Researchers at the Center for Automotive Research (CAR) possess expertise in advanced vehicle safety research and development. This led them to be awarded the Crash Imminent Safety University Transportation Center by the U.S. Department of Transportation improve the ways humans interact with intelligent, autonomous and semiautonomous vehicles. With collaborations that span the automotive industry, Center for Intelligent Transportation Research engineers design superior active safety and driver assistance systems, and strive to improve driver experiences in areas such as lane departure, automated parking, and pedestrian detection, to name a few.

Additionally, in their partnership with Ohio State’s Injury Biomechanics Research Center, researchers at CAR investigate the types of risk associated with automotive situations. With an exceptional knowledge of how mechanical and behavioral factors contribute to human injury, researchers are able to develop solutions that prevent these risks from becoming reality.
