A competitive multipopulation evolutionary algorithm for ship trajectory planning
Evolutionary Computation and Global Optimization 2008 / National Conference (11 ; 2-4.06.2008 ; Szymbark, Poland)
Determining the optimum trajectory for a ship between its current position and the assumed target point, done taking into account navigational situations which the ship is to face when covering this trajectory, was the subject of numerous publications but has not been finally solved yet. The authors propose to determine the optimum and safe ship trajectory using a competitive multipopulation evolutionary algorithm. The proposed algorithm will also allow the trajectory to be corrected depending on a current navigational situation, for instance the appearance of collision threat. Practical application of the algorithm would considerably relieve navigator's work, and contribute to the increase of safety at sea and reduction of ship operation costs.
