Simulated helmsmen are treated as individuals in population, which through environmental sensing and evolutionary algorithms learns to perform given task efficiently. The task is: safe navigation through heavy wind channels. Neuroevolutionary algorithms, which develop artificial neural networks through evolutionary operations, have been applied in this system.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Wind Environment, Ship Handling, Neuroevolutionary Ship Handling, Neuroscience Methods, Marine Navigation, Intelligent Ship, Intelligent Ship Handling System, Evolutionary Algorithms} }
