On Tuesday, June 5, 2018, all the lights turned to the Supply Chain Awards 2018, at a glorious Award Ceremony held at the Ariadni Estate in Varibobi. The awards are organized by the Supply Chain Institute and Boussias Communications, aiming at highlighting excellence and innovation in Supply Chain and Logistics.
At the award ceremony, the best projects and initiatives from companies and organizations for their excellence in this important sector for the National Economy were awarded. More than 300 senior executives from the largest companies and organizations in the country, representatives of Ministries, Associations and journalists attended the meeting.
TREDIT together with CERTH/HIT received the Gold Award for the Research project LOGIMATIC (Tight integration of EGNSS and on-board sensors for port vehicle automation) funded by European GNSS Agency under H2020-Galileo-2015-1.
The project will develop and demonstrate an innovative location and navigation solution for the automation of the operations of straddle carriers in container terminals.
The LOGIMATIC project aims at allowing small-to-medium ports to enjoy the benefits of autonomous vehicles without needing to invest large amount of money in renewing their fleet of vehicles by transforming existing manually driven straddle carriers into full autonomous vehicles.
The project will deliver the following:
– Automations including GNSS and on-board sensors for transforming manually-driven straddle carriers into autonomous ones, including vehicle sensors
– A GIS-based backend solution including fleet management algorithms for efficient management of autonomous vehicles in port areas
– Anti-spoof algorithms for increasing the security of GNSS signals in the port area
– Interfaces for integrating all the above with existing Terminal Operating Systems
TREDIT has significant contributions in all phases of the project while it is responsible for designing, developing and demonstrating – in collaboration with CERTH/HIT – of the backend solution for efficient management of the autonomous Straddle Carrier.
