Sailing Vessel Routing Considering Safety Zone and Penalty Time for Altering Course
1 Gdańsk University of Technology, Gdańsk, Poland
ABSTRACT: In this paper we introduce new model for simulation sea vessel routing. Besides a vessel types (polar diagram) and weather forecast, travel security and the number of maneuvers are considered. Based on these data both the minimal travelling costs and the minimal processing time are found for different vessels and different routes. To test our model the applications SailingAssistance wad improved. The obtained results shows that we can obtain quite acceptable results.
