Abstract Maritime accidents have been imposing various risks to individuals and societies in terms of human and property loss, and environmental consequences. For probabilistic risk analysis and management, collision candidate detection is the first step. Therefore, it is of great importance to further improve methods to detect possible collision scenarios. This paper proposes a Time Discrete Non-linear Velocity Obstacle (TD-NLVO) method for collision candidate detection, which is based on the N...

Abstract Ship domain is often used in marine navigation and marine traffic engineering as a safety condition. The basic idea behind those applications is that an encounter of two or more ships can be considered safe if neither of ship domains is intruded by other ships. Research utilising this approach has been documented in numerous works, including publications on optimising collision avoidance manoeuvres performed to fulfil domain-based safety conditions. However, up to this point there has b...

Ship safety domain is a term which is widely used in research on collision avoidance and traffic engineering among others. Classic ship domains have been compared in multiple reports. However, up till now there has been no work summing up contemporary research in this field. The paper offers a systematic and critical review of the newer ship domain models and related research. It discusses multiple differences in approach to ship domain concept: from definitions and safety criteria, through rese...

Abstract The paper suggests a new method of collision avoidance stemming from the concept of the polygonal target ship domain. Since the last century, we have witnessed the current typical ship domains classified and described. In this proposition, firstly, the domain is a geometrical manner which is used in both analytical and statistical method, resulting in the signification of practical application and simulation. Secondly, such domain will be applied to target ship under the combination of ...

We use danger immune algorithm to optimize ship collision avoidance strategy.Collision avoidance operations are encoded as the individuals of optimization algorithm.The collision avoidance theory and ship motion mathematical model are used.The system will output a safe and economical collision avoidance strategy. Marine collision accidents cause a great loss of lives and property. As a possible solution, the danger immune algorithm is used to achieve ship collision avoidance strategy optimizatio...

Computing time and decision correctness are the measurable indicators in vessel collision risk (CR) assessment. However, the existing CR assessment approaches, based on fuzzy theory or neural network, have lower accuracy and longer computing times. To overcome these drawbacks and obtain a compromised evaluation, an approach of vessel CR assessment based on the Dempster–Shafer (D–S) evidence theory is proposed in this paper. Considering that CR is associated with the membership functions correspo...

Due to high density of vessel traffic, busy waterways are water areas with high potential for collisions. The application of AIS makes it possible to investigate accurate and actual behavior of collision-involved ships, and benefits vessel traffic management and waterways design for these areas. As a case study, the authors focus on a Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS) off Rotterdam Port in Europe, and using AIS data, statistical analysis is made for collision involved ships. In order to identify t...

One of the basic tasks in shipping is to ensure safe navigation of vessels. The concept of the ship domain is of major importance in the assessment of a navigational situation and the avoidance of ship collisions. It is difficult to determine a ship domain as its shape and size depend on a number of factors. One question to be answered before the determination of the ship domain is which method to use: statistical, analytic, or expert method using artificial intelligence tools; other questions a...

Abstract Although road-based freight transport has large external costs, it currently dominates the hinterland cargo transport sector in Europe. An increase of the automation levels of inland cargo vessels could advance their competitiveness, hence unlocking more sustainable inland cargo transport. Moreover, these improvements could pave the way for a potential future paradigm shift towards unmanned inland cargo vessels. Therefore, this study investigates the design of an experimental platform i...
