RESEARCH ON AUTOMATIC ROUGH SEA AVOIDANCE SYSTEM

As a step toward enabling the automatic operation of ships without crews, a system has been preliminarily developed that would allow the automatic avoidance of danger in rough seas. It is called the "Automatic Rough Seas Avoidance System (ARSAS)," and is described. Its first component, "Judge System on Dangerous Degree," integrates many research results on seakeeping performance to define the degree of danger confronting a ship. The second component, "Operating System to Avoid Danger," is based on artificial intelligence, making combined use of the captain's knowledge about the operating performance of a ship and exact information about current environmental conditions.
