Overview of Vaxtor VaxOCR Train

  • Reads, stores and transmits up to 100,000 UIC numbers
  • Multiple regions of interest can be set

Designed to accurately read, store and transmit Union of Railways (UIC) numbers, found predominantly on railway coaches and wagons, this VaxOCR application works with Axis IP cameras to offer automated real-time tracking of rolling stock. Using UIC numbers to identify railway wagons and coaches, operators are able to easily track assets or improve health and safety measures with a greater level of monitoring. Available both on-camera or on a PC-based system – running either Windows or Linux OS – this application instantly reads UIC numbers as they pass a designated capture point, requiring no manual input once integrated.

Application & Functionality

Data gathered from this application can be easily transferred to video management software such as Milestone XProtect, Helix Back Office or Axis Camera Station for storage or further analysis. Additional information such as time, date, position of code, direction of travel and images of the detected wagon/coach, can also be recorded when a UIC is read, providing a detailed report of all locomotives that pass the capture zone. Up to 100,000 codes can be cached onboard the connected camera, allowing for comprehensive tracking of large fleets, without the need to constantly offload the camera.

Please note: In low-light conditions, an artificial white light is required to read non-reflective codes.


The application can be easily installed onto any compatible Axis camera (featuring ARTPEC-6 chipset or newer) or onto a PC running up-to-date Windows or Linux operating systems. Multiple regions of interest can be configured to ensure that all relevant wagon and coach numbers are captured. Furthermore, multiple cameras can be integrated via the PC client, with each camera requiring its own licence.

Please Note: Users must purchase a licence for either onboard or PC integration, if you require both, an extra licence is required per camera.

The number of cameras that can be integrated into the PC application is dependent on device specifications and expected traffic.
