TransInfo Research Facilities

George Mason University

The civil engineering department at George Mason University.

The Department of Civil, Environmental and Infrastructure Engineering at GMU is in the final phase of receiving a donation of 2012 Passat from Volkswagen Group of America. 

A lab for driving behavior and safety studies will be established based on this platform.  The department also houses several transportation-related software including ArcGIS, TransCAD, VISSIM, CORSIM, and HCS.  Moreover, the research team at GMU has recently collected some high-resolution longitudinal GPS data from several high-profile travel behavior studies, including one conducted after the I-35W Bridge Collapse in Minnesota, and a second focusing on the Inter-County Connector corridor in Maryland. GMU has also developed a data portal website to collect infrastructure maintenance information using crowdsourcing and social media.
