This paper employs artificial neural network (ANN) to develop an accident appraisal expert system. Two ANN models-- party-based and case-based-- with different hidden neurons are trained and validated by k-fold (k=3) cross validation method. A total of 537 two-car crash accidents (1074 parties involved) are randomly and equally divided into three subsets. For the comparison, a discrimination analysis (DA) model is also calibrated. The results show that the ANN model can achieve a high… CONTINUE READING
