  • 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.

  • Behavioural Modelling and Simulation of Bicycle Traffic
  • Cycling is an important part of the urban transport system and short-distance travel in many modern cities around the world. With no emissions and occupying much less road space than cars, bikes are clean and sustainable. Bicycle traffic needs to be tracked and analysed in order to generate reliable predictions and make correct decisions when adapting and building traffic infrastructure, to account for bikes in road traffic systems, and to model and plan interactions between bikes and autonomous vehicles. Offering a systematic analysis of the movements and behaviours of bicycles and their riders, this book discusses data collection and evaluation approaches, and the development of a framework for the theory and modelling of bike traffic followed by model verification techniques and riding characteristics for context. This book contains valuable information for researchers involved with intelligent transportation systems, traffic modelling and simulation, and particularly those with an especial interest in bicycle traffic. The book will also be of interest to advanced students in these and related fields, and transportation policymakers.

  • Overhead Electric Power Lines: Theory and practice
  • In order to fulfill the tremendous worldwide demand for electrification, power line professionals will need to adopt rapid, reliable and sustainable solutions. For example, in a fast-developing country like India, which had the largest population without electricity in 2014 and 1.34 billion inhabitants in 2017, the demand for electrification is immense. In recent years, a new program facilitated 0.73 million new household connections per month and almost 19000 villages per year. Wide-spread experience in geographical, geological, social and economic diversity leaves no doubt that overhead power lines (OHL) are the only way to provide electricity to communities where underground lines are technically unfeasible or too expensive. This book presents the technology and recent research into OHL in a concise and systematic way. After brief introductory sections, chapters cover line support, foundation and mechanical sag, corona discharge, overhead line insulators and conductors, earthing and earth wire, lightning and surge protection, insulation and coordination, route selection, commissioning, operation and maintenance. This book is a must-read for researchers and experts involved with utilities and particularly for anyone associated with the installation, electrification, operation and maintenance of overhead lines in transmission and distribution networks.
