Digital Documentation of Vehicles & Persons at Port Entry / Exit Gates

Project timeline: 9/21/2022 - 8/15/2023

Mr. Harsha Weerasuriya sought to enhance the security measures within Sri Lanka’s maritime ports by streamlining access control procedures and modernizing documentation efforts. Faced with a high volume of consistent activity, Sri Lanka’s ports were faced with the challenge of manually documenting each individual and vehicle accessing these High Security Zones. Mr. Weerasuriya successfully implemented a system that digitizes this process using mobile Barcode/QR Code Scanners, alleviating the time-consuming nature of manual registration.
