Abstract:In container terminals with AGV systems, autonomous and non-autonomous traffic is strictly separated. The AGVs operate at the quayside and the external trucks at the landside. Container terminals that want to use AGV systems have to be designed specially. However, due to recent technological development, it is now possible to mix automated and manual traffic. The introduction of the ATT exemplifies this, because they are able to drive in mixed traffic. These ATTs could also be implemented in already built terminals that are not fit for AGV systems. However, before they can be implemented research has to be done on what the impact would be on the performance of container terminals.This research investigates different traffic control mechanisms for mixed traffic container terminals.
