Maritime situational awareness now greatly benefits from AIS (Automatic Identification System). The most fundamental function a maritime situational awareness system should provide is vessel trajectory analysis. Previous work has shown the necessity of vessel trajectory partitioning before further analysis, but limited work existed for this problem. With billions of AIS messages received every month, computational complexity should be concerned as well as preciseness, and there is room for both… CONTINUE READING
