Summary: The goal of the project is to acquire and develop
techniques and knowledge for the development of marine vehicles able
for cooperative tasks. Specifically, the research focus on two aspects:
(a) the development of control systems and algoritms for manoeuvring
and dynamic positioning of several types of ships, in adverse conditions,
and (b) the design and implementation of strategies for the autonomous
and cooperating behaviour of the vehicles.
Applications: Open seas tasks requiring dynamic positioning
(transferring, oil explotation), and cooperative actions such towing,
salvagement and rescue.
Systems: Research scale models will be designed
and bulit. The scaled vehicles will be used as a bechmarck for the
control, behaviour and cooperation systems developed.
