Jun 14, 2019 | By ALBIE JARVIS

DGWorld’s technology taps Velodyne’s rich computer perception data to help determine the safest way to navigate and direct autonomous vehicles.

Velodyne Lidar, Inc. (Stand A50) will demonstrate how its smart, powerful lidar solutions can advance port terminal automation at TOC Europe in Rotterdam, 18-20 June. Velodyne will highlight customer applications that show how its lidar sensors can be used in crane steering, container handling, internal terminal vehicles (ITV), automated guided vehicles (AGV), forklifts, and terminal security/yard monitoring systems.

DGWorld (Stand B21A), a Dubai-based Velodyne integrator, will showcase autonomous taxis, ITVs, AGVs, and terminal operation vehicles that use Velodyne lidar sensors to run autonomously. These vehicles use advanced artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and self-driving systems to bring greater precision and efficiency to port and terminal operations.

DGWorld’s technology taps Velodyne’s rich computer perception data to help determine the safest way to navigate and direct autonomous vehicles.

“Autonomous vehicles (AV) can reduce costs in port and terminal operations, and bring improved reliability and predictability,” said Gautam Ahuja, Business Development and Sales Director, DGWorld. “Velodyne’s state-of-the-art sensors provide the range, 360-degree field of view, and resolution that our AVs need to synchronize and optimize logistics movements within a port.”

Velodyne’s lidar sensors provide the range, 360-degree field of view, and resolution that DGWorld solutions need to operate autonomously.

DGWorld is a leading provider of advanced autonomous solutions for seaports, airports, and urban cities. DGWorld is working with international port terminal operators in automating their ITVs, with projects that are being implemented at ports.

“DGWorld solutions demonstrate how Velodyne intelligent lidar sensors are helping port and terminal operators deliver consistent service quality and achieve increased safety,” said Erich Smidt, Executive Director Europe, Velodyne Lidar. “DGWorld’s technology taps the full power of Velodyne’s rich computer perception data to help determine the safest way to navigate and direct A
