The increase of maritime traffic in the past few years have posed concerns about the safety of using this transport facility in the future. Recent accident statistics show that the age of boats, legislation and traffic flow control are nowadays insufficient to ensure the security of boats, crew, coasts and ecological system. Maritime authorities have set up vessel traffic systems (VTS), which follows ship navigation specifically in high density areas. We present a new computing approach to simulate and improve the security of maritime traffic. Based on agent technology and distributed systems this solution models the ship behaviours and adds to vessel traffic systems the capability of comparing original and simulated ship tracks
