This paper is concerned with the application of automated planning in assisting the decision making and logistics in the area of Road Traffic Incidents. The characteristics of this area are that goals must be posed and plans must be output in real time. The domain is complex, with road topology, information distribution, traffic flows, driver behaviour, and highway management controls all potential factors. The representation and encoding of such domain knowledge, of possible actions and plans, and of potential tasks for the road traffic accident scenario is thus a crucial but difficult issue. The goal of this paper is to explore the potential of automated planning with hierarchical object-centred domain models in the application of Road Traffic Incident Management(RTIM).
