Distributed model predictive control -- An overview and roadmap of future research opportunities


"This is a position article on the current state of the art in distributed Model Predictive Control (MPC) and our view on its future potential. We present results from a recent survey of 35 distributed MPC approaches. For this, we propose a way in which distributed MPC approaches can be categorized for comparison. We also link the potential that these approaches have to the domain of other fields s..." [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...]

Survey on short-term 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...]

Closed-loop coordination of inland vessels operations in large seaports using hybrid logic-based Benders decomposition


"This paper addresses two coordination problems that exist in the waterborne transport in large seaports, the long time of stay of inland vessels and insufficient terminal and quay crane planning with respect to their sailing schedules. A novel coordination model is proposed and tackled using logic-based Benders decomposition and Large Neighborhood Search. In addition, a closed-loop perspective is ..." [More...]

Closed-loop scheduling and control of waterborne AGVs for energy-efficient Inter Terminal Transport


"We propose closed-loop energy-efficient scheduling and control of an autonomous Inter Terminal Transport (ITT) system using waterborne Autonomous Guided Vessels (waterborne AGVs). A novel pick-up and delivery problem considering safe intervals between berthing time slots of different waterborne AGVs is proposed. Waterborne AGVs are controlled in a cooperative distributed way to carry out assigned ..." [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...]
