This study aims to investigate the traffic information forecasting based on the data mining technology. As well known, useful knowledge in traffic management system often hides in a large amount of traffic data. Generally, prior data pattern labels have been used to train the Artificial Neural Network (ANN) to identify the traffic conditions in the traffic information forecasting. The performance of the ANN models suffers from the prior information of the experts. To relieve this impact in the traffic information forecasting, a new ANN model is proposed based on the data mining technology in this study. The Self-Organized Feature Map (SOFM) is firstly employed to cluster the traffic data through an unsupervised learning and provide the labels for these data. Then the labeled data were used to train the GA-Chaos optimized RBF neural network. Herein, the GA-Chaos algorithm is used to train the RBF parameters. Experimental tests use practical data sets from the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) were implemented to validate the performance of the proposed ANN model. The analyses results demonstrate that the proposed method can extract the potential patterns hidden in the traffic data and can accurately predict the future traffic state. The prediction accuracy is beyond 95%. Hence, the new data mining model can provide practical application for traffic information forecasting in the ITS system.
