Transportation Safety and Systems Engineering

transportation systems.

Integrating typical standalone simulator technologies — driving simulation, traffic and transportation simulation, network and infrastructure simulation, along with associated human factors and human behavior modeling — to provide a realstic and authentic driving experience to construct a simulation framework that can analyze transportation safety scenarios with greater fidelity and realism.
