Projects

TSAP will conduct five research projects with two key themes:

  • Using and improving existing infrastructure to advance safety and mobility and help North Carolina communities, particularly vulnerable road users
  • Using connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) to advance mobility, with a focus on economic impact and data

These projects will engage NCDOT and other stakeholders and produce results that will be strategically focused, implementable, and accessible to transportation decision-makers. Each of these projects also includes a workforce development component by exposing students to advanced technologies and opportunities to engage with stakeholders. The partner universities will integrate workforce development efforts with pre-existing programs. Ultimately, these collective efforts will produce enduring partnership and structured collaboration opportunities that will benefit the state for many years beyond the Center of Excellence program.
