Key players, application cases, solutions and development trends
DUBLIN, June 3, 2021 / PRNewswire / – The “Global report on automated port management, 2021” the report was added to ResearchAndMarkets.com offer.
A combination of factors, including growing demand for goods boosted by global fiscal and monetary stimulus, congested ports, and shortages of ship, dock and truck workers, are triggering rising shipping costs. . Port operators want increased operational efficiency and solutions to the labor shortage.
Globally, foreign countries got involved in straddle carriers and AGVs very early on, after gaining a place in the market. However, it is difficult for them to accelerate the turnover of port containers and reduce operating costs in a short time, due to rising international transport costs, too long time to deploy AGVs and more space required for autonomous straddle carriers. While autonomous container trucks cost less than other solutions, their rapid deployment only requires the introduction of smart road facilities into existing smart terminals. Major container ports around the world are expected to strive to deploy autonomous container trucks from 2021.
Network communication based on 5G (5 port private network + MEC + V2X): “Automated port management” requires low latency, high bandwidth and high reliability communication connections; communication systems for large special operations equipment for automated terminals must allow efficient and reliable transmission of control, multi-channel video and other information. The 5G V2X is a new engine for building “smart ports”.
In September 2020, the autonomous container trucks from Beijing Trunk Technology Co., Ltd. packed 5G V2X technology, a solution to ultra-long truck queues in port logistics centers. The 5G V2X enables autonomous container trucks to perceive more widely for better interconnection with other equipment and production systems in port areas. In addition, based on low latency and high bandwidth 5G networks, cloud computing and remote monitoring services enable real-time system optimization, intelligent scheduling control and remote driving.
Electrified / Hydrogen Fuel: Transport vehicles in autonomous ports have electric drive, faster response, direct power supply to the autonomous driving system, and higher efficiency than vehicles at fuel. Electric vehicles for autonomous ports are holding the trend. Among the autonomous container trucks currently in operation in ports, 8 models, or 61.5% of the total, are electrically powered.
SAIC-Iveco Hongyan Commercial Vehicle Co., Ltd. introduced smart hydrogen fuel cell heavy trucks, giving full support to building green ports and green transportation systems. In april 2020, Shenzhen Power Tech Center. Co., Ltd. has made a strategic investment in Westwell Lab, with the aim of co-developing autonomous hydrogen vehicles in ports and building an AI + hydrogen port energy ecosystem in the era of 5G + AIoT.
High-level design: Through the lens of digitization throughout the industry, the port scenario lags behind others, such as the digital concept and the application of new technologies. Greater effort should be made on the development of new digital technologies and high-level design, and the development plan of data flow + business flow on the basis of other technologies. High-level design disrupts existing port information and smart construction resources.
In January 2021, Beijing Trunk Technology Co., Ltd. and Huawei signed a cooperation agreement in the port of Tianjin. With its 5G technology, Huawei provides intelligent driving solutions for “Car Cloud” – “Roadside” – “Car End” ports. In August 2020, Alibaba Cloud won the tender of Shandong Port Group (from China first smart port owning 4 port companies: Qingdao Port, Rizhao Port, Yantai Port and Bohai Bay Port) for high level design projects.
Platooning / CVIS: In the closed port environment with multiple scenarios, autonomous container trucks have to communicate with other container trucks, other types of vehicles, port equipment and containers. Fleet operations and CVIS are a trend for automated port management.
In november 2020, the platoon of 13 autonomous container trucks independently developed and delivered by Beijing Trunk Technology Co., Ltd. was carried out in the port of Ningbo Zhoushan. This is another mass production project delivered by the company following a commercial order for 25 autonomous container trucks from Tianjin Port.
