Summary: A ship moving from a point $$A$$ to a point $$B$$ detects a moving small obstacle at close range. Hence, the ship has to perform a maneuver to avoid collision with the moving obstacle. Using a realistic model of a tanker ship, a method is proposed for computing feasible rudder command strategies for performing the collision-avoidance maneuver.
