Yesterday, I attended the orientation, conducted by the COMELEC in coordination with the DOST, on General Instruction (GI) for BEI and PCOS Operation, held in Almont Hotel at 1:00 PM. 

What is PCOS? It is Precinct Count Operation Scanner. It is a ballot counting machine used with ballot box. It is designed to scan marked paper ballots, interpret the voter marks, tabulate each vote, generate reports, transmit the results and store each ballot image.
