Abstract

This paper introduces selected methods of a game theory for ship collision avoidance at sea. The application of game control algorithms to determine a ship’s safe trajectory, whilst passing other encountered ships in good and restricted visibility at sea, is presented. Regarding the methods of comparison for the safe ship’s control in a collision situation, multi-stage positional noncooperative and cooperative games and multi-step matrix non-cooperative and cooperative games have been introduced. The considerations have been illustrated with examples of computer simulations of the algorithms to determine the safety of the ship’s trajectories in a navigational situation of restricted visibility in the Kattegat Strait. Keywords: game theory, marine systems, safety analysis, risk, ship control, computer simulation.
