Abstract (Summary)

Shipping ports and terminals are usually very busy with high traffic duration times. The high trafficked areas of shipping terminals at ports often contribute to the high density traffic volume which affects the community and the port by possibly extending commuters' travel time, delaying shipments of goods, and potentially being a safety hazard. Location-based services would be able to measure the time a vehicle enters and exits the terminals at the port. Location-based services such as geofencing would help determine entry and exit times of vehicles. These services would be used in hopes of determining an efficient way to reduce traffic conditions by notifying terminals of entry and departure times of vehicles. By gathering travel times of vehicles, a process could be developed by representatives of the terminals at the port to more efficiently operate. A system which consists of two architectures is built to gather adequate travel times. The first system is a server side application with REST endpoints exposed and the second application is a client side application which consumes those endpoints. This study provides an analysis and implementation on how location-based services establishes a means to measure entry and exit times of vehicles moving through geofenced gates.
