In this paper, the authors present a fuzzy decision support system that can used in traffic control centers for providing a limited list of appropriate combinations of traffic control measures for a given traffic situation. The system is a component of a larger traffic decision support system (TDSS) that assists traffic control center operators in reducing non-recurrent congestion using a network-wide approach. A fuzzy case base is constructed using simulated scenarios. By using this case base and fuzzy interpolation, the decision support system generates a ranked list of combinations of traffic control measures which can then be examined by other modules of the TDSS that evaluate or predict their performance. The authors note that at a later stage, the fuzzy decision system will be complemented with an adaptive learning feature and with a set of fuzzy rules incorporating heuristic knowledge of experienced traffic operators.
