Predictive path following with arrival time awareness for waterborne AGVs


"Large ports are seeking innovative logistical ways to improve their competitiveness worldwide. This article proposes waterborne AGVs, inspired by conventional AGVs and Autonomous Surface Vessels, for transport over water. A predictive path following with arrival time awareness controller is proposed for such waterborne AGVs. The controller is able to achieve smooth tracking and energy efficiency w..." [More...]

Intermodal freight transport planning - A receding horizon control approach


"This paper investigates intermodal freight transport planning problems among deep-sea terminals and inland terminals in hinterland haulage for a horizontally fully integrated intermodal freight transport operator at the tactical container flow level. An intermodal freight transport network (IFTN) model is first developed to capture the key characteristics of intermodal freight transport such as t..." [More...]

Design and control of hybrid power and propulsion systems for smart ships: A review of developments


"Power and propulsion of ships need to reduce fuel consumption and increase versatility. This paper classifies ship propulsion topologies into mechanical, electrical and hybrid propulsion, and power supply topologies into combustion, electrochemical, stored and hybrid power supply. We review opportunities and challenges of hybrid architectures and advanced control strategies that can reduce fuel c..." [More...]

The cargo fare class mix problem for an intermodal corridor - Revenue management in synchromodal container transportation


"The intermodal hinterland transportation of maritime containers is under pressure from port authorities and shippers to achieve a more integrated, efficient network operation. Current efforts for improving this have yielded limited results, though, as the transportation product structure limits the flexibility of transportation providers to optimise network logistics. Synchromodality aims to overc..." [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...]

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...]
