Optimizing Yacht Routes using Dynamic Programming

Abstract
A method for generating minimum time yacht routes for short distances while avoiding stationary obstacles and taking into account wave and water current disturbances is sought. The method should be feasible for use in an autopilot type construction. A solution is found using an iterative forumulation of the dynamic programming algorithm on a grided state space and an implementation in ANSI C is produced. Several other approaches are also examined. Finally, some aspects of constructing an autopilot based on the algorithm are discussed.
