GettyImages-840457970 parcel sorting

Machine vision technologies play an important role in the automated sorting of parcels in parcel centers. One of the most important applications is the use of Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology. This enables the system to recognize and read the address on the parcel and then route it to the correct department. This technology uses algorithms that are capable of recognising and classifying characters on an image by analyzing the geometric properties of the letters and the distribution of the pixels.
