The aim of the VIT project is the development of innovative technologies for automatic and secure handling of containers and swap bodies for intermodal shipment, primarily functional to the Metrocargo project. In particular the VIT project will address the two critical problems that are still open in Metrocargo: (i) to visually identify the containers corner fittings where the lifting equipment needs to operate; (ii)to assure the general safety and security of the operations of an intermodal terminal.
