Distributed coordination for collision avoidance of multiple ships considering ship maneuverability


"Over the past two decades, a number of methods have been proposed for solving maritime collision avoidance problems. Most of these works take a single ship's perspective and focus on one-to-one or one-to-many situations. To more complicated many-to-many situations, less attention has been paid. To deal with the many-to-many collision avoidance problem, this paper proposes a distributed coordinatio..." [More...]
