In order to study the Automatic Collision-Avoidance (ACA) actions of vessels in overtaking situation accord with rules of International Regulation for Preventing Collision at Sea (COLREGS 72) and ordinary practice of seaman, stags of vessel’s encounter process were separated by Collision Risk Index (CRI) and Time to Immediate Danger (TID).The reason is correct Collision-Avoidance (CA) actions in different stages are different. CRI and TID are derived from defined Situation Elements (SE). Then computing models of them and ACA actions in different stages were presented. The basis of research is center moved ship’s ellipse domain theories and MMG three-free dimensional digital model that is calculated from ship’s hydrodynamic equations. The following were proved by simulations: The mathematic models presented ensured rapid and reliable convergence of SE computing; new CRI model is much more accord with the thinking process of navigators and practice at sea than before; ACA action accord with COLREGS rules and ordinary practice of seaman, can be produced by program. The research may make big advance to the final achievement of ACA of ship in overtaking situation.

Maritime traffic is becoming more complex every day. At present, due to technological advances and to new maritime regulations, there is increasing demand for new nautical marine instruments to be installed into the bridge, and the breadth of navigational information complicates on-duty officers' decisions. Therefore, if decision support tools can be used to help deal with navigational decision-making, human errors arising from subjective judgments can be reduced, and sea transport safety improv...

The paper introduces a new approach to solving multi-ship encounter situations by combining some of the assumptions of game theory with evolutionary programming techniques. A multi-ship encounter is here modelled as a game played by "thinking players" -- the ships of different and possibly changing strategies. The solution -- an optimal set of cooperating (non-colliding) trajectories is then found by means of evolutionary algorithms. The paper contains the description of the problem formulation ...

A ship has to move from a point A to a point B and, on its way, has to circumvent an obstacle. In addition, the presence of a sea current is assumed. Using a realistic model of a tanker ship, a method is proposed for computing feasible control trajectories for the navigation of the ship.

This paper outlines the concept of a domain and an evasion area, called an arena, around a ship which are then applied to produce a computer model of ship behaviour. The arena determines when a ship takes avoiding action, as does the land arena which reacts with a discrete series of coastal points to prevent the ship running aground.

The thesis is an attempt to establish the water area required by any one ship for safe and efficient navigation. The concept of a ship domain has been considered, which may be defined as the effective area around a ship which a navigator would like to keep free with respect to other ships and stationary objects. This area will not be the same for all ships but will depend on a variety of factors such as speed, size of ship and density of traffic among others. The first part of the project was co...
