Port of Oulu dig­i­tal twin

The dig­i­tal twin of the Port of Oulu is a mod­ern and agile plat­form of dynam­ic infor­ma­tion that shows how the port oper­ates, serves and evolves. Based on the data col­lect­ed, the vir­tu­al mod­el reports on the oper­a­tions and the area in a diverse way.

Infor­ma­tion is visu­al­ized in many ways, e.g. through images, videos, and sim­u­la­tion. For exam­ple, infor­ma­tion on weath­er con­di­tions, the move­ments of dif­fer­ent vehi­cles in the area, changes in cir­cum­stances or trans­port routes caused by con­struc­tion projects are col­lect­ed as visu­al, up-to-date infor­ma­tion for the use of the cus­tomers, entire port ecosys­tem and com­pa­nies through­out the logis­tics chain.

The dig­i­tal twin also enables the plan­ning and mon­i­tor­ing of sea, rail and road traf­fic, using shape recog­ni­tion of ships, trains and vehi­cles, obser­va­tion of con­di­tions, mod­el­ing of objects, accu­rate posi­tion­ing and fore­cast­ing of move­ments.

If nec­es­sary, the col­lect­ed data can also be trans­ferred out of the ser­vice with the help of data­base search­es or trans­fer mate­ri­als, and in addi­tion, the infor­ma­tion can be uti­lized with ana­lyt­i­cal tools, e.g. for berth and rail capac­i­ty opti­miza­tion, car­go oper­a­tion sim­u­la­tions, spa­tial plan­ning and oth­er real-time needs. In the future, the dig­i­tal twin will cre­ate oppor­tu­ni­ties for the devel­op­ment of autonomous trans­port, drone ser­vices and the use of arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence.
