Today, one of the biggest challenges port operators face is ensuring their frontline workers are safe and secure. Featuring sensors and software solution, this connected worker demonstration is designed to provide near real-time location tracking of workers, helping them to understand their environment while offering real time data and predictive analytics, empowering the workforce to optimize operations while increasing efficiencies.

Predictive maintenance enables port terminal operators  to track machine data analytics and evaluate its health, status and performance in real time. By connecting the machinery with cellular connectivity and sensors for data collection, this demo showcases how an asset’s condition and health can be monitored and measured, understanding equipment effectiveness and preventing unexpected downtime.

5G technology means fast, secure and reliable connectivity in your business-critical maritime operations. Ericsson Private 5G provides a pre-configured product with the ability to deliver the same features as public 4G and 5G networks but with additional safety, security and privacy combined with ease of purchase and deployment. This demonstration features Ericsson Private 5G with specifically designed use cases for port operators and the maritime sector as a whole.

Complex and long product lines must be monitored to ensure a range of detection activities.This demonstration uses industrial use sensors to train for applications where completeness is monitored, volumes are determined, objects are sorted and unloaded and robots are navigated, ultimately increasing operators’ efficiencies.
