Outsight's Truck Volume sensor Measurement Solution

Optimizing truck volumes measurement with LiDAR technology

Discover Dunakontroll's General Manager Gabor Dévai's testimonial about Outsight's latest industrial application in the paper industry.

Discover Gábor Dévai's testimony on Outsights input for moisture measurement.

Founded in 1994, Dunakontroll KFT is an Hungarian research company that develops microwave-based moisture measurement systems for the Paper Industry. One of the key issues in this industry is measuring the moisture content of materials.

As the quantity of water has a direct impact on the weight of the goods, it has a direct impact on the operational costs associated with handling these goods (storage, transportation, sale...). It is therefore imperative to be able to measure both the volume of materials and their water content, in order to optimize these costs for all players in the chain.


Traditional methods, often manual, are on one hand extremely time-consuming, and on the other hand unable to generate accurate data when dealing with large volumes of materials.

To address this challenge, Dunakontroll developed the HPNA Moisture-Measurement System that combines Microwave technology with LiDAR technology.
