The Port Network Authority of the Northern Tyrrhenian Sea (Port of Livorno) is planning an implementation plan around 5G.
amely, 5G provides high flexibility, high bandwidth and low latency, and is considered to be a key enabling technology for the optimisation of freight terminal operations.
By using 5G the Port of Livorno aims to use a control module for managing general cargo performs, achieve real-time control of loading/unloading operations, collect data via yard vehicles and dock sensors, and take operating decisions based on real-time analytical processing.
Moreover, by introducing 5G, will also use augmented reality (AR) and AI-based use cases.
The 5G plan at the Port of Livorno is under the COREALIS project, which proposes a strategic framework, supported by disruptive technologies, including the Internet of Things (IoT), data analytics, next generation traffic management and emerging 5G networks, for cargo ports to handle upcoming and future capacity, traffic, efficiency, and environmental challenges.
This enables ports to minimize their environmental footprint to the city, decrease disturbance to local population through a significant reduction in the congestion around the port, boost economic development and business innovation, and promote local start-ups in disruptive technologies
