Timber layers count automation with mobile app

Technology

The goal of a timber holding company was to improve accounting and control systems for lumber production by precisely counting their in-stock building materials.

To do this, the Customer decided to automate the counting by using a visual recognition mobile application. They began by researching COTS (Commercial Off-The-Shelf) products but found they lacked the preciseness needed for measurements and could not adjust to environmental conditions typical in a warehouse, such as uneven light and uneven stacks or dust.

The appropriate course of action was to develop a custom application.

First Line Software created a visual recognition algorithm and with it developed a customized mobile app to count sheet materials.

The functionality

  1. The user points the smartphone camera at the stack of materials

    Timber layers visual recognition

  2. The application recognizes the plywood in the photo, counts the layers, and informs the user of the result (the number of layers in the stack).

    Layers of plywood automatically are counted with the mobile app

Technology

For the algorithmic part: C ++, algorithms underlying digital photo filters, numerical methods of mathematical analysis, methods of statistics.

For the application: mobile development technology using Android SDK.

The Team

A software developer with strong algorithmic skills supported by the Quality Assurance team and working under the direct supervision of a delivery director.

The Result

This pilot project delivered to our client an effective and cost-saving tool for managing timber products.
