Transportation Research Groups
- The Complex Systems Research Laboratory (CSRL) designs system modeling, analysis, and visualization theory and tools to assist in the design and operation of safer systems with greater capability.
- CarTel is a distributed, mobile sensor network and telematics system. Applications built on top of this system can collect, analyze, and deliver data from sensors on automobiles and smartphones and provide interesting services to users regarding their commutes. Principal Investigators/Director: Hari Balakrishnan, Sam Madden, Daniela Rus
