Maritime transportation engineering is a technical field that observes the flow of vessels' traffic in accurate and describes the feature of ship's movement statistically or analytically, then contributes to the improvement of traffic flow and the safety of traffic.
The flow of marine traffic can be controlled by carrying out assessment and analysis of vessels' traffic. It can realize the safety of marine traffic by accurate research and analysis of vessel's traffic, understanding its flow and analysis data of vessel traffic. Moreover, it will be keeping safe and efficient ship's route, design of harbour and improvement of facilities for harbour.
In chapter 2 shows a method of assessment and analysis of marine traffic at present. It has many problems, wastes lots of human effort, cost and also it is not so good accuracy and reliance. Therefore it needs the automatic system to solve the problems.
The analysis system of marine traffic was developed based on RADAR and ENC on this study
In chapter 3, showed development of the marine traffic analysis system and described H/W and S/W of the system. In case of the traffic assessment, the system connected with RADAR saves accurate information of vessel traffic and makes database. Carrying out analysis of vessel traffic can display the result of traffic analysis promptly.
In chapter 4, actual assessment and analysis of marine traffic were carried out by the developed system and were shown the process and the result report.
The developed system can reduce human work and cost, cuts down spending of time in analysis. It takes more accurate result before than, because the analysis work is operated by computer. Eventually, the marine traffic analysis system contributes to safety of marine traffic through the design of marine traffic route, harbour facilities and improvement of vessels' traffic flow.
