Design of an Automatic Collision Avoidance System for Ships Based on Wireless Sensor Network

Haohao Yuan


The system designed is a ship collision avoidance system based on consistent use of satellite positioning technology, spread spectrum communication technology and a wireless sensor network. The system design includes: an information collecting terminal, a data processing terminal and a mobile data terminal as the three main parts. CC2530 is selected as the master chip for the information collecting terminal, and the GPS module with NEO-6M UBLOX satellite positioning function is used to obtain the latitude, longitude, heading and other information. The AS62-T30 wireless communication module is used to realize the data interaction between ships, and a 0.96-inch OLED display module is used to show the current location of the ship, thus realizing the GPS positioning data receiving, data analysis, information display, data integration and transmission, and other functions. In terms of the software in the data processing terminal, QT5 is selected as the development environment, and QtSql as the database to process and store the data packet sent by the information collecting terminal. The system has many functions including real-time data analysis and alarm, real-time location annotation, track query, route planning and weather forecasting, etc.
