AN INTELLIGENT AUTOMATIC GUIDANCE SYSTEM FOR SURFACE SHIPS

This paper considers the possibility of a fully automatic intelligent ship guidance system that is able to track, with a high degree of accuracy, a pre-defined state trajectory. Built within the system is the ability to make decisions when there is a potential hazard on its predetermined route, and take, automatically, with due regard to international regulations, corrective action. The paper reviews the current state of hardware and software and demonstrates, using highly accurate simulation models of surface vessels, the feasibility of such a system.
