Advances in truck and AGV automation for efficient and safe terminal and inter-terminal operation – Presented by Bastiaan Krosse M.Sc., TNO at the Cargo Innovation Conference, which takes place on June 14, 2017, at Maaspoort, Venlo, The Netherlands.
In this presentation some latest developments on both truck and AGV automation are presented that will have a strong impact on future port and terminal operation (on the sites themselves, as well as the inter-link). The developments are presented in the broader scope of vehicle automation in the automotive domain and it will be shown that these developments are applicable for both large and small to medium scale terminals.
