• Optimization-based motion planning for trawling 

      Haugen, Joakim; Imsland, Lars Struen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      This work presents an optimization-based motion planning system for trawling operations. The formulation makes use of simplistic physical descriptions of the vessel and fishing gear together with catch dynamics of sweeping ...
    • Path planning and collision avoidance for autonomous surface vehicles I: a review 

      Vagale, Anete; Oucheikh, Rachid; Bye, Robin Trulssen; Osen, Ottar Laurits; Fossen, Thor I. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Autonomous surface vehicles are gaining increasing attention worldwide due to the potential benefits of improving safety and efficiency. This has raised the interest in developing methods for path planning that can reduce ...
    • Path planning and collision avoidance for autonomous surface vehicles II: a comparative study of algorithms 

      Vagale, Anete; Bye, Robin Trulssen; Oucheikh, Rachid; Osen, Ottar; Fossen, Thor I. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Artificial intelligence is an enabling technology for autonomous surface vehicles, with methods such as evolutionary algorithms, artificial potential fields, fast marching methods, and many others becoming increasingly ...
    • Wave motion compensation in dynamic positioning of small autonomous vessels 

      Halvorsen, Håkon Skogland; Øveraas, Henning; Landstad, Olav; Smines, Vidar; Fossen, Thor I.; Johansen, Tor Arne (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Conventional dynamic positioning (DP) systems on larger ships compensate primarily for slowly time-varying environmental forces. In doing so, they use wave filtering to prevent the DP from compensating for the first-order ...
