement section. Exact specifications for the "Dallmeier measuring terminal" ensure maximum precision. Besides the enormous amount of time saved, other advantages of automated volume calculation include optimal utilisation of loading capacities, plausibility checks against reference data, or even coordinated goods inward and outward strategies.
Image-supported process management right from the control centre
The innovative "Panomera®" camera solutions from Dallmeier also offer considerably better control of an enormous range of different processes: From monitoring of production lines to rapid response in the event of failures up to and including much more efficient control of the flow of goods and information or improved claims management. In this regard, the high-performance "Panomera® W" camera series with viewing angles of 180° and 360° offers users the ability to capture even very widely separated spatial contexts right from the control centre with a minimal number of cameras. At the same time, the technology ensures that a resolution sufficient for the required applications is always provided, for documentation that is usable in court or in liability cases, for example, or AI-based video analysis as well. Both the 180° camera view and a panoramic 360° perspective help logistics managers to simplify a large number of processes, such as monitoring logistical release systems.
Real-time control of freight goods
The misplacement of consignments is another known challenge which intralogistics must deal with. The tracking system developed by Dallmeier enables automatic search and locating operations for freight goods to be launched by the automated linking of video images with package item numbers. In this process, the various scan events are synchronised with single-frame accuracy using time servers. This guarantees the prevention of loss claims and increases safety at work. Dallmeier camera systems also offer an efficient capability for determining the condition of the freight goods by means of image documentation at the time of transfer of risk.
Highest quality with video technology "made in Germany"
The patented Panomera® multifocal sensor technology does more than just reduce the number of cameras needed, with the associated infrastructure (masts, cables, network, etc.), it saves cost many times over. In conjunction with various analysis applications – such as AI-based object classification for reducing the incidence of false alarms – it also provides logistics companies with extremely powerful solutions for warehouses, loading and shipping areas as well as perimeter protection. As a German manufacturer, Dallmeier maintains the highest standards, whether they relate to quality, data protection or data security/cybersecurity. Dallmeier’s innovative 3D planning approach also guarantees that the systems will deliver exactly the detection quality required for video recordings to be usable in court. Accordingly, fulfilling TAPA (FSR) requirements presents no difficulty at all.
Dallmeier is the only manufacturer of video security technology that develops and manufactures all components in Germany. This includes the entire product range, from cameras to picture storage and transmission to intelligent video analysis and even individually adjusted management software. Quality made by Dallmeier, made in Germany!
Dallmeier has at its disposal more than 35 years of experience in transmission, recording as well as picture processing technology and is a leading pioneer of CCTV/IP solutions worldwide. This profound knowledge is used in the development of intelligent software and high-quality recorder and camera technologies enabling Dallmeier to not only offer stand-alone systems, but complete network solutions up to large-scale projects with perfectly integrated component. Right from the beginning the company always focused on own innovative developments and highest quality and reliability.
Over the years, Dallmeier has repeatedly given fresh impetus to the market with new developments and extraordinary innovations. The world’s first DVR for example, which introduced digital recording to the entire CCTV industry more than 25 years ago, came from Dallmeier. The introduction of the patented multifocal sensor system Panomera® has had a similarly ground-breaking effect, ushering in a new era for the industry. This unique camera technology is revolutionising the market and opening up completely new possibilities for securing assets, optimising business operations and ensuring public safety. This and the extensive experience in the CCTV and IP field have led to a top position in the international market for digital video surveillance systems.
