NC Transportation Center of Excellence in Advanced Technology Safety and Policy

Led by the UNC Highway Safety Research Center, the NC Transportation Center of Excellence in Advanced Technology Safety and Policy, or TSAP (“tee-sap”) for short, is a three-year research program focused on building knowledge on the role of Connected and Autonomous Vehicles (CAVs) in roadway safety and mobility and improving existing infrastructure to advance road safety, mobility, and accessibility.

TSAP, A Partner in Ensuring a Safe, Efficient Transportation Future for North Carolina

As the presence of CAVs and other new mobility modes increase in North Carolina, TSAP will play an important role in ensuring that North Carolina has a safe, efficient transportation future.

TSAP was one of three university research programs to receive a $1 million NC Department of Transportation grant in February 2020 through the Transportation Center of Excellence Initiative to study future transportation challenges in North Carolina. View complete NCDOT announcement here.
