Autonomous solutions, equipped with lidar technology, can lower costs in seaport terminal operations by helping to bring improved equipment and vehicle reliability and predictability.
Port Technology International posted a story on how Velodyne Lidar and Rajant Corporation, an Automated with Velodyne partner, are working to equip DP World’s Jebel Ali Port, the world’s ninth busiest seaport, with a fleet of DGWorld’s Autonomous Internal Terminal Vehicles (AITVs).
The article notes:
“Velodyne Puck sensors will provide rich computer perception data to help determine the safest way to navigate and direct AITVs in the complex, busy DP World, UAE Region seaport.”
American Journal of Transportation also wrote an article on the news which quoted Velodyne’s Erich Smidt as saying:
“Velodyne is honored to be selected to help fully automate terminal vehicle transport at Jebel Ali Port, the premier port in the Middle East. This exciting initiative will enable port terminal vehicles to work fully autonomously without drivers in a hectic, crowded environment.”
Other media outlets that covered the DP World – DGWorld seaport deployment include Automotive World, Container Management and Ship Technology.
