How to prevent maritime border collision for fisheries – A design of Real-Time Automatic Identification System

Authors – Krishnan Saravanan Selva Aswini Raghvendra Kumar Le Hoang Son
Methodology Article First Online: 05 November 2018

Abstract

Maritime Border Collision is one of the vital concerns in coastal states since the maritime boundaries of any two countries cannot be identified easily during fishing.

Maritime domain awareness and the border line control are the essential requirement which happens via recognition, and observing of boats inside their country boundary.

It is necessary to identify the maritime border and alert the fisherman during the fishing.

Received: 30 October 2018 / Revised: 10 March 2019 / Accepted: 11 March 2019 / Published: 15 March 2019

Abstract
In order to monitor and manage vessels in channels effectively, identification and tracking are very necessary.

This work developed a maritime unmanned aerial vehicle (Mar-UAV) system equipped with a high-resolution camera and an Automatic Identification System (AIS).

A multi-feature and multi-level matching algorithm using the spatiotemporal characteristics of aerial images and AIS information was proposed to detect and identify field vessels.

The Spree-Oder Waterway (SOW) is to become a digital testing ground for autonomous and automated inland navigation. From July, a project Autonom-SOW with partners from industry, federal government and science, said the Federal Association of Public Inland Ports (BÖB) on Friday. After initial investigations, construction is to begin in 2020. The test field at the SOW is one of four projects under the action plan “Digitalisation and Artificial Intelligence in Mobility” of the Federal Ministry of Transport.

The technology group Wärtsilä has successfully completed the installation and operational staff training for its Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) solution in the ports of Lisbon and Setúbal / Sesimbra in Portugal. The systems will increase the efficiency of these ports by reducing waiting time for vessels and allowing just-in-time pilotage. The state-of-the-art solution has been developed and supplied by Transas, a Wärtsilä company. The project was booked in July 2018 and completed in January 2019.
