  • ICT Solutions and Digitalisation in Ports and Shipping
  • Given the volumes of global ship traffic, solutions are needed to reduce waiting times, costs, energy consumption and emissions. This systematic reference on ICT solutions and digitalisation in the ports and shipping sector covers new and existing technologies, different types of digital systems, and offers illustrative examples and case studies. Coverage includes the following topics: the global trade facilitation regulatory framework and the role of ICT; maritime ports and cybersecurity; e-navigation and shore-based monitoring systems; maritime transportation along the Northern Sea Route; smart shipping beyond e-navigation; maritime communications; emerging radiocommunication technologies in the maritime domain; a data-driven methodology for maritime patterns of life discovery; real-time information with ITS technology; digital supply chain and port information modelling (PIM); ICT innovation in port-hinterland transport services; decarbonisation technologies in shipping and the question of transition fuels; and finally the advent of shore-based navigation: from vessel traffic services (VTS) to e-navigation maritime service portfolio (MSP). The aim of this work is to examine the application of ICT solutions and digitalisation to the movement and clearance of freight at seaports globally. It provides conceptual clarity on the applicability of the different technologies and systems used for this purpose, and the relevance of such projects for different types of ports, from a trade facilitation perspective. It is therefore of particular relevance to researchers, academics, consultants, chief technology officers, and advanced students in the field of freight and logistics, especially in a maritime context. The book is also a valuable reference for anyone involved in port logistics in a managerial or operational capacity, and to port authorities.

  • Emerging Evolutionary Algorithms for Antennas and Wireless Communications
  • Several evolutionary algorithms (EAs) have emerged in recent decades that mimic the behaviour and evolution of biological entities. EAs are widely used to solve single and multi-objective optimization engineering problems. EAs have also been applied to a variety of microwave components, antenna design, radar design, and wireless communications problems. These techniques, among others, include genetic algorithms (GAs), evolution strategies (ES), particle swarm optimization (PSO), differential evolution (DE), and ant colony optimization (ACO). In addition, new innovative algorithms that are not only biology-based but also physics-based or music-based are also emerging, as are hybrid combinations of EAs. The use of evolutionary algorithms is having an increasing impact on antenna design and wireless communications problems. EAs combined with numerical methods in electromagnetics have obtained significant and successful results. This book aims to present some of the emerging Eas and their variants. Chapter 1 introduces the optimization methods in general and the evolutionary algorithms. Chapter 2 presents briefly some of the most popular evolutionary algorithms, such as particle swarm optimization (PSO), differential evolution (DE), and ant colony optimization (ACO) as well as some emerging ones. Chapter 3 focuses on antenna array synthesis, which constitutes a wide range of antenna design problems. Chapter 4 gives an overview of patch antenna design using evolutionary algorithms. Chapter 5 presents design cases from different microwave structure cases. Chapter 6 discusses on various representative design problems in wireless communications. Chapter 7 deals with design cases for 5G and beyond.

  • ReRAM-based Machine Learning
  • The transition towards exascale computing has resulted in major transformations in computing paradigms. The need to analyze and respond to such large amounts of data sets has led to the adoption of machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL) methods in a wide range of applications. One of the major challenges is the fetching of data from computing memory and writing it back without experiencing a memory-wall bottleneck. To address such concerns, in-memory computing (IMC) and supporting frameworks have been introduced. In-memory computing methods have ultra-low power and high-density embedded storage. Resistive Random-Access Memory (ReRAM) technology seems the most promising IMC solution due to its minimized leakage power, reduced power consumption and smaller hardware footprint, as well as its compatibility with CMOS technology, which is widely used in industry. In this book, the authors introduce ReRAM techniques for performing distributed computing using IMC accelerators, present ReRAM-based IMC architectures that can perform computations of ML and data-intensive applications, as well as strategies to map ML designs onto hardware accelerators. The book serves as a bridge between researchers in the computing domain (algorithm designers for ML and DL) and computing hardware designers.
