How do I get data from AIS?

To receive all AIS transmissions a receiver must monitor both channels simultaneously, so the receiver must in effect be two receivers in one box. If two separate and different transmissions arrive at the receiver at the same time but on different channels both transmissions will be received and output by the receiver.

What are the 3 dynamic information of an AIS?

AIS transmits, automatically and at set intervals, dynamic information relating to the ship’s course, speed and heading; static information related to the ship’s name, length, breadth; and voyage-related details such as cargo information and navigational status (e.g. underway or at anchor).

Which of the following data is transmitted by the AIS as voyage information?

AIS broadcasts voyage related information (including ship location, speed, course, heading, rate of turn, destination and estimated arrival time) as well as static information (including ship name, ship MMSI ID, message ID, ship type, ship size).

What is in an AIS sentence?

Every 6 bits of AIS data has to be encoded into one 8 bit ASCII character, prior to transmission. One NMEA AIS sentence can only contain a maximum of 306 bits. If an AIS message is longer than 306 bits, each AIS message must be split into “multi-part” NMEA sentences.

What is AIS source?

An automatic Identification System (AIS) is an automated tracking system that displays other vessels in the vicinity. It is a broadcast transponder system that operates in the VHF mobile maritime band. Your own ship also shows on the screens of other vessels in the vicinity, provided your vessel is fitted with AIS.

Is AIS and MMSI the same?

The AIS uses the same MMSI number assigned to the vessel for GMDSS purposes, enabling coordinated communication. The system is backwards compatible with DSC, allowing shore-based GMDSS systems to affordably identify and track marine traffic equipped with AIS transponders.

What is static and dynamic data of AIS?

AIS is simple in concept, using the VHF radio to transmit and receive dynamic data – which is taken from the global navigation system (for example GPS or Glonass) giving the vessels course, speed and position; and static data – (for example the vessel’s MMSI number), which is inputted at installation.

What is dynamic data of AIS?

Dynamic Data, such as position, course, speed, heading, and rate of turn is autonomously acquired from external or internal sensors including GPS, speed log, heading device or gyro. Dynamic Data is continuously broadcast every few seconds.

What is type of AIS data?

AIS data is binary code that can be extracted using ITU M. 1371-2 standard. Standard NMEA uses two sentences AIVDM (Accepted Data from other vessels) and AIVDO (ship own information). In this paper use AIVDM. The receiver data get data in the ASCII type using NMEA 0183.

What is the static data of AIS?

Static Data is information that must be programmed into the AIS at installation and is verified periodically.

Which protocol is used in AIS?

SOTDMA protocol
Designed to prevent marine collisions, AIS is a marine band data network based on a self-organizing TDMA access protocol. The SOTDMA protocol poses significant hurdles for electronic designers.
