how it works

The Blicker AI reads meters like an expert

Utility companies deal with a significant amount of human errors because of manual meter reading. Meter administration and data management processes are still checked manually, which leads to costly and time-consuming operations.

Our tool solves this problem by translating the visual information captured in a photo of your meter into data, in real-time, by using artificial intelligence. Blicker automatically extracts meter readings, serial numbers and much more, even when the photo is taken upside down, at an angle, of a dirty meter, or in other challenging conditions meters are found in.

With our intelligent meter readout assistent, the user will get a notification in the case that additional action is required to ensure the data is correct. For instance, if the image is taken of a wrong meter or if a better image is needed in case of bad image quality. Assistance is available at any time, any place, making it incredibly easy to use without specific instructions or training.

1. Blicker’s ‘brain’ uses artificial intelligence to read meters based on visual patterns

2. Blicker learns from these patterns just like a human would. With one advantage; Blicker has seen millions of examples!

3. Based on these examples Blicker knows how to read meters in all kinds, shapes and conditions.

4. On top of that it recognizes the
cases in which it’s unsure about the result

5. In which case it can ask the user to take another picture.

6. Making sure the final result is always right!
