Researchers in this Federal Highway Administration-designated center headquartered at the RELLIS Campus use state-of-the-art analytical tools to accurately model crash tests on dedicated high-speed computers. These techniques enable researchers to design better, most cost-effective safety hardware at a lower cost to research sponsors by predicting how vehicles and safety devices will perform in collisions. 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.
The TTI Center for Transportation Safety is home to a Realtime Technologies, Inc. (RTI) driving simulator that provides measurements of drivers’ responses to roadway situations, in-vehicle technologies, and driving-related tasks. RTI’s SimCreator® and SimVista® software tools provide a library of different roadway cross-sections and interchanges, as well as a variety of roadway objects, buildings, and ambient traffic. […]
Fovio Eye Tracking System TTI uses the Fovio eye tracking and driver monitoring system for on-road and closed-course studies. This low-profile enclosed system mounts inconspicuously on the dashboard. It offers fast calibration for research subjects and improved eye tracking for nighttime studies. FaceLAB® Eye Tracking System FaceLAB® employs two dashboard cameras and an infrared emitter […]
Function The Texas A&M Transportation Institute’s (TTI’s) instrumented vehicles allow researchers to conduct driver behavior research in test track and on-road environments. The vehicles are equipped with vehicle acquisition data systems and other portable systems that allow TTI research staff to evaluate driver response and performance to a variety of on-road devices and in-vehicle technologies. […]
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 […]
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. […]
