Paper Abstract

Knowing the position of the chute of cargo loading machinery situated in its working environment is a critical element for effectively accomplishing auto-loading of bulk cargo. This paper presents a novel approach to measure the position of the chute as well as the status of ship being loaded. A measuring device was designed according to the approach based on laser scanner and the measuring method was implemented. The system has been installed in actual cargo loading environment and proved successfully and is believed that it is a good starting point to this kind of usage.
