Talk: Connecting the Threads of Transportation Safety and Traffic Operations
November 30, 2018
10:30 am-12:00 pm
Engineering Lab (E-Lab) II
Room: Kellogg Room
UMass Amherst Campus
This talk highlights a series of ongoing research activities within the UMass Transportation Center (UMTC) and the Arbella Insurance Human Performance Lab (HPL) that provide the essential link between transportation safety and operations. A primary focus of the talk is the human in loop nature of transportation systems, and how our understanding of human behavior directly impacts traffic safety (e.g., crashes), infrastructure design (e.g., complete streets) and traffic operations (e.g. left turns).
