Sailing yachts have great potential to act as future long-term oceanic observing platforms, yet to date there have not been complete autonomous sailing systems robust enough to handle long term operation in the harsh and continually changing ocean environment. The basis of control system design is a mathematical model capable of describing and capturing the physics based dynamics of the sailboat. The mathematical model represents the system to be controlled, however, a sailing yacht is a very… CONTINUE READING
