报告题目:Cyber-Physical Internet (CPI): Next-generation of resilient logistics of manufactured products

报告人:香港理工大学黄国全讲座教授

报告摘要:

The talk is about a major research project on Cyber-Physical Internet (CPI) recently initiated in Hong Kong. Its vision is to establish a new paradigm for sending and receiving manufactured goods just like sending and receiving instant messages over the internet using online chatting platforms. Four innovations are critical to achieving this ultimate vision: (1) digitization architecture for entangling the flows of information and materials into one flow of cyber-physical objects for manufacturing and logistics operations; (2) network services for configuring local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN) and catchment area network (CAN); (3) value mechanisms to motivate and facilitate participation and collaboration between multiple stakeholders including shippers, carriers, forwarders; and (4) decision analytics for synchronized logistics planning, scheduling and execution. These innovations are based upon some fundamental breakthroughs of CPI routers and TCP/PIP (Transmission Control Protocol / Physical Internet Protocol) protocols that are yet to be developed. CPI contributes to establishing post-pandemic “new norms” while logistics resilience and CO2 emission targets are achieved.
