Port digital twin development use case for autonomous vessels

To realize autonomous shipping, it is worth digitalizing and autonomizing the seaborne trade supply chain as well. The port is the hub component in the future maritime supply chain because its role is to connect sea and land autonomous transportation. Thus, it is valuable to explore how the port could be prepared for the autonomous maritime value chain. This presentation will discuss the essential components of the port digital twin for autonomous vessels. It will also introduce a real port digital twin development use case (Busan Port).
