Abstract

The problem of information exchange and communication in marine navigation is presented. The authors propose a sub-ontology for automatic intership communication as a supplement to the ontology of navigational information. The application of the sub-ontology enables the improvement of information exchange and co-operation between navigators steering the ships. The automation allows to reduce the impact of human errors resulting from the failure to effiectively communicate and coordinate actions. The human factor is often to blame for marine accidents. Applications in the ship communication and co-operation system are shown.
