Jesús M. de la Cruz García, Joaquín Aranda Almansa, José M. Girón Sierra


La Automática es una disciplina horizontal muchos de cuyos temas se aplican en el campo del sector marítimo, como son: la robótica, la ingeniería de control, la inteligencia artificial, el modelado y la simulación, los sensores y los actuadores. En este trabajo hacemos una revisión de los avances que han tenido lugar en los últimos años desde el punto de vista del modelado, la identificación y el control de los vehículos marinos.

Palabras clave

Sistemas marinos; autopilotos; posicionamiento dinámico; estabilización del alabeo; modelado; identificación y control de vehículos marinos; sistemas sub actuados; hidrodinámica
