Automated Freight Transport Is Transforming Global Logistics

关键自动化技术开始上升全球运输系统,影响货物的每个阶段从原始点流到消费点。

The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the vulnerabilities and fragilities of the global supply chain and, at the same time, accelerated the adoption of自动化物流技术这使得货物运输更加安全,有效,以及无与伦比的交付。

The way in which technological advances, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, autonomous control technologies, user interfaces and smart multimodal communication systems are being integrated and complemented with one another is also revealing vulnerabilities across different industry sectors. As they learn the lessons, logistics companies have started applying better project discipline to ensure that investment in automation can help them to remain competitive.

自动化物流是什么样的?

引用一些最娱乐的ent developments, here’s what the自动物流的未来好像。

在空中货运中,我们通过易于使用的界面进行了易于使用的界面,用于24/7/365的易于使用界面,旨在携带约4.5磅的有效载荷,并在高达12.5英里的距离上送封装。

Large-scale aircraft drones, with a wingspan of 30 feet and a cargo capacity of 700 tons, are also being designed for intercontinental cargo delivery services. Large, remotely operated and heavy-lift freight airplane prototypes, powered with turbo-electric propulsion, are being tested for carrying even larger payloads.

For automated freight to reach its full potential, governments and the public will need to be ready for mainstream use, and r例如,需要解决数据隐私和安全问题。

在海上,自治运输船只配备先进的传感器这使他们能够实时构建周围环境的详细情况,并且远远超出了人类的准确性。传感器融合和人工智能的组合为导航和自动包避免的物体检测和碰撞避免提供了血管。

Autonomous freight trains are the third leg of the stool. They are currently operational and being used to deliver iron ore in Western Australia. The locomotive单位配有一个板载模块,将自动报告发送到其位置,速度和方向到距离酒店有超过1,500公里的控制中心。机车和所有公共交线也配有相机,允许持续监测。

Speaking the Same Language

Automated logistics systems are built to achieve high efficiency, which translates into time savings in terms of performance, which, for companies, translates into profit. With a highly efficient system, logistics companies are capable of meeting peak demands. Automated freight, when adopted, can offer increased efficiency in delivery and the lowering of transportation costs.

自动物流系统具有相似技术能力,待执行的应用类型的一些差异。任何自动化车辆都需要一个复杂的控制系统,使其使其移动并使用复杂系统(例如,AI,机器学习,传感器,连接)来实现自主权。该系统将监控和建立与其他系统的通信以执行任何必需的任务。

如果价值链的其他部分,则业务中的技术可能几乎没有效果,例如合同制造商,第三方物流提供商,仓储公司,经销商和零售商,are unable to form partnerships. Automation can help suppliers and retailers to speak the same business language, with both being able to可视化偏差并早期识别风险,因此供应链可以实时进行微调。

A Bumpy Road Ahead

The field of automated freight is still in development. Bringing autonomous vehicles, especially on the road, remains an enormous challenge for companies. For automated freight to reach its full potential, governments and the public will need to be ready for mainstream use, and r例如,需要解决数据隐私和安全问题。有责任规范自动化技术的未来,政府将不得不创建确保自治车辆安全和功能的政策,建立可以保证数据可以安全和安全地管理数据的协议,并有助于逐步将新系统逐步融入数据现有的。

There is also a need to consider that goods are transported not only within but also across national boundaries, thus cooperation in the development of international policies could help to address a system with a wide perspective. Finally, technology developers need to provide flawless operational and mechanical safety records that can help to prove that the implementation of technology is not only efficient, but is secure anywhere, so that the public can be assured that the adoption of automated technologies offers more benefits than problems.
