“Concept art for a simulation game where the players choose one cart from 10 unique shopping carts. Players from around the world will have the chance to shop virtually for whatever they want, in a completely whole new experience and in a variety of ways.”
Robot Longshoremen Could Reduce Space Needed for Ports by Half
Future shipping ports won’t need acres and acres of land to transfer and hold containers unloaded from ships. Instead, robotic carts and elevators will efficiently shuttle containers around multistory structures and deliver them to tractor-trailers that pull in below.
That’s the idea behind the Robotic Container Management & Storage System being proposed by Israel Aerospace Industries. The whole thing would be managed by an autonomous control system overseen by human operators.
IAI says the system can load and unload containers 1.5 times faster than currently possible while reducing space needed for operations by half.
