This article outlines the features of five highly automated quayside container cranes which were recently delivered to two ports in Japan. The cranes use an electric anti-sway device in lieu of a mechanical one and have independent cabs which move independently from the trolley with the conventional cab. The operator can operate the crane semi-automatically in a comfortable environment which is separated from trolley movement.
