• - and Hobbit imaging solutions Signed a Cooperation Agreement and Hobbit Imaging Solutions signed a cooperation agreement with respect to the exclusive integration of Hobbit’s Vessel Clearance Guide software into’s database platform.

With the partnership of and a combined platform is realized where customers can find all relevant terminal information. Besides general terminal information and storage availability from now on terminal customers can automatically complete a vessel clearance request. This partnership will help tank terminals to become the number one platform for terminal information and help terminals and its customers to work more efficiently.

A customer’s decision to discharge a vessel at a Terminal, depends on whether the vessel is able to perform the requested manipulation (i.e. load/discharge) at a terminal. Therefore vessels go through a vetting process each time they could be nominated, this is called a “Vessel Clearance Request”. For traders, the swiftness in receiving vetting feedback impacts the decision to make or leave a deal. By automating the vessel clearance process the clearance results are direct available, efficiency is increased, and mistakes are excluded.

Automated shoeprint matcher PRIDE


HOBBIT has developed a new application that automatically compares shoe tracks without pre-processing. In addition, this solution makes it possible to create a national reference database. A common reference file is valuable because not everyone then needs to create and maintain their own file. A common file is also logically much more complete. The application is supplied with a large database of shoe tracks that have been found in the past in crime sites from all over the Netherlands.

Automated shoeprint matcher

This file can then be searched automatically. There is no need for manual operations to compare shoe tracks with reference prints or other shoeprints. A digital picture of the shoeprint found at a crime scene only needs to be added to the shoe track comparator to search the database. The most resembling references appear at the top of the list of results. Because the search process is automated, it saves the shoe expert a lot of time that was previously spent searching. This new version is currently tested in the Netherlands, Switzerland and Sweden.

Update face recognition


A new version of face recognition software has been developed. An improved algorithm is used for this new version. This algorithm is much faster than the previous algorithm and makes it possible to search through larger databases. The high speed also makes it possible to process a large amount of images or video material in a short period of time.

This solution can be used for large events, stadiums, airports and other public places. In the first instance, it is important to detect faces in a large crowd. Every face detected can then be compared to faces recorded in a database of wanted people.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about face recognition software.

TRIS 4 nationwide in use

All 25 regional units including the National force of the Dutch police started using the new version of TRIS. This month the last unit is converted to TRIS 4.

TRIS 4 landelijk in gebruik genomen

Before the conversion every unit used to have its own database. With the introduction of the National Police the police decided to make TRIS a nationwide application with just one single national database. A major advantage of this approach is that the exchange of data on offenses between police units is no longer a problem. All forensic experts from different units have access to the same information and database.
