Advanced Traveler Information System (ATIS) has attracted world-wide interest as a promising program to improve efficiency of road transportation systems. An optimal route guidance is an important feature of ATIS. Information regarding the level of congestion in a given roadway system is vital for deriving an optimal route guidance strategy. Characterization of level of congestion in a given roadway system requires integration of localized sensor information that can be accomplished by mapping the set of localized information into a higher dimensional space. The diagnosis of integrated information requires partitioning of the higher dimensional space into multiple regions. This paper describes a supervised learning approach, based on potential functions, to partition the higher dimensional space into regions that represent pre-determined levels of congestion in a given portion of a road network or freeway segment.
