In this case, the labor-intensive task of manually scanning and updating boxes on conveyor belts was performed by individuals. However, Sensfix revolutionized this process by utilizing CCTV cameras to handle these tasks. By leveraging optical character recognition (OCR), Sensfix enabled automated box scanning and simultaneous information updates directly to the system, eradicating human errors and saving valuable time. In addition, the integrated CCTV cameras have the capability to track and count the number of boxes on the conveyor belt in real-time, providing instant updates to the software. These cameras also possess the capability to distinguish between damaged and undamaged boxes as they move down the conveyor belt. When a damaged box is scanned, an immediate alert is triggered to notify the employee, prompting swift removal of the damaged box from the conveyor belt
