The Transportation Research Center
The Transportation Research Center was established in 1972 as the Institute for Research in Public Safety. Its purpose is to coordinate and facilitate SPEA’s research objectives in transportation and related areas, including transportation safety, risk analysis and security, regulatory policy, energy, and the environment. Work in automobile safety focuses on crash investigation, occupant injury, and how these are mitigated with both active and passive safety systems. The center uses a staff of professional researchers, faculty, and graduate students in performing projects for government agencies and the private sector.
