transportation program

The George Washington University (GW) Transportation Program (TP) trains students and conducts fundamental and applied research in multiple areas. These areas include: 1) driver and pedestrian detection and modeling, 2) traffic flow theory, 3) transportation safety, 4) network flow problems (social and transportation networks), 5) intelligent transportation systems (including connected and autonomous systems with V2V and V2I communications), and 6) evacuation modeling and emergency management. 

Additional GWTP Research and training in robotics, human/machine interface, and social media is performed in collaboration with partnering national and international laboratories/institutions, different GW schools, and various departments at the GW School of Engineering and Applied Science (SEAS). The program is housed at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE).
