Are you familiar with simulation and emulation and know how they differ from each other? With simulation, everything you see is an imitation of real life, while emulation provides an exact replication of how things behave and interact in the real world. The tools complement each other and are needed at different stages of the terminal life cycle.
Emulation is a hugely powerful tool for testing, optimising and training automated operations. If a terminal plans to implement a standardised automation system like Kalmar One, emulation can help to ensure the right equipment investment decisions are made as it can be used to verify how the automation system will control terminal operations before deciding which equipment to purchase.
The webinar will also include a practical case study featuring Kalmar AutoStrads.
