Information Unfitness of AIS

Open access


Commonly used AIS devices on the ships covered by SOLAS Convention creates ideas of the use of AIS data in the situation of the risk of collision. AIS position report is a source of supplementary information derived from error leveraged radar measurement. However, many of users has opinions with regard to inconsistent AIS dynamic data in the process of decision-making by the officer of the watch. Taking into consideration the recordings of the studies and technical specification of AIS, the results of inconsistent data has been analysed in the context of collision avoidance
