We collaborate with Ports 4.0 for logistics-port innovation driving efficiency and competitiveness
SMART UNLASHING SYSTEM (SUS)
ABOUT OUR PROYECT
We are designing a robotic device to efficiently and safely carry out the decontainment operation of containers on ships.
It consists of a modular frame that is hooked onto the main spreader of the Ship To Shore crane. As it moves along the row of containers, it can detect and identify different types of twistlocks using artificial vision cameras and instruct a specially designed articulated robotic arm to grip and open the twistlocks without human intervention, freeing the containers and ready for unstowing.
The largest open space for
Ports 4.0 is the open corporate innovation model adopted by Puertos del Estado and Spanish Port Authorities to attract, support and facilitate the application of talent and entrepreneurship in the Spanish public and private logistics-port sector in the context of the 4th industrial revolution
