Automatic Vehicle Identification (AVI)

Detect the presence and the unique identification of vehicles instantly with automatic vehicle identification and automatically, providing notifications and alerts to systems downstream.

Automatic Vehicle Identification

Automatic Vehicle Indentification (AVI) systems offer the ability to detect the presence of vehicles instantly and automatically – together with their unique identity. This information can be used to simply log movements over time, or the Coriel platform can provide notifications and alerts to systems downstream – allowing people or software systems to prepare for the pending arrival.

Typical applications of AVI include rail and freight identification, electronic toll collection, gate access/automation & yard management, all of which can be combined with a variety of sensing technologies to combine accurate vehicle identification with visual damage/condition assessments, weigh, direction of travel and much more.

What’s the purpose of Automatic Vehicle Identification?

Automatic Vehicle Identification allows you to intelligently manager your fleet of vehicles and make informed decisions with the use of data that will help you reduce your costs and optimise your people.

Streamline maintenance depots

With AVI readers positioned at strategic points down the road, track or at pinch points throughout a site, maintenance depot staff and systems can ready themselves for the pending arrival of the vehicle, ensuring staff, tools and parts are ready to go. This allows for vehicles to be serviced at speed, getting them back into service as soon as possible, reducing downtime and saving huge amounts.

Automatically trigger third-party systems

Our AVI solution can be used to automatically trigger and provide identification information to a range of third-party systems such as weigh scales, fault detection camera systems or maintenance tools, providing the critical link between the sensed information and the vehicle itself.  Read our Alstom case study as an example of this system in action.

Record vehicle combinations

Within the rail & freight industry, rarely does and engine pass a given location without towing a collection of passenger carriages, freight, trailers and containers – each of which can be identified using their own RFID tag. Tagging each major vehicle allows the Coriel platform to report the complete combination identified, together with the order in which they passed a given point of interest.

Where is this solution being used?

Why our customers choose us?

We have a deep understanding of the complex issues around identifying, monitoring and digitally tracking vehicles in typically challenging industrial applications such as the rail industry, where vehicles are usually travelling at speed, spend most of their time outdoors and are often exposed to dirt, chemicals and oils. Providing reliable AVI solutions in these harsh condition is where we excel.

Success Stories

Take a look at some of our client stories where we have eased some of the operational challenges they were facing. If you have a project that you would like to discuss, please do not hesitate to contact us.

The Alstom TrainScanner system quickly analyses the condition of critical parts on engines, carriages and freight vehicles as they drive though the portal. Coriel provide the critical identification technology for this project.

VTG manage over 95,000 railcars within their wagon hire fleet using solutions from Coriel that help ensure each car is inspected & maintained to the highest standard for their customers.

Coriel work extensively with the Network Rail team to provide the item-level passive RFID tags applied to their fleet of engines, carriages and freight vehicles. These identification devices are then used by partners across the world.
