Paper Abstract

Conventional adaptive autopilots adapt themselves to the changes of the ship dynamics and keep the heading in the desired direction even if the ship dynamics changes. The paper describes an adaptive autopilot with new algorithms which estimate the disturbances caused by the water waves and feedforward the estimated values to the controller with the feedforward gain adapted to the changes of the water wave characteristics. The algorithms have been proved to be effective by computer simulations and on-board tests.
