Awake.AI launches Smart Port as a Service platform

Awake.AI has launched a brand-new platform based on Intel technology – Smart Port as a Service. The new Smart Port as a Service platform aims to boost operational efficiencies in ports through the use of edge, AI, and 5G technologies.

The solution then goes on to use machine-learning models to detect objects in the port yard using sensors installed in the port are and automatically provide real-time awareness of utilisation rates and cargo flows.


By using the platform, customers can benefit from better use of existing capacity, reduced port area emissions, accurate real-time prediction of arrivals and departures, optimised port calls driven by AI and computer-vision insights, real-time information sharing, and time and cost savings.


“For example, Lidar sensor data, often combined with other sources of data, can be used to optimize the arrival and departure of landside traffic. Sensors can detect congestion, enabling re-routing port gate and inner area traffic,” says Karno Tenovuo, CEO of Awake.AI.


Using powerful computer vision technologies from Intel, including intelligent edge and cloud instances powered by Intel® Xeon® processors and optional vision accelerators that can benefit from the use of the Intel® Distribution of OpenVINO™ Toolkit, port operators can receive warnings of disruptions from expected normal operations along the cargo flow.

Maurits Tichelman, Intel Vice President of Sales and Marketing, added: “Smart Port as a Service and our cooperation with Awake.AI have great potential to revolutionize trade and to make it more sustainable.


“We can help transportation providers turn data into insights to achieve fast, efficient and informed use of transportation resources.”


“The collaboration between Awake.AI and Intel has resulted in an AI-driven solution with great potential for the next step in digitalization of global transportation. With Smart Port as a Service™, ports have a well-defined path toward the future,” continued Tenovuo.


Awake.AI also recently won the tender to provide vessel schedule estimates for Finnish ports through Fintraffic Vessel Traffic Services.


Fintraffic´s Vessel Traffic Services signed a service agreement with Awake.AI for the new Port Call Time Stamp and Estimation Service, that is a time data service for port operators and authorities.
