The method plans safe tracks of all ships involved in an encounter including speed reduction maneuvers, if necessary, and taking into account Rule 10 of COLREGS, which specifies ships? behavior within Traffic Separation Schemes governed by IMO. The paper focuses on the evaluation phase of the evolutionary process and shows how fitness function is designed to compare various possible tracks as well as to assess the quality of a final solution. The impact of the fitness function on the method?s results is illustrated by examples.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.07.02.18}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Evolutionary Algorithms, Collision Avoidance, Track Planning, Traffic Separation Scheme (TSS), Evaluation of Individuals, Colregs, Ship's Trajectory, Fitness Function} }
