Congratulations Huarong!

Short summary
Inside container terminals, conventional automated guided vehicles have been used extensively for decades to improve terminal operational efficiency and sustainability. For the transport between terminals, i.e., Inter Terminal Transport (ITT), this PhD thesis proposes a new type of container transporter, waterborne Autonomous Guided Vessels (waterborne AGVs). Advanced control and scheduling strategies have been developed for coordinating waterborne AGVs in four typical ITT scenarios to improve port logistics.
