USE OF EXPERT SYSTEMS FOR ROADWAY WEATHER MAINTENANCE DECISIONS

The authors developed expert systems for two specific tasks relating to roadway weather decision making. The first is a system for forecasting frost formation on bridges and roadways in central Iowa, and the second is a system for forecasting fog on US Highway 30 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, due to plumes emitted by cooling towers at a corn-sweeteners production plant adjacent to the roadway. From these experiences the authors have concluded that expert systems can be useful in roadway weather maintenance decisions. These experiences also have allowed the authors to consider the more general issue of decision making with regard to the use of weather information.
