Towards quality-aware control of perishable goods in synchromodal transport networks


"Innovative technological developments are leading to smart ways for producing food more efficiently and of higher quality. Nevertheless, lots of perishable goods are wasted because of inefficiencies during the subsequent transport process. The amount of wastage could be reduced via better planning and control of transport activities. Perishable goods logistics can be better supported by real-time ..." [More...]

Supervisory nonlinear MPC for emergency voltage control using pattern search


"The design of a higher-layer controller using model predictive control (MPC) is considered. The higher-layer controller uses MPC to determine set-points for controllers in a lower control layer. In this paper the use of an object-oriented model of the system for making predictions is proposed. When employing such an object-oriented prediction model the MPC problem is a nonlinear, non-smooth optimi..." [More...]

Distributed model predictive control for cooperative synchromodal freight transport


"This paper investigates cooperative synchromodal freight transport planning among multiple intermodal freight transport operators in different and interconnected service networks. The cooperative planning is formulated as a cooperative model predictive container flow control problem, and solved with three Distributed Model Predictive Flow Control (DMPFC) approaches: the parallel and serial Augment..." [More...]

Centralization or decentralization: A comparative analysis of port regulation modes


"This paper studies the comparison of two kinds of port regulation modes - the centralization mode and the decentralization mode - using principal-agent theory and dynamic game theory. The optimal tariffs, port capacities and port efficiency levels under these two regulation modes are determined. The theoretical results are applied to the container terminals in Port of Shanghai in China. Sensitivit..." [More...]

Survey on short-term 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...]
