Using AIS data for navigational risk assessment in restricted waters

A risk assessment method using AIS data is proposed for restricted waters such as for the Strait of Malacca and Singapore, which considers the Traffic Density, directions of traffic flow, and probability of navigational failure.

Near Miss Detection for Encountering Ships in Sunda Strait

Sunda Strait has played an essential role to the Indonesian marine transportation. Safety of navigation is one issue that often leads to an accident, especially ship collision. A collision risk

Modelling of Ship Collision Frequency in The Strait of Malacca and Singapore (SOMS) Influenced by Indonesian Port Development

: The Strait of Malacca and Singapore (SOMS) is one of the busiest shipping channel lies between sea water territory of Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia. The strait becomes a very important part of

Ship Collision Risk Assessment Based on Collision Detection Algorithm

This study aims to build a unified framework of collision risk assessment which does not need to build different models in accordance with the ship domain and could provide a reference on furthering enhance the navigational safety for the Maritime and Port Authority.

An Advanced Method of Collision Risk Assessment in terms of Encountering Ships

In the risk management of maritime transportation, near-miss collisions by ships comprise a significant risk. Under the background of intelligent transportation, the emergence of technologies such as

A Systematic Approach for Collision Risk Analysis based on AIS Data

A method of improved Vessel Collision Risk Operator (VCRO) to merge risk assessments of both ships is proposed through integration of near-miss collision risks in a systematic way, which overcomes the disadvantages of prior VCROs that only consider the maximum value.



The Ship Domain : A Criterion of Navigational Safety Assessment in an Open Sea Area

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

A Statistical Study of Ship Domains

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

A Unified Measure Of Collision Risk Derived From The Concept Of A Ship Domain

The paper introduces a new measure of collision risk derived from the concept of a ship domain. Its simplicity and the fact that it takes into account the courses of both ships, makes it a good

Simulation results demonstrate that the proposed quaternion ship domain (QSD) is more effective and more flexible than other ship domains, and that the intelligent SCR based on the FQSD are reasonable and dependable.

On a risk management analysis of oil spill risk using maritime transportation system simulation

This methodology which integrates simulation of Maritime Transportation Systems with incident/accident data collection, expert judgment elicitation and a consequence model, and recent advances with respect to this methodology are described.

Comments on Ship Domains

The ship domain is a very important and useful concept in marine traffic engineering. It has been widely used in traffic simulation models, for encounter criteria, traffic lane design criteria, VTS

Methods for probabilistic safety assessments of ships

This paper examines the following points: a holistic methodology for risk evaluation, a method used in the process of estimating the probability of collision; a method to reduce the numbers of fire escalation scenarios; a trial risk evaluation of cabin fire.

A Risk Management Procedure for the Washington State Ferries

The probability of ferry collisions in the Washington state ferry system was assessed using a dynamic simulation methodology that extends the scope of available data with expert judgment and made detailed risk management recommendations to the blue-ribbon panel and the Washington State Transportation Commission.


This article discusses the problem of safe navigation of the English Channel and the North Sea, particularly in the case of very large cargo ships. A fundamental aim of the discussion is to assess

A Computer Simulation of Multi-Ship Encounters

In a previous paper a model was outlined for an encounter between two vessels. This paper shows how the model has been developed to include the simulation of the behaviour of more than two ships, the
