Pervasive Technologies has attended the special edition of the SmartCatalonia Challenge focused on the “Port de Tarragona“.
During the event, several companies have offered their ideas to solve the four challenges that were announced a few weeks before.
These solutions offered by the companies are focused on solving different processes of port operations through innovative technologies such as image and video recognition.
What is SmartCatalonia Challenge?
The initiative SmartCatalonia Challenge is a competition promoted by the Secretary of Digital Policies of the Generalitat de Catalunya.
Promoting innovation in search of solutions to territorial problems, it involves startups, small and medium enterprises to meet the challenges posed by the Catalan entities.
SmartCatalonia tries to connect through competition these territorial problems with the proposals offered by companies willing to solve the challenges posed to improve the life quality of many citizens.
Solutions in “Port de Tarragona
Pervasive Technologies attended the event as one of the leading companies in the application of Artificial Intelligence to image and video recognition to give a sample of the solutions that could be applied when solving the proposed issues.
The event held in the “Tarragona Port Authority Assembly Hall” sought to respond to the four challenges posed by SmartCatalonia Challenge for different problems of the “Port of Tarragona”, these are:
- Challenge 1: Fast and safe access to the port
This challenge aims to solve the problem of how to accredit and identify drivers quickly and prior to their arrival at the port.
- Challenge 2: Vehicle Monitoring and Tracking
To provide a solution to the question of how to track vehicles circulating in the Port in a non-invasive way.
- Challenge 3: Automatic Identification of Authorized Personnel
A constant problem that needs to be corrected is how to detect if there are non-accredited people inside the vehicles that enter the port.
- Challenge 4: Automatic Identification of Products
This challenge seeks to answer the question of how to know if the trucks leaving the Port are full or empty.
