CARMEN DOT - US DOT (USDOT) Number Recognition Software Library & SDK


The CARMEN DOT is an automatic USDOT number recognition software which extracts and reads the USDOT number of a CMV (Commercial Motor Vehicle) from captured images. This technology enables traffic and security systems to automatically identify and verify commercial vehicles.

A system embedded with CARMEN DOT becomes capable of automatically recognizing the USDOT numbers of CMVs. Automatic recognition permits the monitoring of traffic of commercial vehicles, either transporting passengers or hauling cargo, in controlled areas like: state borders, commercial parking locations, weigh in motion stations, logistic and fleet areas. Collecting audit, inspection and compliance information or enforcement and monitoring of safety and security regulations are facilitated by the CARMEN DOT technology.

Transportation authorities can increase the efficiency of their road inspections with the rapid USDOT registration number recognition functions of CARMEN DOT. Fleet management applications will have additional advantages especially when CARMEN DOT is applied together with CARMEN LPR technology. All trucks will be registered at secured location entry and exit points. Controllers will be able to get exact data on vehicle movements. Authorities will have the option to check against state and federal databases in real time for key information of the carrier and cargo. Such a system allows for quick retrieval of valuable data from commercial vehicle inspections, and verifies record and license compliance.

The USDOT number is the fundamental identifier of CMVs in the USA; therefore, automatic recognition of these numbers is essential for all traffic systems.*

CARMEN DOT is a recognition software engine and a comprehensive image recognition library that is used to add fast and highly accurate automatic USDOT identification and recognition capabilities to monitoring products and systems of vehicle identification.

*"Companies that operate commercial vehicles transporting passengers or hauling cargo in interstate commerce must be registered with the FMCSA and must have a USDOT Number. Also, commercial intrastate hazardous materials carriers who haul quantities requiring a safety permit must register for a USDOT Number. The USDOT Number serves as a unique identifier when collecting and monitoring a company's safety information acquired during audits, compliance reviews, crash investigations, and inspections."
