Control Of Vessels' Dynamics


Overview of modelling and marine simulation tools, based on space of states and Laplace transformation. Modelling and predicting safe manoeuvring of vessels, taking into account IMO standards, the elliptical domain of the ship.

Modelling of modern vessels and models for model verification.


Goals and competencies

The subject provides the basis for modelling and verification, with which planners shorten the period of finishing, and users more comprehensively learn about the properties of the system. The predicted development of autonomous vessels exploits the latest achievements of robotics and the theory of processing signals and data. The course provides basic practical and theoretical knowledge in this field, on the basis of which students will be facilitated to monitor and accept the results of this development.
