In the absence of sophisticated ICT tools, the potential role and contribution of ITS and in particular wireless vehicular networks play in logistics is investigated in a multimodal case of a port terminal handling bulk material transported by sea, which is unloaded into haulage vehicles. Event flow mapping and network modelling analysis are used to determine the feasibility of ITS to support real-time data traffic related to the exchange of messages, which are representative of the flow of events taking place in multimodal logistics and which can be associated to high-impact capabilities with economic repercussions such as track and trace. Investigates the feasibility of ITS in sea port multimodal logistics. Use of process mapping to analyse introduction to wireless systems pdf logistics processes.
Identification of information requirements for bulk tipping operations. Data traffic volumes stabilized within the first five minutes of simulation-run. DSRC can provide detailed monitoring capabilities to sea port manual-intensive logistics operations. The selection process has been managed by Dr Robert J. The convergence and precision of synchronization algorithms based on the theory of pulse-coupled oscillators is evaluated on programmable radios. Measurements in different wireless topologies show that such algorithms reach precisions in the low microsecond range.
Based on the observation that phase rate deviation among radios is a limiting factor for the achievable precision, we propose a distributed algorithm for automatic phase rate equalization and show by experiments that an improved precision below one microsecond is possible in the given setups. It is also experimentally demonstrated that the stochastic nature of coupling is a key ingredient for convergence to synchrony. The proposed scheme can be applied in wireless systems for distributed synchronization of transmission slots, or sleep cycles. University of Klagenfurt, Klagenfurt, Austria, in 2007 and 2008.
