Abstract

Automated control of Autonomous Sailing Robots (ASR) is a recent challenge. In this paper we first describe the prototype which has been designed at ISAE to the purpose of crossing the Atlantic Ocean autonomously. The performance of an ASR is closely dependent to the actual sailing conditions: wind, current, waves, etc. We present a new control solution which is aimed to constantly adapt to the best expected performance. Simulation and experimental results are given
