Prediction of Ship Resonant Rolling - Related Dangerous Zones with Regard to the Equivalent Metacentric Height Governing Natural Frequency of RollPublication
Potentially dangerous zones corresponding to dynamical stability phenomena, possibly encountered by ships sailing in rough sea, are estimated nowadays with the use of the method recommended by IMO in the guidance coded MSC.1/Circ.1228.

Towards the Development of a Risk Model for Unmanned Vessels Design and OperationsPublication
Towards the Development of a Risk Model for Unmanned Vessels Design and OperationsPublication
An unmanned merchant vessel seems to be escaping from the stage of idea exploration. Once the concept proofs its safety, it may become a part of maritime reality. Although the safety aspect of such a ship has been addressed by a handful of scholars, the problem remains open. This is mainly due to lack of knowledge regarding actual operational circumstances and design of unmanned ships, which are yet to be developed. In the...
A Simulative Comparison of Ship Domains and Their Polygonal ApproximationsPublication
The paper investigates the impact of a precise ship domain shape on the size of collision avoidance manoeuvres.

The best of all considered approximations is determined in the course of...
Algorithms for Ship Movement Prediction for Location Data CompressionPublication
Due to safety reasons, the movement of ships on the sea, especially near the coast should be tracked, recorded and stored. However, the amount of vessels which trajectories should be tracked by authorized institutions, often in real time, is usually huge. What is more, many sources of vessels position data (radars, AIS) produces thousands of records describing route of each tracked object, but lots of that records are correlated...
