Scarcity of maritime container terminal (MCT) capacity can become a problem for global supply chains. Bottlenecks limit the capacity of these terminals and should therefore be detected and alleviated. However, there is no structured approach available in literature to mitigate the effects of bottlenecks at MCTs. Therefore, this research...

Dependently typed programming languages and proof assistants such as Agda and Coq rely on computation to automatically simplify expressions during type checking. To overcome the lack of certain programming primitives or logical principles in those systems, it is common to appeal to axioms to postulate their existence. However, one can only...

The aim of this study is to develop an inland terminal location selection methodology. This methodology is viewed from the perspective of the shipping line designing the inland transport chain while also taking the objectives of multiple other stakeholders into account. To that end, we develop a consensus model for a group Best-Worst Method ...

The brownfield container terminal at the Maasvlakte aims at realizing a zero-emission vehicle fleet to strive for its aim to be zero-emission by 2040. Therefore, the research question is as follows: “What are the consequences for costs and operational performance of implementing mature renewable energy carriers for AGVs at the container...

Though NanoSats are becoming increasingly capable of featuring active payloads, and acquiring inertial data at arcsec level precision; the payload operational duty-cycle largely remains limited by its data downlink capabilities. NanoSat laser communication terminal (LCT) promises 1 Gbps data downlink capabilities. However, LEO to ground free...

Due to the increase of global containerized trade and container vessel sizes, the necessity of container terminal development is unavoidable. On the other hand, designing a container terminal is a very complex process, and on a concept design phase, a quick assessment for the design alternatives should be done in a limited time, cost, and effort...

In order to increase safety and efficiency at sea the International Maritime Organization decided in 2000 that all sea going vessels were to implement Automatic Identification Systems (AIS). AIS is an automatic tracking system which broadcasts static and dynamic information about the vessel. Even though AIS was not initially designed for...

Over the last decades, containerisation became the major way to transport discrete goods replacing a part of general cargo trade and facing the increasing consumer demand of developed and developing world. As a result, container terminals became an important part of a lot of ports worldwide while new technology was developed to encounter the...

New York City is the most cosmopolitan city with great influence in the world, but the transportation problem has always been its urgent task. The Port Authority Bus Terminal, located at the entrance of the most congested tunnel in NYC, Lincoln tunnel, is the largest bus station in the nation and the busiest in the world. However, it shows the...

Over recent decades, the quality of death and dying has received much attention in society. Many patients with terminal cancers or admitted to intensive care/acute units are in need of care for the end of their life (Susan, 2015). With this need rising up, palliative care service is gradually developed mainly as the setting of hospice or home...

The continuing growth in air travel passengers, in combination with enhanced security regulations, has led to unsustainable situations at airports. In order to handle the future amount of air travel passengers while complying to security regulations and enhancing the passenger experience, the terminal system must be innovated. Seamless flow is a...

Multiterminal dc (MTDC) network is preferred due to its reliability, security of supply and flexibility. However, MTDC network also comes with the protection challenges resulting from dc faults. Hence, the dc circuit breaker (DC CB) is imperative in such a network. In these recent years, several DC CB technologies have been proposed and...

In the recent years the satellite industry has progressed on the subject of optical communication for use in space. With recorded speeds over 5 Gb/s it has shown to be an alternative for radio communication. In the CubeSat market this technology is new, underdeveloped, and could lead to new missions that were not possible before. As such, TNO...

The design of the new cruise terminal for Manhattan aims to revalue the relationships between Manhattan and its river, the very reason for the success story of the city. This re-evaluation is a public process of re-appropriation, in which the public value of the cruise terminal is given back its major role as gate to / from the city. Display,...

The control of a dedicated ITT system operating human driven MTSs and AGVs can be centralized, decentralized or distributed. The objective of this research is to find which controller structure is best suited for controlling a mixed traffic ITT system. In doing so, performance differences will be reviewed to gain insight into the effect of...

The size of container ships is constantly growing over recent decades due to a continuous search for economies of scale by shipping lines. The growth of the container ships has necessitated ports to adapt, e.g. by increasing the water depth requirements. Many of the conventional onshore ports cannot receive larger ships without dredging...

Long Range Wide Area Network (LoRaWAN) covers the needs of energy-constrained IoT-devices for operational longevity and extended communication range in a best-effort fashion. However, Lo- RaWAN’s minimalist design cannot handle the traffic from dense deployments with more than a few hundred devices connected to a single gateway, since each LoRa...

The amino-terminal copper and nickel/N-terminal site (ATCUN/NTS) present in proteins and bioactive peptides exhibits high affinity towards Cu<sup>II</sup> ions and have been implicated in human copper physiology. Little is known, however, about the rate and exact mechanism of formation of such complexes. We used the stopped-flow and...

Energy efficiency remains one of the main factors for improving the key performance markers of RRAMs to support IoT edge devices. This paper proposes a simple and feasible low power design scheme which can be used as a powerful tool for energy reduction in RRAM circuits. The design scheme is exclusively based on current control during write...
