UMTRI experts have access to petabytes of efficient and high-quality naturalistic data sets, crash data for the U.S. and several states, as well as the largest set of connected vehicle data in the world. This data will better inform manufacturers, and policy makers in their pursuit of a national connected vehicle network and AV deployment.
The Center for the Management of Information for Safe and Sustainable Transportation (CMISST) Group gathers, combines, and analyzes all types of transportation datasets to answer pressing questions in transportation safety and efficiency.
CMISST has one of the largest, most efficient and high-quality naturalistic sets of data around. In fact, they have the largest set of connected vehicle data in the world. Combined with our state-of-the-art data management systems and research expertise, CMISST experts are leading the way to a better understanding of factors that impact transportation safety and mobility, and identify the most effective crash and injury countermeasures.
