MODEL EXPERIMENTS ON MANOEUVRABILITY AND AUTOMATIC NAVIGATION ON SETTLED ROUTE IN THE CIRCULATING WATER CHANNEL (THE THIRD REPORT)

The "auto-piloting" system is usually used with ships which navigate in a seaway. It is considered that the system has some connection with ship response to wave and the rudder, and with wave spectrum and precision of gyros. The authors designed a new auto-piloting system which minimizes the criterion function and the experiment with the automatic pilot was conducted. They suggest that the new "auto-piloting" system is not only theoretically valuable to show the optimal "weather adjustment" in auto-piloting system, but practical indeed.
