Microcomputer Expert Systems in Transportation Engineering

by Stephen G. Ritchie, Univ of California, Irvine, CA, USA,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Microcomputer Applications in Transportation II


This paper reviews microcomputer-based expert systems in transportation engineering. Expert systems have great potential for solving ill-structured problems and for becoming useful tools for practicing transportation engineers. First, a brief overview of expert systems is provided, including basic characteristics, knowledge representation methods, the steps in building an expert system and the evolutionary levels of system development. A number of individual systems are then reviewed using a classification framework involving both level of development and dominant functional application in transportation engineering.
