The results obtained from the model are compared with the results of an analysis of near-collisions based on recorded AIS data and then with the historical data on maritime accidents in the Gulf of Finland. The causation factor is obtained for three different meeting types, for a chosen location and prevailing traffic conditions there.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Anti-Collision, Collision Avoidance, Gulf of Finland, Ship Domain, Probability Estimation, Minimum Distance to Collision (MDTC), Geometrical MDTC Model, Ship-Ship Collision Probability} }
