Tideworks Technology Inc., a provider of software for terminal management and planning, has released the latest version of Terminal View. The three-dimensional system allows port and intermodal operators to zoom into any area of the terminal, and monitor operations on a real-time basis. They can view moves that were assigned to equipment, and modify those moves by placing them on hold or reassigning them to other equipment. When deployed in conjunction with Differential Global Positioning Systems (DGPS) or other locating technologies, the system shows the current status and location of equipment throughout the terminal. The program utilizes filters, colors and other graphical aids that represent various operations in a three-dimensional view. Terminal View is part of the vendor's Traffic Control system, which allows for control of container-handling equipment and the electronic dispatching of work instructions. The combined system eliminates the need for paper instructions, and optimizes the utilization of handling equipment, the company said. Available on a standalone basis, Traffic Control has also been fully integrated with DGPS and can be used with rubber tire gantries, top picks and side picks.
