Abstract: - Accurate ship Path following is an issue of the Marine Navigation Technology. In order to achieve accurate path following in ship navigation various controllers like PID (Proportional-Integral-Derivative), Adaptive and Predictive controllers are used. However, the main problem of ships is the PID controller is that they are set to work under specific conditions. Even though predictive controllers have predictive capability and are giving accurate results but they are computationally complex. In this work an attempt is made to evaluate the performance of Adaptive (Fuzzy logic) and PID controllers in terms of tracking efficiency and computational time. Computational result evaluated using mat lab shows that Adaptive (Fuzzy logic) provides better tracking performance than PID.
