Sea-State Estimation

The research project on sea-state estimation deals with estimation of wave height, direction and frequency from the vehicle's response. Different types of sensors can be used such as IMUs and RTK GNSS. Both zero speed applications (DP ships and marine structures), and ships in transit are studied. The latter requires that the encounter frequency is estimated on-line.
