Tight integration of EGNSS and on-board sensors for port vehicle automation

Updated: May 24, 2017

Background: 

LOGIMATIC proposes an ad-hoc advanced location and navigation solution to enable the automation of existing port vehicles with a significantly lower cost which will allow short-medium term investments until the whole port fleet is renewed with totally autonomous vehicles in the long term.

The project will develop and demonstrate an innovative location and navigation solution for the automation of the operations of straddle carriers in container terminals with the following objectives:

  • To develop an advanced automated navigation solution based on the integration of Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and sensors onboard the SC vehicles.
  • To implement a GIS-based control module compatible with existing Terminal Operating Systems (TOS) for optimized global (yard level) route planning and fleet management.
  • To implement security mechanism in order to detect and avoid spoofing and/or jamming attacks To assess the impact of application of such automated approach at large scale through simulation
  • To integrate, validate and demonstrate the proposed solution in a real port yard.

Objectives: 

LOGIMATIC introduces an ad-hoc advanced location and navigation solution to enable the automation of existing port vehicles with a significantly lower cost which will allow short-medium term investments until the whole port fleet is renewed with totally autonomous vehicles in the long term.
