Identifying differences in safe roads and crash prone roads using clustering data mining
Emerson, Daniel, Nayak, Richi, & Weligamage, Justin (2011) Identifying differences in safe roads and crash prone roads using clustering data mining. In Engineering Asset Management 2011: Proceedings of the Sixth Annual World Congress on Engineering Asset Management [Lecture Notes in Mechanical Engineering], Duke Energy Center, Cincinatti, Ohio.
Road asset managers are overwhelmed with a high volume of raw data which they need to process and utilise in supporting their decision making. This paper presents a method that processes road-crash data of a whole road network and exposes hidden value inherent in the data by deploying the clustering data mining method. The goal of the method is to partition the road network into a set of groups (classes) based on common data and characterise the class crash types to produce a crash profiles for each cluster. By comparing similar road classes with differing crash types and rates, insight can be gained into these differences that are caused by the particular characteristics of their roads. These differences can be used as evidence in knowledge development and decision support.
