Port operations face a multitude of challenges like harsh environmental conditions and safety risks for personnel and equipment. Ports aim to minimize any risk of machine collision due to the high costs associated with machine downtime. indurad is addressing such challenges with their customers by implementing radar based solutions to partially or fully automate equipment. A modular approach allows a step-by-step process to finance and implement the solution. With iShiploader, indurad delivers a unique and efficient automation solution for shiploaders and unloaders. The solution consists of several subcomponents such as a collision avoidance systems and machine positioning to achieve remote control and full automation. By combining volumetric measurements and berthing assistance, additional information of the entire loading/unloading chain is provided. All of the systems work together to provide necessary information to optimize loading processes and ensure the safety of personnel and multi-million dollar port equipment. To provide the necessary information to personnel and the machines’ PLCs, several radar sensors are installed on the shiploader/unloader in key locations. For machine collision avoidance, 1D and 2D radar sensors are mounted on the sides of the boom, under the boom, around the spout and on the machine’s chassis. These sensors scan the nearby environment for possible collision threats and provide the operator with assistance during loading by removing blind spots. Predictive detection and controlled machine regulation without…
