USDOT Region V Regional University Transportation Center

Ohio State University (Anchor Partner)

Ohio State University’s transportation engineering program focuses in core areas most closely associated with the transportation and infrastructure systems thrust. It includes the interdisciplinary areas of remote sensing and transportation, traffic surveillance, vehicle-infrastructure systems, urban transportation planning, and advanced transit technologies for planning and operations. Approximately 15% of civil engineering undergraduates major in transportation at OSU. The National Consortium for Remote Sensing in Transportation- Flows (NCRST-F) led by OSU improves transportation system efficiency by integrating remotely sensed traffic flow data obtained from airborne or satellite platforms. The interdisciplinary Traffic Monitoring Laboratory (TML) uses civil and electrical engineering faculty to improve traffic surveillance methods, extract new information from existing infrastructure, and develop intelligent transportation systems. OSU’s Campus Transit Lab (CTL) researches off-line transit planning and real-time transit operations. The Center for Mapping (CFM) addresses topics such as theoretical frameworks for GIS and spatial information, automated cartography, GIS representation, and multi-media visualization. The 35,000 sq. ft. Center for Automotive Research (CAR) emphasizes systems engineering in advanced experimental facilities that include engine and vehicle dynamometers and intelligent and autonomous vehicle laboratories. The Center for Urban and Regional Analysis (CURA) contributes analysis expertise at the city, state, regional, national, and international scales. OSU researchers have access to the Transportation Research Center, Inc. (TRC Inc.), an independent automotive proving ground for comprehensive research, development and testing services.
