In terms of the complex "Virtual Terminal and Device Emulators” of the competence area Optimisation and Simulation in Bremerhaven, the project ViTO - Virtual Terminal Optimisation has been processed and is constantly being further developed. The aim of ViTO is to test and to optimise strategies of a terminal’s IT system to control the devices virtually - without a fault of the operating process and in terms of risk reduction. Therefore, ViTO uses so-called emulators.
ViTO consists of a basic development by means of a financing structure of the State of Bremen as well as a transfer project with the terminal operators Eurogate in Bremerhaven. The development of ViTO has a high relevance because growing demand is seen for the use of device emulators in the port environment. Further information about the tool or the simulation and optimisation of business processes can be found in our consulting area.
