On one hand, marine traffic has its special features and is fundamentally different from highway, air and pedestrian traffic. The existing traffic models cannot be simply extended to marine traffic without addressing marine traffic features. On the other hand, existing literature on marine traffic focuses on one ship or two ships but does not address the issues in marine traffic flow.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.07.01.14}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Marine Traffic, Marine Traffic Flow, Traffic Flow, Flow Model, Flow Theory, Traffic Flow of Ships, Ship Domain, Collision Avoidance System} }
