The Comparison of Safe Control Methods in Marine Navigation in Congested Waters
1 Gdynia Maritime University, Gdynia, Poland
ABSTRACT: The paper introduces comparison of five methods of safe ship control in collision situation: multi-stage positional non-cooperative and cooperative game, multi-step matrix game, dynamic and kinematics optimisation with neural constrains of state control process. The synthesis of computer navigator decision supporting algorithms with using dual linear programming and dynamic programming methods has been presented. The considerations have been illustrated an examples of a computer simulation the algorithms to determine the safe own ship's trajectory in situation of passing a many of the ships encountered at sea.
