Merging traffic management research into the real world

A partnership between UC Irvine and Caltrans


At our core we are a research facility with a demonstrated history of cutting-edge developments in traffic management and operations. Our team of researchers and technical staff are always looking for new problems to solve.


Our facilities offer a combination of a instrumented real-world traffic system connected to virtual systems supported by institutional partnerships allowing us to test and evaluate deployments on both technological and procedural grounds.


A one-stop shop for simulation, data analysis, testing, and evaluation providing a trajectory for moving ideas from the research journals into everyday practice.
