Improving Port Operations through the Application of Robotics and Automation within the Framework of Shipping 4.0

Publikation: KonferencebidragKonferenceabstrakt til konferenceForskningpeer review

The fourth industrial revolution, referred to as
Industry 4.0, is the integration of wide-range of new technologies
aiming at digitizing the ecosystem of industrial supply chain. The
Industry 4.0 paradigm has been expanded to various industrial
sectors, Farming and Shipping to name a few.Within the shipping
industry, ports play a major role in a nation’s economy and
growth. Around 75% of the trade between the European Union
and the rest of the world is managed at ports. This implies that
efficiency must be improved by automating port operations to
increase the potential for economic growth. This paper discusses
a day-to-day port operation of delivering on-demand supplies
from port to vessels and proposes to automate the end-to-end
delivery process. The proposed solution relies on the coordinated
actions of an automated boat, Remotely Piloted Aircraft System
(RPAS) and ground station to deliver the supplies from port
to vessels to make the delivery process time and cost efficient.
The paper presents a detailed framework in the form of system
architecture and subsystem design to realize the solution while
ensuring safety and reliability in transportation.
