This paper is to suggest a novel design for ship tracking control of the benchmark Norrbin nonlinear ship model under relaxed conditions. The challenges of the problem under investigation include the uncertain or absent information of the model time constant, the uncertain reference course, and the intrinsic environmental disturbances. We formulate the ship tracking control problem in terms of a nonlinear output regulation problem with unknown control direction and uncertain exosystems. To solve the problem, we first adopt a novel internal model candidate to convert the output regulation problem into a stabilization problem for an augmented system. Then, a Nussbaum‐gain‐based stabilizer is developed for the augmented system to complete the design. Simulation results are presented to show the effectiveness of the proposed controller.
