The software Reseda is a system of assistance to the road accident analysis. It aims at enabling the investigators of INRETS-Salon-de-Provence to fill out computerized accident files, with an intelligent support. According to data seized on the accident, RESEDA exploits a knowledge base (described in XML format) in order to provide the user with suggestions useful for his task of accident analysis. These suggestions come from a knowledge base which was built through acquisition and modeling of knowledge of the INRETS experts. RESEDA also uses a base of generic scenarios (written in XML format) in order to suggest the most plausible generic scenarios, applicable for the reconstitution of the current accident analyzed by the user. RESEDA illustrates an application of knowledge engineering and exploits XML technology .
RESEDA was developed for an application of accidentology, but could be exploited for a memory composed of medical records, of incident forms or of project forms.
