SmartPort Project delivering Automation for Scandlines Ports
Over the next year, Adaptive Recognition will deliver the foundation – intelligent cameras, sensors and middleware – that will enable Scandlines to build a Smart Port that can automate the handling of ferry customers.
Carsten Nørland, CEO Scandlines, said: “This project marks Scandlines’ foray into digitizing ferry ports and turns the Puttgarden-Rødby connection into a real-time, end-to-end ferry operation with technology from Adaptive Recognition, making the two ports some of the smartest in Europe.”
Adaptive Recognition brings specialized experience from many industries creating the foundation to build a Smart Port with automated solutions.
Scandlines will be benefitting from the latest modern technologies from industry leaders. Adaptive Recognition is going to deliver automatic number plate recognition and vehicle identification technology at the entry and exit gates streamlining passenger and freight check-in flows.
Alan Tofte, Chief Marine Engineer and Managing Partner at Adaptive Recognition Nordic A/S, said: “Adaptive Recognition Nordic, based in Copenhagen, Denmark is really proud to be part of this project and uses our expert know-how and best practice experience in SmartPort projects gained through years of working in the maritime sector with individual shipping companies, ports, marine and maritime business service industries.”
Scandlines is a modern and innovative ferry operator with a green vision for the future and a proud culture based on strong German-Danish co-operation and maritime history dating back to 1872. Scandlines operates two ferry routes with high capacity and frequency. Six of our ferries are hybrid ferries, and two are furthermore fitted with an innovative rotor sail – and that contributes to making these ferries greener.
With more than 38,000 departures on seven ferries, Scandlines in 2021 transported over 3.6 million passengers, 950,000 cars and around 720,000 freight units on the routes Puttgarden-Rødby and Rostock-Gedser.
Adaptive Recognition develops, manufactures, and distributes highly reliable intelligent software and imaging devices for system components in the vehicle access, traffic, and transportation management, and ID security sectors.
