In 1915, the first stop sign was installed in Detroit, Michigan, but until now, there was still no one coordinated body of knowledge which would dictate design and analysis requirements. The advent of computer technology and the development of expert systems has provided an excellent opportunity for the synthesis of design methodologies, standards and experience. It is the intent of this paper to describe the development and implementation of stop-controlled intersection analysis to an expert system, and then to assess the resultant benefits and drawbacks.
