Martin Castonguay is the Research Leader of Precision Forestry for FPInnovations.
Martin will be joining us at ForestTECHX to share on Automated Truck Dispatch Systems for Log Hauling.
An automated truck dispatch system was developed to allow a truck driver to request a trip that will be optimized based on logistical criteria. The approach developed by FPI is based on a complete server-less system. The decision making process is initiated on demand and the entire process occurs in the cloud (Microsoft Azure). A pilot system has been implemented to dispatch trips based on the optimal haul time for every request taking into account shift duration, wait time at loaders and time left at the end of the shift.
Don’t miss your chance to hear from Martin!
