Integration Sea and River Ports – the Challenge of the Croatian Transport System for the 21st Century

This paper discusses the indicators of development possibilities for sea ports of national importance which are opened for public traffic: Rijeka, Ploče, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik, as well as for inland water ports: Vukovar, Osijek, Slavonski Brod and Sisak. Development of traffic and logistic integration processes have been proposed for Croatian sea and river ports,…

Wind Disturbance Suppression in Autopilot Design

Environmental conditions affects ship’s course. Hence, it affects velocity, and efficiency of fuel consumption, which is an important research topic nowadays. Therefore, it is important to take it into account in the design of ship’s autopilots. In this paper a method is proposed to compensate for wind’s influence, which is based on wavelet transform by…
