Knowledge Representation in a Ship's Navigational Decision Support System
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: Supporting the navigator in decision making processes may substantially contribute to the enhancement of the safety in sea transport. The navigational decision support system supplements the existing range of equipment and systems intended for sea-going ship conduct. One of the basic tasks of such systems is an analysis of a navigational situation and solving collision situations. A well functioning navigational decision support system should feature a decision-maker?s (navigator?s) knowledge representation. This refers to both explicit knowledge - procedural, declarative, heuristic, and tacit knowledge - empirical associations. The article presents assumptions of navigational knowledge base and its realization in the presently designed navigational decision support system.
