TTI, partnering with the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station and operating under contract to Texas A&M University, is helping develop a smarter campus transportation ecosystem at Texas A&M, increasing safety, mobility, throughput, and efficiency across all modes of transportation in the campus environment. The primary goal of this initiative is to encourage anyone who has […]
Connected transportation is a major evolution in how vehicles and infrastructure will interact in the future, affecting every facet of transportation safety and mobility. Vehicles and the infrastructure will be able to talk to each other and communicate their real-time conditions. The lifespan of this research is expected to last more than two decades as […]
TTI has developed an augmented-reality environment where real entities (vehicles and traffic signal operation) are combined with simulated traffic and displayed on a screen. The first-of-its-kind approach — called CONnected Vehicle Assessment Simulation (CONVAS) — marries the cost-effectiveness of computer simulation with actual roadway operations to produce an efficient yet dependable evaluation mechanism for the […]
TTI is deploying CV technology along the I-35 corridor to improve safety and mobility through work zones by providing in-vehicle devices to freight companies to receive work zone infrastructure data on lane closure location, capacity reduction, queue lengths and delay to assist in pre-trip and en-route planning for logistics.
More than… 50 years of safety research. 4,000 full-scale crash tests. 40 tons of truck brought to a screeching halt. Research performed at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute’s Proving Ground has saved lives for more than 50 years. The TTI Proving Grounds has long been a place where TTI has conducted world-class research, technology development […]
A state-of-the-art traffic signal has been installed at the Texas A&M University System RELLIS Campus. The Smart Intersection further advances research in traffic signal control, detection technology, and connected vehicle infrastructure. This Smart Intersection was developed with contributions from Econolite, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), and the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI). Econolite donated […]
Cities and regions across Texas are partnering with TTI, The University of Texas (UT) at Austin’s Center for Transportation Research (CTR), and the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in San Antonio in the Texas Automated Vehicle Proving Ground Partnership. The statewide partnership is putting Texas on the path to becoming the nation’s first “Smart State,” which […]
TTI developed a concept of operations plan for designing, testing, piloting, demonstrating and deploying CAV technology hardware and applications to reduce and eliminate crashes involving transit, bicyclists and pedestrians. A pilot test was also conducted of the Mobileye Shield + collision avoidance system on a Texas A&M University bus in Phase I of the project. […]
