CONSIDERATIONS TO THE PROBABILITIES OF COLLISION OF SHIPS BY A MODEL OF COLLISION AVOIDING SYSTEM

An improved model of a collision avoiding system in the present paper was represented by two parameters called the intensity and the Allowance of Collision Avoiding Maneuvers, of which the practical meanings of ship nandling were discussed. The model was applied to ships navigating through the ten narrow channels in Japan in order to study the feasibility of the model. The probabilities of collision of ships at each channel by the model were compared with their statistical rates of collision there in last five years and their agreements were found to be good except the low values of the probabilities of collision. Based on the model, the situations of collision and the factors which had influences on collision were quantitatively investigated. The model made it possible to evaluate the probabilities of collision based on the effects of traffic controls and endeavors of navigators to prevent collision.
