Intermodal freight transport planning - A receding horizon control approach


"This paper investigates intermodal freight transport planning problems among deep-sea terminals and inland terminals in hinterland haulage for a horizontally fully integrated intermodal freight transport operator at the tactical container flow level. An intermodal freight transport network (IFTN) model is first developed to capture the key characteristics of intermodal freight transport such as t..." [More...]

Survey on ASV technology developments and readiness levels for autonomous shipping


"Recently, Autonomous Surface Vessels (ASVs) have attracted a lot of attention. Developing a fully autonomous vessel is challenging. Existing research provides a track from existing vessels to a remotecontrolled vessel with reduced crews, an unmanned remote-controlled vessel, and at the end, a fully autonomous vessel. The first step is to equip existing vessels to realize autonomous sailing. In thi..." [More...]

Distributed model predictive control -- An overview and roadmap of future research opportunities


"This is a position article on the current state of the art in distributed Model Predictive Control (MPC) and our view on its future potential. We present results from a recent survey of 35 distributed MPC approaches. For this, we propose a way in which distributed MPC approaches can be categorized for comparison. We also link the potential that these approaches have to the domain of other fields s..." [More...]

Predictive path following with arrival time awareness for waterborne AGVs


"Large ports are seeking innovative logistical ways to improve their competitiveness worldwide. This article proposes waterborne AGVs, inspired by conventional AGVs and Autonomous Surface Vessels, for transport over water. A predictive path following with arrival time awareness controller is proposed for such waterborne AGVs. The controller is able to achieve smooth tracking and energy efficiency w..." [More...]

Synchromodal container transportation: an overview of current topics and research opportunities


"Renewed attention has emerged for the topic of intermodal transportation. Since a couple of years, research has focused on the concept of synchromodality. Synchromodality refers to creating the most efficient and sustainable transportation plan for all orders in an entire network of different modes and routes, by using the available flexibility. In this paper we provide an overview of relevant res..." [More...]
