Sébastien Lemaire and Yu Cao and Thomas Kluyver and Daniel Hausner and Camil Vasilovici and Zhong-yuen Lee and Umberto José Varbaro and Sophia M. Schillai
2019 arXiv   pre-print
A decision for the best tack manoeuvre needs to be made based on weather and available tack implementations. This paper develops an adaptive probabilistic tack manoeuvre decision method.  ...  To move upwind, sailing vessels have to cross the wind by tacking.  ...  When the routing towards a waypoint, all sailing vessels rely on manoeuvres to cross the wind: tacking, where the vessel turns with the bow facing towards the wind, or jibing, where the vessel turns with  ...

to take measures in avoiding a collision by the authorised vessels manoeuvring within close proximity of it.  ...  FPSO vessels have a risk profile different from fixed platforms and commercial trading tankers and in addition, passing ships also pose a collision risk if an FPSO vessel is close to a sailing route.  ...
