Project Details

Description

Digitalisation and increased levels of autonomy in transport are expected to take leaps forward inthe coming years. This development can help in creating safer, more efficient, sustainable, andreliable service chains to meet the requirements for a better quality of life and global prosperity.Harbour operations connect the maritime transport to other modes of transportation and enablemultimodal transportation. Smart harbours are in central role in future transport chains. Well builddigital infrastructure is essential in both optimizing operations as well as planning for future investment and maintenance needs. Progressive data management and data sharing is essentialfor transparent, interoperable, safe, effective and environmentally friendly operations. Smart Terminals (SMARTER) project enlarges the scope of DIMECC Sea4Value program toharbours and ports by develop solutions that benefit ROPAX and RORO harbours in reducing emissions by optimising harbour operations and improving cargo and people flow while improvingthe experience for all stakeholders.
The mission of SMARTER is to create replicable models for digitalisation, service innovation anddata usage & sharing in harbour environment and prepare for the future by taking steps towardssmart and autonomous maritime transportation.
SMARTER is a transformative project that aims for wide societal influence by providing concreteresearch-based recommendations on regulation, business, data usage & sharing and forstandardization. Project focuses on experiments that speedup ship turnaround time, optimise thetruck traffic and improve people flow.
