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.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.09.04.04}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Vessel Traffic Service (VTS), Passage Planning, Traffic Control, Maritime Traffic, Sea Ports, Passage Planning System in Ports, Vessel Traffic Control, Passage Planning System (PPS)} }
