In late 1967, the Association of American Railroads adopted optical scanning and a multi-digit, machine readable label as the primary elements of a standard for Automatic Car Identification (ACI) throughout North America. The impact of this technology now extends to the supermarket checkout counter. This session will examine developments in scanning with emphasis upon the coding, code reading and control outputs peculiar to its employment in contemporary rail, marine, trucking and heavy industrial material handling applications. Case histories from each area will be included.
