Intelligent Transportation for Dynamic Environment
When: Thursday 10 June 2010 at 19h00
Where: Stadscampus, Universiteit Antwerpen, Prinsstraat 13, B-2000 Antwerpen.
Mr. Rochdi Merzouiki, University of Science and Technology of Lille (USTL-Lagis) will discuss the Intelligent Transportation for Dynamic Environment project (InTraDE) that is developing a framework and methodology for the implementation of an Intelligent Automatic Vehicle (IAV) into the ports of North West Europe. The implementation of the IAV will bring about an improvement in productivity and competitiveness through optimisation of loading and discharging of containers using IAV's. The key tasks of this project are the development of a dynamic virtual simulator of the port operational environment and the development of the IAV prototype.
The event is organised by Institute of Marine Engineering, Science, & Technology (IMarEST), contact person John Riordan.
BP Louisiana Oil Spill and environmental disaster in USA. Causes, consequences, solutions.
