Safe-D: Safety through Disruption

Advance Safety

Seeking Partners to Advance Safety

The Safety through Disruption (Safe-D) National University Transportation Center (UTC), a new collaborative effort among the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, Texas Transportation Institute, and San Diego State University, is poised to dramatically enhance the safety of our nation’s transportation system through the implementation of disruptive technologies. Safe-D research will concentrate around four key theme areas:

To effectively usher in the next generation of transformative technologies in transportation, the Safe-D UTC believes that it is critical to partner with industry representatives, university faculty, and young students in all Center activities. Accordingly, the Safe-D UTC is seeking partners for targeted research and development activities, educational and workforce development programs, and technology transfer efforts aimed at commercialization and deployment.
