Artificial Intelligence for smart ports


A new Artificial Intelligence (AI) platform provides real-time awareness of utilisation rates and cargo flows.

With productivity, environmental and economic pressures mounting, ports worldwide are turning to the Internet of Things (IoT), advanced analytics and machine learning to boost operational efficiencies. “The collaboration between Awake.AI and Intel has resulted in an AI-driven solution with great potential for the next step in digitalisation of global transportation. With Smart Port as a Service, ports have a well-defined path toward the future,” said Karno Tenovuo, CEO of Awake.AI.

Converging technology

Working together to mesh edge, AI and 5G technologies, Awake.AI and Intel are looking to catapult port operations into the computer vision era. The new platform based on Intel technology uses machine-learning models to detect objects in the port yard using sensors installed in the port area and automatically provides real-time awareness of utilisation rates and cargo flows.  Organizing the flow of cargo and global supply chains continue to be a great challenge.

Mr Tenovuo said that potential benefits from using the platform include better use of existing capacity, reduced port area emissions, accurate real-time prediction of arrivals and departures and optimised port calls, subsequently leading to time and cost savings. “For example, Lidar sensor data, often combined with other data sources, can be used to optimise the arrival and departure of landside traffic. Sensors can detect congestion, enabling re-routing port gate and inner area traffic,” said Mr Tenovuo.

All-in-one application to power your port calls

Awake Smart Port is a modern all-in-one cloud based application for real-time situational awareness, planning, shared communication and smarter decision making for all port operations. Powered by Awake.AI’s intelligent data platform, Smart Port brings AI-enhanced accurate ETA and ETD predictions, next-generation berthing, and tools to plan your port operation tasks and use of resources in a smarter way.

All aboard messaging

A comprehensive messaging solution to bring all port actors aboard for real-time collaboration and operational decision making between all port operations.

  • Online & mobile chat for stakeholders to share messages in real-time
  • Automatic port call-specific chat rooms which are always up-to-date, reliable and traceable
  • Automatically and manually triggered port call events to support comprehensive messaging
