Cargo handling by Automated Next generation Transportation Systems for ports and terminals aims to to create smart Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) and Highly Automated Trucks (HATs) that can co-operate in shared workspaces for efficient and safe freight transportation in main ports and freight terminals. The project builds on an active dialog with customers, workforce and authorities to maximize acceptance and exploitation of the project results.
The specific objectives are: -Increase performance and throughput of freight transportation in main ports and freight terminals and maintain a high level of safety -Develop an automated shared work yard for intelligent AGVs and highly automated trucks -Develop and demonstrate planning, decision, control and safety strategies for automated vehicles -Develop and demonstrate an environmental perception system and a grid-independent positioning system
Research questions -Which combination of positioning techniques and sensors allow for reliable and accurate positioning in view of the proposed applications? -How can reliable environmental perception be achieved, i.e. moving and stationary object detection, drivable path detection, docking point detection, absolute and relative object positioning ? -How to set-up and integrate a vehicle control system, including high-level site planning, path planning, interaction planning and feedback control? -How can functional safety of automated vehicles be achieved?"
