Applications of Traffic Conflict Analysis in the Setting of Ships' Routing Precautionary Areas

The proper setting of precautionary areas benefits the ships' routing running safely and efficiently. The paper aims at one waters which has been arranged to carry out the ships' routing, and based on the investigation analysis of traffic streams and tracking distribution, the times of traffic conflicts under different traffic flow are theoretically calculated and practically verified by applying traffic conflict technique theory. The authors put forward a method of precautionary areas setting. According to the theoretical analysis, the authors give a critical curve of traffic streams which can be used in practice to guide the setting of precautionary areas.
