Computer Vision for reading Hazardous Materials Signage.

edited June 2017 in Discussion

I have vast experience working as a dangerous goods materials handler & I would find it very useful to the industry to be able to read Haz. Mat. Signage on products and shipping boxes.


  • Interesting use-case. Can you quantify the problem?

  • @twing It's a bit challenging to quantify the problem as it is such a broad use case...
    You can see here:
    ...That there were over 3.7 million employed as Hand Labourers and Materials Movers in 2014 in the USA alone...

    This use case is most applicable to freight logistics companies (as per my experience) where everyday Dangerous Goods/Hazardous Materials Handlers can handle up to 1000 cases of Dangerous Goods/Hazardous Materials Packages daily...
    They must identify and sort them appropriately...

    Furthermore this use case would apply to any field that deals with these Dangerous Goods/Hazardous Materials... For example: Construction, Medical, Laboratory, etc..
    I hope this clarification allows you to elaborate further on your interest in the relevant use case.

    Please let me know any specific info. you are looking for and I will do my best to adequate your concerns.

    Thank you.
    Jaswinder Brar.
