The CONTAIN project is on the right track. The results achieved in all the project components have been presented. One of the project developments, the innovative sensor system prototype focusing on the “empty container detection” aspect, will be applied in the Valencia Port demonstration: a prototype’s test-session in the Valencia Port area has been presented during the meeting.
The reviewer and the project officer appreciated the work done and recommended to foster the participation of relevant authorities in the CONTAIN demonstrations. This way the project’s results will be disseminated to the right people and the project outcome will be more likely to have a stronger impact on container security in EU while facilitating trade.
With the progress done, the consortium is moving forward to the three demonstrations foreseen in the project. After the technical partners detail the lists of technologies and prepare the specific scenarios, the demonstrations are foreseen to take place in Valencia, Genoa and Bologna during the last quarter of 2014 and beginning of 2015 respectively.
