Several studies on ship maneuvering models have been conducted using captive model tests or computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and physical models, such as the maneuvering modeling group (MMG) model. A new system identification method for generating a low-speed maneuvering model using recurrent neural networks (RNNs) and free running model tests is proposed in this study. We especially focus on a low-speed maneuver such as the final phase in berthing to achieve automatic berthing control…

Saddle Point Optimization with Approximate Minimization Oracle and Its Application to Robust Berthing Control

An approach to saddle point optimization relying only on oracles that solve minimization problems approximately using the (1+1)-CMA-ES as the minimization oracle is proposed and is shown to outperform several existing approaches on test problems.



System Parameter Exploration of Ship Maneuvering Model for Automatic Docking / Berthing using CMA-ES

The berthing simulation with the parameters obtaining by the proposed method showed better agreement with the free-running model test than parameters obtained by the CMT, and required fewer data amounts than a CMTbased scheme.

A recursive neural networks model for ship maneuverability prediction

In this paper, a recursive neural networks model is developed and applied to simulate the maneuvers of a tanker, which is full and may have inherent poor coursekeeping ability. In the present model,

Modeling of ship maneuvering motion using neural networks

In this paper, Neural Networks (NNs) are used in the modeling of ship maneuvering motion. A nonlinear response model and a linear hydrodynamic model of ship maneuvering motion are also investigated.

Introduction of MMG standard method for ship maneuvering predictions

A lot of simulation methods based on Maneuvering Modeling Group (MMG) model for ship maneuvering have been presented. Many simulation methods sometimes harm the adaptability of hydrodynamic force

Application of optimal control theory based on the evolution strategy (CMA-ES) to automatic berthing

The authors solved the off-line automatic berthing problem and attempted to apply the covariance matrix adaption evolution strategy (CMA-ES), which is considered state-of-the-art in evolutionary computation approaches for optimization of real-valued variables.

White-Black-Box Hybrid Model Identification Based on RM-RF for Ship Maneuvering

A new system identification scheme based on model reference and random forest (RM-RF), was used to model ship maneuvering and showed the feasibility of the identification modeling scheme and validated the generalizability of the proposed approach.
