Survey on ASV technology developments and readiness levels for autonomous shipping


"Recently, Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs) have attracted a lot of attention. Developing a fully autonomous vessel is challenging. Existing research provides a track from existing vessels to a remotecontrolled vessel with reduced crews, an unmanned remote-controlled vessel, and at the end, a fully autonomous vessel. The first step is to equip existing vessels to realize autonomous sailing. In thi..." [More...]

Service network design for an intermodal container network with flexible transit times and the possibility of using subcontracted transport


"An intermodal container transportation network is being developed between Rotterdam and several inland terminals in North West Europe: the EUROPEAN GATEWAY SERVICES (EGS) network. This network is developed and operated by the seaports of EUROPE CONTAINER TERMINALS (ECT). To use this network cost-efficiently, a centralized planning of the container transportation is required, to be operated by the ..." [More...]

Planning inland vessel operations in large seaports using a two-phase approach


"Inland vessels are often used to transport containers between large sea ports and the hinterland. Each time a vessel arrives in such a port, it typically visits several terminals to load and unload containers. In the Port of Rotterdam, the largest port in Europe, there are 77,000 inland vessels that have moored in the port in 2014 for transporting cargo. With the significant growth of containerize..." [More...]

Synchromodal container transportation: an overview of current topics and research opportunities


"Renewed attention has emerged for the topic of intermodal transportation. Since a couple of years, research has focused on the concept of synchromodality. Synchromodality refers to creating the most efficient and sustainable transportation plan for all orders in an entire network of different modes and routes, by using the available flexibility. In this paper we provide an overview of relevant res..." [More...]

Life lessons from and for distributed MPC - Part 1: Dynamics of cooperation


"This paper and a second accompanying paper (Olaru et al., 2018) explore the potential of Distributed Predictive Control (DMPC) literature to provide valuable insights into social behaviour. In particular this first paper focuses on the mechanisms of group regulation in social systems. It will be noted that there are major differences between the way in which DMPC algorithms and Social Human Parti..." [More...]

Robust distributed predictive control of waterborne AGVs - a cooperative and cost-effective approach


"Waterborne Autonomous Guided Vessels (waterborne AGVs) moving over open waters experience environmental uncertainties. This paper proposes a novel cost-effective robust distributed control approach for waterborne AGVs. The overall system is uncertain and has independent subsystem dynamics but coupling objectives and state constraints. Waterborne AGVs determine their actions in a parallel way, whil..." [More...]
