ABSTRACT: The automatic collision avoidance system introduced in this paper is a system constantly calculating optimal manoeuvring method from the risk and economic preference in the ship manoeuvring space where the course change and the deceleration are performed. The authors also propose a system that quantitatively evaluates the collision avoidance manoeuvring results. Based on the evaluation results of this system, the authors are setting parameters so that ship manoeuvring that does not give anxiety to target ships to be avoided is also realized in automatic collision avoidance manoeuvring. In addition, comparison between the manoeuvring results of the automatic collision avoidance system and the veteran captain's manoeuvring results was quantitatively compared by the proposed evaluation system. Verification experiments were successfully conducted to verify the effectiveness of the proposed automatic collision avoidance system on the actual ship navigating in congested waters.
