Verification of a Deterministic Ship's Safe Trajectory Planning Algorithm from Different Ships’ Perspectives and with Changing Strategies of Target Ships
Times cited (SCOPUS): 3
ABSTRACT: The paper presents results of a ship's safe trajectory planning method verification - the Trajectory Base Algorithm, which is a deterministic approach for real-time path-planning with collision avoidance. The paper presents results of the algorithm’s verification from different ships’ perspectives and with changing strategies of target ships. Results prove the applicability of the algorithm in the Collision Avoidance Module of the Autonomous Navigation System for Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships.
