Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

An electronic on-board recorder for intermodal drayage operations
by Browning, Andrew, M.S., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 137; 1517591
Abstract (Summary)

This paper makes the case for the development of a drayage specific electronic on-board recorder that can be tested in and around the twin ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles. The goal of this device is to gather data that can then be processed and used to reduce port congestion, reduce drayage cost and reduce port-related air pollution. This paper will describe drayage operations and the problem to be solved. It will then review the background literature on drayage optimization, the requirements and specifications for the device, the design choices made during development, the software's underlying algorithms and data structures, device testing, possible future data analysis and then present conclusions.
