PA-GIMS is the special-purpose system that is built for inventory management of grains stored in silos, warehouses, and bunkers. This solution can also be used to manage stockpiles and other special laydown areas.
PA-GIMS is composed of two parts: hardware and software. The hardware part of the solution consists of a level gauge sensor with the ability to move in three dimensions. It allows the scanning of grain rough and usually irregular surface at numerous points. After extracting the relevant points, the interpolation operation is performed by the software to build the surface of the grain. Finally, the volume of grain is estimated with very high accuracy which is then deployed to calculate and report the grain mass in a real-time manner.
