Over the last 30 years, bar codes, labels and other marks have been printed on envelopes for the identification of each object throughout the delivery sequence. However, this information has its limits.
SOLSTIC's virtual identifier or V-Id ™ processes the information on an envelope in real time, with no need for physical markings. The solution is based on the image of the object. How it works: all of the characteristics of an envelope (format, colour, logo, text, number of lines and address content, etc.) are specific to each object, representing its DNA. The image acquired and recognition information are associated with the V-Id™, which can then be used to identify the envelope and recover information when the envelope passes through a machine.
V-Id™ technology can be used with both parcels and post, regardless of whether or not the customer uses bar codes.
