Velodyne Features Advanced Lidar for Port Terminal Automation at TOC Europe

Velodyne Integrator DGWorld Showcases Advanced Vehicle Automation

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#TOCEuropeVelodyne
Lidar, Inc.
(Stand A50) will demonstrate how its smart, powerful
lidar solutions can advance port terminal automation at TOC
in Rotterdam, 18-20 June. Velodyne will highlight customer
applications that show how its lidar sensors can be used in crane
steering, container handling, internal terminal vehicles (ITV),
automated guided vehicles (AGV), forklifts, and terminal security/yard
monitoring systems.

(Stand B21A), a Dubai-based Velodyne integrator, will showcase
autonomous taxis, ITVs, AGVs, and terminal operation vehicles that use
Velodyne lidar sensors to run autonomously. These vehicles use advanced
artificial intelligence (AI), automation, and self-driving systems to
bring greater precision and efficiency to port and terminal operations.

“Autonomous vehicles (AV) can reduce costs in port and terminal
operations, and bring improved reliability and predictability,” said
Gautam Ahuja, Business Development and Sales Director, DGWorld.
“Velodyne’s state-of-the-art sensors provide the range, 360-degree field
of view, and resolution that our AVs need to synchronize and optimize
logistics movements within a port.”

DGWorld is a leading provider of advanced autonomous solutions for
seaports, airports, and urban cities. DGWorld is working with
international port terminal operators in automating their ITVs, with
projects that are being implemented at ports.

“DGWorld solutions demonstrate how Velodyne intelligent lidar sensors
are helping port and terminal operators deliver consistent service
quality and achieve increased safety,” said Erich Smidt, Executive
Director Europe, Velodyne Lidar. “DGWorld’s technology taps the full
power of Velodyne’s rich computer perception data to help determine the
safest way to navigate and direct AGVs and terminal operation vehicles
in complex, busy work environments.”
