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...]

Supervisory nonlinear MPC for emergency voltage control using pattern search


"The design of a higher-layer controller using model predictive control (MPC) is considered. The higher-layer controller uses MPC to determine set-points for controllers in a lower control layer. In this paper the use of an object-oriented model of the system for making predictions is proposed. When employing such an object-oriented prediction model the MPC problem is a nonlinear, non-smooth optimi..." [More...]

Fast ADMM for distributed model predictive control of cooperative Waterborne AGVs


"This article proposes a distributed predictive path following controller with arrival time awareness for multiple waterborne AGVs applied to Inter Terminal Transport (ITT). The goal is to design an efficient cooperative distributed algorithm that solves local problems in parallel and minimizes an overall objective. We model the ITT problem using waterborne AGVs with independent dynamics and object..." [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...]

Distributed model predictive control for cooperative synchromodal freight transport


"This paper investigates cooperative synchromodal freight transport planning among multiple intermodal freight transport operators in different and interconnected service networks. The cooperative planning is formulated as a cooperative model predictive container flow control problem, and solved with three Distributed Model Predictive Flow Control (DMPFC) approaches: the parallel and serial Augment..." [More...]

Survey on autonomous surface vessels: Part II - Categorization of 60 prototypes and future applications


"Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs) have been developed for more than 20 years. Many ASV projects have been successfully realized, and as many are still under development. In literature there is a lack in research about different applications and suitable environments for the deployment of ASV. In our previous paper [44], we introduced the emerging concept of autonomous vessels. A multi-layer multi-..." [More...]
