Navigation Safety Assessment in the Restricted Area with the Use of ECDIS
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: This paper presents an analysis of vessel safety parameters used in the ECDIS system while navigating in restricted areas. Apart from defining their priorities, a group of parameters indispensable for the safe navigation in restricted waters is identified. The function of ship domain is proposed on the basis of safety parameters defined in the ECDIS system. This function may be utilized in the navigation decision support system that uses ECDIS data and included as a new function in the ECDIS system.
