Tomas Eglynas has defended his doctoral dissertation  "DEVELOPMENT AND INVESTIGATION OF SMART CARGO TECHNOLOGIES FOR MARITIME INTERMODAL TERMINAL" on 10th of February. Doctoral dissertation was prepared at Vilnius Gediminas Technical University in 2012–2017. Supervisor Prof. Dr Habil. Marijonas BOGDEVICIUS (Vilnius Gediminas Technical University, Transport Engineering – 03T).
Shortcut from dissertation: The new smart quay crane new concept is directly related to the intelligent container and autonomous container carrier concepts. In a vision of autonomous port, while the quay crane spreader approaches to the container at the ship, information about container and cargo resistance must be passed directly to the supercomputers of carrier using radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. Obtained data processing will allow to generate customized fastest and safest specific handling mode for each container, depending on causes of wind, swinging caused by ship movement and etc. The main objectives of the thesis becomes dependency to reduce container sway at quay cranes, by developing the intelligent control system. The intelligent transport problem is solved by developing a quay crane laboratory scaled prototype and adapted mathematical and control system models, using the motion profile based control algorithm implemented with proportional (P), integrative (I) and differentiating (D) controller (PID controller). It should be noted that the PID controller systems were container is the main handling object, which hang on spreader suspended with long ropes, generates significant errors. Dissertation includes developing of a numerical modelling environment for the new system, which results are verified by an experiment, using designed and constructed real-quay crane laboratory prototype.
