Artificial neural networks are one of the recently explored advanced technologies, which show promise in the area of transportation engineering. However, in contrast to the availability of a large number of successful application demonstrations, it is hard to find studies in the literature that provide systematic examinations of the state-of-the-art, the application domains, and the applicability of artificial neural networks to transportation problems. On the other hand, some unseen artificial neural network development has been motivated by transportation engineering objectives. Therefore, this study presents the development of a neural network paradigm for the purpose of daily trip flow forecasting.
