Abstract – Liam Scott The emergency services currently have no safe way of identifying the contents of containers that have been abandoned or washed up. They currently need to carefully approach the container in order to gain the UN identification number which can then be related to a specific substance. I proposed to create a program that would allow for the UN identification number to be identified from just an image of the container which would allow for the emergency services to stay at a safe distance from the container. After testing the program had an accuracy of 68.75% on basic images but fell down and was unable to detect image that were taken from angles due to the way in which the codes are detected.
