Application of a decision support tool for the collision avoidance of a container vessel

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution book

Abstract

In this paper, a decision support tool for collision avoidance is presented. The collision probability of the investigated container vessel is estimated using a 3-step approach. In this methodology, the manoeuvrability and the propulsion system performance of the own vessel is taken into account, increasing the accuracy of the collision risk probability. The results of the validation process are presented and the collision risk probability at various near miss counter scenarios is evaluated. Moreover, the methodology presented herein, allows the holistic assessment of the impact that actions in accordance to the IMO COLREGs or violating them have. They are all included in the selection of the optimum control options to minimize the risk of a collision as sea.
