University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute
The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute is dedicated to interdisciplinary research that will ultimately increase driving safety and further transportation systems knowledge. UMTRI covers a variety of disciplines such as for example connected-vehicle research and testing, sustainable mobility systems, transportation data fusion and analysis, and the efficient movement of heavy freight. UMTRI has carried out research projects in broad areas involving accident data collection and traffic safety analysis, bioengineering, human factors, mechanical engineering, psychology, economics, and public policy. Some of UMTRI’s key initiatives embody its commitment to safe and sustainable transportation:
• Center for the Management of Information for Safe and Sustainable Transportation (CMISST)
• Michigan Mobility Transformation Center (MTC)
• Sustainable Mobility & Accessibility Research & Transformation (SMART)
• Sustainable Worldwide Transportation (SWT)
• Connected Vehicle Safety Pilot Model Deployment
