The Vessel route pattern extraction and anomaly detection from AIS data

Boztepe, Gözde
The need for a variety of auxiliary analytical tools to enhance marine safety and marine status awareness has been expressed by various platforms. There are lots of data sources breaking out while the ship is on cruising. Automatic Identification System (AIS) device that is widely used in vessels, is one of them. It broadcasts information such as type of ship, identity number, state, destination, estimated time of arrival (ETA), location, speed, direction, cargo. In this study, to aid operators while sailing, the trajectory extraction and anomaly detection tool have been developed. The AIS messages are used to improve a system for safe navigation. Three different approaches are applied for the prediction of the vessel trajectories. Later, movements that have not matched the route patterns and unusual stop anomalies have been examined.


Trajectory pattern extraction and anomaly detection for maritime vessels
Karatas, Gozde Boztepe; Karagöz, Pınar; Ayran, Orhan (2021-12-01)
Trajectory analysis and extraction of trajectory patterns are crucial to enhance marine safety and marine status awareness. The major data source for such analysis is Automatic Identification System (AIS), which publishes data related to movement of the ship while cruising. AIS broadcasts information including type of ship, identity number, state, destination, estimated time of arrival (ETA), location, speed, direction, and cargo. In this paper, we focus on extracting a variety of trajectory patterns for ma...
Three dimensional target tracking with underwater acoustic sensor networks
İşbitiren, Gökhan; Akan, Özgür Barış; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2009)
Sonar is the traditional method of underwater target detection and tracking. However, using traditional sonar arrays may be difficult and impractical in some mission-critical scenarios as they require a ship or a submersible to be mounted on or towed by. Alternatively, Underwater Acoustic Sensor Networks (UW-ASN) offer a promising solution approach. In this thesis, a target tracking algorithm for UW-ASN, Three-Dimensional Underwater Target Tracking (3DUT) is presented. The objective of 3DUT is to collaborat...
Exploring the IMO’S e-navigation and EU’S e-maritime concepts and developing strategies to implement maritime its in Turkey
Pense, Caner.; Güneş, Şule; Department of Earth System Science (2019)
International Maritime Organization’s (IMO) e-Navigation concept aims to utilize advanced communication and decision support technologies to increase the overall safety of navigation and prevent maritime accidents while reducing ship emissions, operational costs and workload on the maritime sector; globally. The e-Maritime concept is an e-Navigation vision that is adopted by the European Union (EU) which shares the same aims with the IMO’s e-Navigation concept. However, the EU e-Maritime concept also aims t...
A simulation study of ad hoc networking of UAVs with opportunistic resource utilization networks
Lilien, Leszek T.; BEN OTHMANE, Lotfi; Angın, Pelin; DECARLO, Andrew; Salih, Raed M.; BHARGAVA, Bharat (Elsevier BV, 2014-02-01)
Specialized ad hoc networks of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have been playing increasingly important roles in applications for homeland defense and security. Common resource virtualization techniques are mainly designed for stable networks; they fall short in providing optimal performance in more dynamic networks such as mobile ad hoc networks (MANETs)-due to their highly dynamic and unstable nature. We propose application of Opportunistic Resource Utilization Networks (Oppnets), a novel type of MANETs, ...
Deep Distance Metric Learning For Maritime Vessel Identification
Gundogdu, Erhan; Solmaz, Berkan; Koç, Aykut; Yucesoy, Veysel; Alatan, Abdullah Aydın (2017-05-18)
This paper addresses the problem of maritime vessel identification by exploiting the state-of-the-art techniques of distance metric learning and deep convolutional neural networks since vessels are the key constituents of marine surveillance. In order to increase the performance of visual vessel identification, we propose a joint learning framework which considers a classification and a distance metric learning cost function. The proposed method utilizes the quadruplet samples from a diverse image dataset t...
