  • A knowledge based vehicle scheduler for emergency relief management

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):12/1 - 12/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (200 KB)

    The need to schedule vehicle deliveries of relief items to distribution centres occurs in almost every relief operation (for example, food emergencies in developing countries). This task is usually complicated by a mix of different vehicle types, with different capacities and road worthiness. There will usually be a wide range of commodities, of different bulk. A few loads may be made up of two or... View full abstract»

  • User-modelling and route-finding with SMART, the Scottish motorways advisory route tutor

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):4/1 - 4/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (180 KB)

    SMART is a tutorial system that attempts to be sensitive to each individual user's personal knowledge and previous experience of the system and the domain, the current domain being route-finding on the motorway network of Central Scotland. The user specifies the origin and destination of the desired journey, and then commences to type a sequence of motorways indicating his proposed route. SMART mo... View full abstract»

  • Understanding road accidents-a rule induction approach

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):9/1 - 9/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (212 KB)

    Concerns the application of expert systems to road accident investigation work. The paper describes an experiment to investigate whether effective rules for distinguishing between junction control types can be established and more generally to investigate the usefulness of rule induction in the accident investigation field. This was done by applying each of two rule induction packages to a data se... View full abstract»

  • Towards on-vehicle real-time knowledge based systems

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):3/1 - 3/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (240 KB)

    Advanced applications for vehicle crew support or for autonomous operation require compact and inexpensive knowledge based systems (KBS) to be integrated with other vehicle systems and to operate in real time. The paper highlights some of the important issues affecting progress towards the use of real-time KBS in road vehicles. A short discussion of the potential advantages and applications is fol...

  • Scheduling large fleets of vehicles: a rule based expert system approach

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):11/1 - 11/2
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (104 KB)

    Concerns the application of knowledge based systems to the scheduling of large fleets of vehicles. A prototype scheduling system for an authentic size of problem domain was implemented, using a high end expert system development environment (Automated Reasoning Tool). The system uses data directed techniques to produce a schedule, on industry standard hardware, in a commercially acceptable executi... View full abstract»

  • A trip generation database for large retail stores and its development into an expert system

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):2/1 - 2/7
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (368 KB)

    The rapidly expanding retail industry, centered in large multistore developments, creates a new problem for the traffic engineer. These developments attract a large amount of traffic which often causes problems on the surrounding road networks, besides requiring parking space. Currently used methods of estimating the amount of traffic generated by such a development, based on location and probable... View full abstract»

  • Knowledge-based techniques in traffic control systems

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):6/1 - 6/4
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (248 KB)

    Knowledge-based system (KBS) technology is considered as a general framework within which systems and technologies currently used in traffic monitoring and control tasks could be potentially implemented, to improve the functionality of single systems and to achieve broader integration among different (sub-)systems. Many technical problems surrounding KBS technology such as the computational effici... View full abstract»

  • The location of roadside objects: an expert system to assess the safety aspects

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):10/1 - 10/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (296 KB)

    The paper concerns the development of an expert system to assist a traffic or highway engineer when making decisions about the location of roadside objects (lighting columns, signposts etc.). It illustrates how system safety techniques can be applied to a transportation safety problem. Fault tree analysis is used to represent the process behind single vehicle accidents. A simple fault tree is then... View full abstract»

  • The fundamental issues of an expert system for urban traffic control

    Publication Year: 1988, Page(s):7/1 - 7/6
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (364 KB)

    The variety of methods available to the engineer to control traffic movements in a town or city, includes traffic signal control, which can be implemented as isolated junctions, or in coordinated groups, or over the entire network, using either vehicle actuated, fixed-time or demand responsive control. It is the `experts' who, knowing the capabilities and the limitations of the different systems a... View full abstract»
