In this Paper, two generic Line-of-Sight (LOS) sensing-based short-range guidance methodologies are presented for the docking of autonomous vehicles. The first method utilizes a passive LOS sensing scheme to provide vehicle corrective motions, while the latter method utilizes active sensing. The novelty of the proposed guidance methodologies is their applicability to situations that do not allow for direct proximity measurements of the vehicle. The ...
