Mediterranean Information Traffic Application

CHIPS TRACK THE TRUCKS

CHIPS TRACK TRUCKS

The MED.I.T.A. project aims at setting up a data network between Mediterranean ports and dry ports, so as to support easier and faster exchanges of goods. A pilot action: tracking trailers in the port area.

Passive UHF RFID: cheap chips; efficient technology

AN INNOVATIVE SYSTEM

MED.I.T.A. designs and implements an autonomous system for spotting Ro-Ro trailers within the area of Valencia Port. How to track a trailer? Through UHF RFID chips. Cheap and easy.

The pilot system consists of UHF RFID chips linked to a monitoring and control software for keeping an eye on trucks and trailers exiting the port.

benefits of the pilot action

› Fast access to ports and terminals
› A network surveying the transportation of goods in the Mediterranean
› Ad hoc data mining processes
› A web communication platform for sharing information.

MED.I.T.A. will reduce queues and shrink the overall inspection time. A new assisted inspection system will take care of empty containers at the exit lanes, and an automatic customs release system will process RO-RO units at the dedicated gates.

The pilot under way at Valencia is an important milestone to improve the traceability of trucks, trailers, semi-trailers, semi-trailers with containers, and semi-trailers carrying manufactured cars inside the port area, more specifically within Valencia Terminal Europa (VTE), and from this terminal towards the main automatic gate.

Many Mediterranean ports are expecting the test results before they implement the new tracking structure.
