Monitoring Berth Usage

Samenvatting

The Port of Amsterdam experiences a tremendous amount of ship movements and other activities in its harbour area every day. To regulate these activities, port authorities face the task of acquiring a clear overview of the entire harbour on a daily basis. Up until now, port authorities have relied on visual inspections of the harbour by patrol vessels. Research has attempted to show that sensor systems can be capable of monitoring this correct usage of berths autonomously. The conceptual model is centered around sensor modules installed along the berths, detecting ships with a distance sensor, and measuring sound to check for sound pollution and the use of generators in the vicinity of the sensor nodes. The sensor nodes, wirelessly transmit their results to a central server, which combines the data with information from other sources on for example the AIS signals send out by ships for localization and identification. The information is processed and displayed in a JAVA graphical user interface presenting the outcome of the data acquisition to the observer. This interface allows the observer to monitor activities in the harbor, with automated events being generated in case of violations of port regulations. A proof of concept was developed to verify the functionalities and components of the conceptual design, which showed the technical feasibility of this project. With the results gathered, it has been shown that it is indeed possible to use sensor systems to monitor the correct usage of berths, even with sound pollution.
