All systems have advantages and disadvantages. But by cleverly merging strengths and weaknesses to complement one another, in combination, the system becomes more powerful than its individual parts are.
Our puzzle parts are GNSS, Dead Reckoning, WLAN, 4G and RFID.
In Container Terminals We Can …
An Intermodal Yard is a complex world in which manual operation, remote control and automation meet. Several systems work together and exchange different types of data via non-homogenious and sometimes very specific interfaces.
Besides different layers of machinery, hardware and software that work in different sectors with different tasks and at different speeds, Yardeye allows all components to be synchronized in an effective manner.
The chart below visualizes the interaction between the main control systems:
Personnel and Vehicle Position are measured by GNSS / RFID. Their position is received by the crane and through other tags in the yard (e.g. highmasts, gates, …). The Yardeye Server captures all the data, filters, fuses and cross-validates the different inputs. From there, the data is forwarded to the Terminal Operation System (TOS), Yard Controller (YC) as well as the Crane Controller (CC) / Crane Management System (CMS).
Yardeye Software – Yard Visualisation
Within milliseconds, the Yardeye System chooses and adapts crane paths. The visualisation runs both on dedicated panels (e.g. in the OPS Management Room, in the Remote Operation Room) or optionally in a Webbrowser or via an App.
Yardeye’s solution connects seamlessly into existing Terminal IT Infrastructure. We understand that we are a puzzle part in the data and material flow chain.
Our solution requires minimal or no maintenance. However, components may get damaged, lost or fail.
Yardeye offers a 24/7/365 service line for our installations around the globe. Local partners are fast responders and usually in the terminal within two hours.
