Fredagskollokvium: Towards autonomous marine operations and systems

Asgeir Johan Sørensen, Director Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems (AMOS) Department of Marine Technology Norwegian University of Science and Technology,NTNU 

Marine Cybernetics, also denoted as marine control system engineering, is the science about techniques and methods for analysis, monitoring and control of marine/maritime systems applied within offshore oil and gas, maritime transportation, fisheries and aquaculture, ocean science, offshore renewable energy and marine mining. Marine Cybernetics is on how marine/maritime dynamical systems can be automatically controlled in order to make them behave according to one or multi-control objectives in their environment of operation in the ocean space subject to ocean waves and current, wind loads and even ice for arctic operations. To be able to develop marine control systems it is necessary to gain a thorough understanding of the physical process and knowledge of modeling and analysis; design, synthesis and analysis of control algorithms; optimization; computer-based implementation; and finally testing and verification. In this presentation, we will give a brief overview of the field, presenting research trends and challenges related to autonomous marine operations and systems. In particular, selected research topics related to unmanned systems and autonomy carried out at Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems (AMOS) will be presented.
