Konecranes to help bring new tech to ports
Konecranes’ startup programme has scouted over 2000 startups to find new technologies that could benefit its customers in ports and terminals.
Of the finalists in Konecranes’ REACH Programme, CargoMate Technologies and Nyris were selected as the top two solutions that will proceed to pilots in early 2019, offering the potential for ports to benefit from a port call optimisation pilot programme and image recognition technology.
“We are absolutely delighted to be partnering with Konecranes on a port call optimisation pilot programme. It is incredibly exciting for us as a startup to find a partner who shares our vision for digitally enabled ships and ports and our passion for creating a safer, more efficient, and environmentally sustainable maritime sector,” said Nick Chubb, head of growth at CargoMate Technologies.
CargoMate Technologies provides shipping companies and vessel operators full visibility of cargo operations and predicts the earliest time a ship can leave port.
Nyris is specialized in processing visual data. The provided technology uses an image recognition engine that is based on the latest AI solutions, deep learning frameworks as well as classical computer vision. The technology can be used for instance to recognize different types of products or spare parts in less than 1 second.
Other competition finalists were DeepEyes, Visualix and Xetal.
