Abstract:

Autonomous sail boats are good candidates for long term oceanic surveys, since they use wind power as their main mean of propulsion. Controlling a sail boat is typically not easy because of variability of the wind and drifts. In this paper, we describe how we set up controls and strategies to sail upwind with a real model sail boat. We here present the experimental results obtained in some tests at the lake Zurich, where we had let the boat sail following a precomputed path. The collected data will help us improving the upwind sailing task.
