The vessel is controlled by three propellers: the bow thruster, the stern thruster and the main propeller. The autopilot is designed with 5 fuzzy logic controllers. It works in Matlab-Simulink and tested on a scaled physical model of a tanker in the lake environment.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Autopilot, Matlab, Fuzzy Logic Controller, Simulation, Stopping Vessel, Full Mission Control Autopilot, Waypoint, Manoeuvring} }
