Maneuvering model (own ship)

The development of a virtual test environment for remote control requires a real-time capable calculation of the ship’s movements in the water. For this purpose, maneuvering models must be further developed that can calculate the ship’s movements with high accuracy during the maneuvers to be performed (AP 7100). The further development of the models is based on previous and ongoing research projects and focuses in particular on the integration of the consideration of overtaking and passing procedures. The maneuvering models are parameterized (WP 7200) and validated (WP 7100 and WP 7200) by means of numerical simulations for the test vessel. Large-scale execution measurements are also used for parameterization and validation. The result is validated models for predicting the maneuvering behavior of the test vessel. The models must subsequently be adapted and integrated into an environment for real-time trajectory prediction.

The sensitivity of the prediction with respect to deviations of the input parameters as well as the termination criteria of the algorithms will be specifically investigated. Lastly, a digital twin of the test vessel will be created in which the maneuvering models and trajectory prediction will be embedded into a control engineering model that can interact with the shore-based control station environment. The digital twin is used to develop the virtual test environment for the remote control of the test ship and is tested via comparison to full-scale execution measurements with the real test ship.
