  abstract =     "Considered is the problem of reliably predicting
                 motorway journey times for the purpose of providing
                 accurate information to drivers. This proof of concept
                 experiment investigates: (a) the practicalities of
                 using a Genetic Programming (GP) method to
                 model/forecast motorway journey times; and (b)
                 different ways of obtaining a journey time predictor.
                 Predictions are compared with known times and are also
                 judged against a collection of naive prediction
                 formulae. A journey time formula discovered by GP is
                 analysed to determine its structure, demonstrating that
                 GP can indeed discover compact formulae for different
                 traffic situations and associated insights. GP's
                 felxibility allows it to self-determine the required
                 level of modelling complexity.",
