ON THE DESIGN OF MARINE TRAFFIC CONTROL SYSTEM, 2ND REPORT: A DISTRIBUTED PROBLEM SOLVING APPROACH

The authors suggest a new design for a marine traffic control system in which responsibilities are distributed over all ships in the area. They propose, too, that it involve a new maneuvering style called "cooperative maneuvering." They develop a problem solving approach that can implement that new style. The most important feature of this style is intership communication. The distribution of control involves a varitey of problems, such as that of how ships should talk with each other and of how best to make action decisions that do not interfere with the actions of other ships. A distributed problem solving approach that addresses the nature of cooperation is developed to deal with these difficulties.
