AUTOPILOT FOR SHIP CONTROL. PART 1. THEORETICAL DESIGN

A self-tuning autopilot has been designed, which is capable, in theory, of adapting to both course keeping and manoeuvring duties and to changes in a ship's state or environment <speed, loading, depth of water, sea state, etc.>. It should also be capable of dealing with nonzero-mean disturbances. Simulation studies are described in Part 2 of this paper.
