ABSTRACT

Summary. In the present study the transport work on collecting routes in "Bulgarian Posts" EAD has been analysed. Routes have been defined, in which a reduction of the transport costs is possible if pre-collected information about the availability of letters in the mailboxes is available. For this purpose, an automated system was created, which can recognise the availability of letters and send notifications. The method and the recognition criterion are described and the critical value of the colour temperature criterion was experimentally obtained. The system was tested with typical envelopes and the results showed that recognition had a 100% success rate.
