CORRIDOR ANALYSIS FOR RECONSTRUCTION ACTIVITIES, TRAFFIC CONTROL STRATEGIES, AND INCIDENT MANAGEMENT TECHNIQUES. LITERATURE REVIEW. FINAL REPORT

This study is to develop a microcomputer knowledge-based Expert System for assisting urban freeway corridor incident management. Study activities include: literature review, conceptual design, prototype system development, and program documentation. Efforts were made to summarize the information and decision-making processes involved in implementing freeway incident management strategies. The study has investigated the Expert Systems Design for representing incident management techniques. The study summarized the state-of-the-art expert system development, conceptual design, and system user interface design. A unified development process has been identified for expert knowledge representation, implementation procedures, and translation system using conventional languages. This report summarizes the design considerations, concept design, program implementation, and system operations of microcomputer-based Expert Systems development in the Transportation Engineering Field.
