COLLISION AVOIDANCE BETWEEN SURFACE SHIPS AT SHORT RANGES
The present state of the art in collision avoidance is reviewed. Some of the existing obstacles are emphasized in context to the present work. Encounters at short ranges between Mariner class ships have been simulated on the computer. Trajectories were obtained using nonlinear maneuverability theory and the actual dimensions of the ships were included. Initial ranges and relative bearings leading to an avoidable collision were determined for various speeds under different restraints. The effect of coordinated maneuvers was also investigated.
