Organized by the Port of Marseille Fos, CCI Marseille Provence and Aix-Marseille University, the Smartport Challenge is made up of 7 challenges proposed by 7 large companies in the Marseille Fos port ecosystem.
Les Terrasses du Port:
How to inform users better about and around the port?
How to optimize terminal’s get out container operations by means of data available?
How to use renewable energy for connecting ships to the electric grid?
How to establish port cybermapping ?
How to calculate the environmental footprint of a freight shipping route under an offset system?
How to interface a carrier’s run management system with the RFID tag displayed on the trailer and its location on the dock?
How to provide battery capacity alerts at low cost?
The challenges are aimed at startups and SMEs: a duo is formed between a winner and the company sponsoring each challenge. For 3 months, each duo benefits from methodological support from thecamp, in particular during 3 sprints that are led by collective intelligence and innovation professionals. At the end of the 3 months, each duo presents the results of the challenge. The projects can then continue to be developed.
You can learn more about the solutions developed during the challenge, and see them embedded in their environment, using this 360° visualization tool (also compatible with virtual reality).
