A Prototype Rule-Based Expert System for Travel Demand Management
AbstractIn this research, a prototype rule-based expert system for travel demand management (TDM) in selecting suitable policy was designed and developed. This expert system suggests a process for travel demand management policy implementation, and offers guidance and advice on the selection of effective and appropriate policies. The system is supported with an object-oriented modeling in the knowledge abstraction and representation, and the interactions with the system are performed through a friendly graphical user interface (GUI). The prototype of the system was developed in shell expert system platform (KAPPA-PC). The outcomes obtained by the current prototype show that the used rule-based expert system architecture resulted in successful computerized intelligent decision support software that is easy to maintain, modify, and extend.
