MRI 2: Integrated Simulation and Safety

Grants and Contracts Details


This proposed Major Research Initiative (MRI) will focus on the use of both traffic simulation models and driving simulators to better understand causes of traffic crashes and test and assess selected countermeasures to enhance the safety of the public. One of the main efforts for this MRI is to develop crash prediction models based on simulated traffic conditions utilizing vehicular conflicts. The three areas proposed for this initiative include motorists’ crashes with other motorists, pedestrian and bicycle safety, and management of large-scale emergency situations
