This paper starts from the "Ice Silk Road"--the characteristics of the ship on the Arctic route, combined with the special environment of the channel, using the traffic flow theory and the following theory to establish a car-following distance model suitable for the Arctic route. The state of navigation of the ship is analyzed; from the macroscopic calculation of the pitch of the heel, the ship's heeling distance and the speed of the icebreaker are obtained, thus improving the navigation safety of the Arctic route.
