Chronopost installs camera based identification systems at the HUB in Chilly-Mazarin

Chronopost uses camera-based identification technology.

Chronopost uses camera-based identification technology.

After performing extensive comparison tests, the French logistics company Chronopost decided in favor of the camera-based identification technology from Vitronic. In its new distribution center in Chilly-Mazarin/France, up to 30,000 packages per hour are sorted at during peak times.

In total two tilt-tray sorters each use two VIPAC systems. Five cameras per system automatically read barcodes and two-dimensional codes (Datamatrix and PDF417) on five sides of the package at conveyor speeds of 2.5m/s (490fpm). This is possible thanks to the – amongst other factors – very fast and dynamic focusing of the high-speed line scan camera VICAMssi which adapts itself in real time to any package orientation. In addition, Chronopost has also implemented the user-friendly archiving system. It is used for analysis of the NoReads and offers the possibility for optimization of the reading rates.
Chronopost International is a subsidiary of the French La Poste Group and operates across Europe as an express service provider. The new hub in Chilly-Mazarin is to become the main distribution centre in France. Increasingly more logistics centres are being fitted with the most up-to-date technology. The identification systems from Vitronic contribute substantially to an increased level of automation.

Vitronic are international leaders in the packaging vision technology market. Vitronic specialises in providing advanced technological solutions to a broad range of markets, such as logistics, traffic technology, and industrial automation.

It comprises a system that utilizes extensive image processing, to provide a state-of-the-art solution for multi-sided packet identification. Offering a 100% read rate and much faster than conventional barcode scanners, it makes parcel tracking easy.
