Passage Planning System in Ports: An overview
1 Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Kowloon, Hung Hom, Hong Kong
ABSTRACT: A conceptual model is proposed to monitor marine traffic through precautionary areas, which can provide us with a systematic control of passage planning in ports. On one hand, vessel traffic control has its special features and is fundamentally different from highway, air and pedestrian traffic control. The existing traffic control systems cannot be simply extended to vessel traffic control without addressing marine traffic features. On the other hand, existing vessel traffic control focuses on one ship or two ships but does not address the flows of marine traffic.
