Welcome

The Center for Road Safety (CRS), affiliated with the School of Civil Engineering at Purdue University, conducts research and develops engineering tools in the area of road safety, including driver and and roadway-related characteristics:

We provide services to a wide variety of local, state, and federal agencies, including counties, cities, the Indiana Department of Transportation, the Indiana Department of Homeland Security, the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, the Federal Highway Administration, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and the Federal Motor Carriers Association.

CRS has extensive experience with storing and processing massive amount of data and meeting strict security requirements and uses a vast assortment of software to take on the most intensive data processing and numeric computational tasks. Its affiliation with the Purdue University School of Civil Engineering affords CRS full access to the hardware and software resources available through the extensive and sophisticated Purdue Engineering Computing Network (ECN).

 

 

Highlights

The Federal Highway Administration web site recently posted an article featuring CRS and our ongoing research projects. The article can be seen here.

AASHTO publication Research Making Strides for Highway Safety listed CRS project "Analysis and Methods of Improvement of Safety at High-Speed Rural Intersections" on page 3. 

CRS project  Improving Safety in High-Speed Work Zones: A Super 70 Study was mentioned in the NCHRP_2011 High Value Research newsletter in the article titled: Safer Highways and Work Zones.

CRS hosted the 3rd International Conference on Road Safety and Simulation on September 14-16, 2011. The conference papers can be found here.
