Intelligent Transportation Systems

UMTRI researchers develop and test vehicle-based technologies for avoiding run-off-the-road crashes in passenger vehicles. They also study automotive collision avoidance, in-vehicle driver-assistance and safety systems, and integrated technologies between the vehicle and the infrastructure.
