Seeing is believing – Simulation and other Transportation Research at the Alabama Transportation Institute

Dr. Steven Jones
Alabama Transportation Institute
The University of Alabama
The talk will begin with a general introduction to the Alabama Transportation Institute (ATI) and its research portfolio. The introduction will provide a historical context for the establishment of ATI and provide an overview of the broad range of human-centered transportation research led and/or facilitated by ATI. The presentation of ATI research will then focus on the role of simulation in general and eventually touch on recent SUMO-related work. Additionally, the talk will highlight the ATI track record of, and intentions to expand, international collaborations. Ultimately, the talk will provide an understanding of ATI simulation-related and other research priorities going forward as well as provide a case for potential future collaborations.
