Data Extraction From An Image
One of Germany’s largest gas transmission companies was faced with the mammoth regulatory requirement of cataloguing and recording its full asset register onto a digital platform. This needed to cover around 30 compressor stations with multiple legacy types of equipment as well as their whole gas pipeline.
Unitek.ai’s successfully won a competition where its technology was selected to provide this solution.
The metal plates which contained the data relating to specific parts were photographed. However, there was a challenge in that the images were supplied by multiple people and the quality of the image and data recorded varied quite significantly. Through the Unitek platform the extraction of data was automated and the use of the Unitek.ai app ensured that any image quality issues are eliminated and that there is no requirement to process images before they are consumed by the platform. Getting it right the first time, every time, this accelerated the document processing time.
