Abstract: In this paper we explore the field of marine based computer vision and we introduce the evolvement of marine navigational lights recognition by developing an application which is able to recognize simulated vessel lighting systems and buoy marker detections. Through the use of a simulated onboard imaging device, the system will be able to capture a video feed which with the use of image processing techniques and template objects, will be capable of detecting and recognizing marine objects. Based on the recognition of the vessels and buoys, the application will suggest the required manoeuvre according to the highest ranked alert in order to avoid collisions with other vessels and to keep away from danger zones.
