Challenge

Logistics is contributing 24% to GHG in Europe, and 29% in North America. And, as we have experienced during Covid, the just-in-time supply chain is very complex and has led to delayed deliveries and breakdowns. Therefore, it is time to re-think the supply chain to make it more resilient against crises and reduce their impact on greenhouse gas. A sustainable supply chain goes hand in hand with efficiency and is increasingly demanded by consumers. Consider the following examples:

  • A full truck load or container results in a lower GHG balance per good than half a load
  • An optimized delivery route will reduce the total distance covered and thus reduce GHG
  • The delivery of the correct good or precision quality raw material in the first place will reduce the return or discard quota, resulting in lower GHG as well
  • Prioritization of regional vendors and solutions leads to a smaller GHG footprint, increased resilience, and is demanded by a growing number of consumers
  • Detecting & Recognizing trucks before docking and preparing the goods to the gate can save a few minutes of loading time, making supply chain more efficient which leads to lowering GHG
  • Detecting goods and their volume accurately to allow for most efficient container loading
Events
Hackathon

AI on the edge allows learning and optimization over time. Think of intelligent cameras and sensors watching weather, traffic, street conditions and other patterns, robots delivering packages on the “last mile”, faster package sorting and moving in the warehouse, and smart stacking of boxes of all sizes to fully utilize the limited space of a container. AI on the edge would allow optimization, recommend certain actions and routes, and adjust on the fly according to changes or sudden events.

Your ideas and creativity are needed more than ever to bring new ideas and solutions to reality. The Transatlantic AI Hackathon – Sustainable Supply Chain DeepHack calls for your solutions by leveraging Edge AI devices and solutions.

Thanks to our generous sponsors Intel and Luxonis, you have the opportunity to use the OpenVINOTM toolkit and the OAK-D-Lite spatial AI camera for your solution, but you are not required to do so. We will ship the OAK-D-Lite spatial AI camera to all members of the selected teams for you to keep, and everyone can participate in the OpenVINOTM toolkit training sessions which are scheduled before the project submission deadline and will be accessible online as well.
