Abstract

This paper presents the design of a surveillance night vision system for marine ships. Both a hardware system and software modules for tracking control are developed. In order to control each control axis with compensation for ship motion, the two-degree of freedom(TDF) PID controller is designed and its parameters are tuned using a real-coded genetic algorithm(RCGA). Simulation demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed system.
