Assessment of Navigational Safety in Vessel Traffic in an Open Area
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: The assessment of a navigational situation is of major importance for safe vessel conduct as well as countermeasures and reduction of threats resulting from undesired events. These events include, among others, technical failures and human errors. To describe cause and effect relationships fault tree and event tree analyses are used. An algorithm has been presented for the determination of vessel collision probability in an open area, based on the methods mentioned.
