SLAM – Based Approach to Dynamic Ship Positioning

Dynamically positioned vessels, used by offshore industry, use not only satellite navigation but also different positioning systems, often referred to as ‘reference’ systems. Most of them use multiple technical devices located outside the vessel which creates some problems with their accessibility and performance. In this paper, a basic concept of reference system independent from any external device is presented, basing on hydroacoustics and Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) method. Theoretical analysis of its operability is also performed.
