In this paper we investigate the modification of feasibility study on Intelligent Evaluation Marine Traffic Congestion Degree for Restricted Water Area which has now become one of the numerous challenging factors to improve the safety of navigation. However, the observation of marine traffic using Fuzzy Expert with the aid of AIS acquired knowledge from the collected data enable the congestion degree to be visualize and possible to estimate Restricted Water Area base on traffic congestion degree with main flow velocity. The formation, aggregation, and decomposition of rules explained fuzzy mathematical tools and the calculus of IF-THEN rules provides a most useful paradigm for the automation and implementation of an extensive body of human knowledge. Therefore, the clarification includes a discussion of fuzzification and defuzzification strategies, the definition of fuzzy implication and an analysis of fuzzy reasoning mechanism. Now IMO is trying to standardize criterion of Universal AIS. As you know AIS is now studied and has been studied in many advanced country as a tools to exchange information in both ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore in congested waterways. The intention of standardization is to improve safety of VTS management and to support effective navigation of ships.
