Abstract: For safe navigation of ship at sea, it is essential to provide navigation intention message to target ship for collision avoidance. Therefore it must be considered for the MASS to transmit navigation intention message to the target ship after making a decision of method for collision avoidance in the encountering situation. This paper presents an algorithm of navigation intention message transmission through the MASS, which is able to evaluate the risk of collision and apply international regulations for collision avoidance. The Fuzzy inference system is used to assess the risk of collision. In case that the risk of collision exceeds the pre-designated threshold, the navigation intention message is transmitted from the MASS to the target ship. Before the collision situation occurs, the target ship is possible to be aware of the navigation intention from the MASS. Proposed the algorithm contributes to providing systematic information exchange between the MASS and the target ship.
