Abstract

Traffic road users encounter numerous problems while travelling on roads. Expected problems can range from mildly disruptive to catastrophic events. When attempting to optimize a road network and alleviate problems, it is vital to select appropriate solutions. This paper defines prototype web-based expert knowledge system improvement that can be utilized to optimize the road network of developing countries. Deciding on appropriate controlling measures is a crucial task because expected problems range from mildly disruptive to catastrophic. Experts can provide solutions to these problems only by using their previous experience. The ultimate task in optimizing road network problems is to select appropriate solutions. Although experts can regulate and resolve these problems by means of their silent knowledge and experience, novice engineers cannot, but expertise transfer from experts to novices is challenging in the traffic road area. Therefore, this body of knowledge needs to be stored in a computer system. Identifying the causes of traffic problems and applying appropriate actions and solutions to these problems could help control or prevent them. Therefore, the web-based expert system for optimizing the road network of developing countries that was developed in this study, Expert System to Control Problems in Traffic (TRSys), is a method concept. Knowledge was provided in the form of rules and coded in software through PHP programming. Web pages supporting the user interface were produced using a framework made up of HTML, CSS and J-Query. TRSys was verified and validated with extensive testing methods. Unit and integrated testing were performed during coding to correct the code and ensure that each unit performs its function and that all units work together correctly and efficiently.
