Drivers, start your monitors: Inside the virtual world of the ZouSim Lab
Carlos Sun and his team have developed innovative vehicle technology becoming leaders in transportation.
Civil Engineering team develops realistic artificial data set for road safety studies
A Mizzou Engineering team is hoping artificial intelligence (AI) can be leveraged to prevent vehicle crashes in the future. To that end, they’ve developed realistic artificial data sets (RAD) that can be used to train machines to predict the factors that cause wrecks. These data sets are now available through the U.S. Department of Transportation. The three-year $1.1M project was supported by the US DOT’s Exploratory Advance Research Program.
Murr twins continue family legacy through civil engineering program
For Blake and Brady Murr, civil engineering is more than a degree. It’s an opportunity to improve communities. And it’s a legacy worth preserving.
Civil Engineers assessing effectiveness of J-turn intersections in Missouri
A Mizzou Engineering team has been tasked with assessing the effectiveness of J-turn intersection designs across Missouri’s state highway system.
Engineering team develops autonomous alarm system for work zone vehicles
A Mizzou Engineering team has developed an innovative alert system that tells drivers when they’re in danger of colliding with a mobile work zone vehicle.
Engineers assess self-driving vehicles to reduce mobile work zone injuries
Using a self-driving truck to follow a manned vehicle has the potential to reduce worker injuries in mobile work zones, a Mizzou Engineering team has concluded. Henry Brown, a research engineer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, is presenting the findings to the Missouri Department of Transportation (MoDOT).
Mizzou Engineers recognized at Transportation Research Board meeting
Several faculty from Mizzou’s civil and environment engineering department were recognized and presented at the Transportation Research Board (TRB)’s 102nd Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. last week.
Engineering team earns research award for study of autonomous truck platoons
Civil engineering Professor Carlos Sun and his team have received a prestigious award from the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) for their studies of autonomous truck platoons. Sun will receive the AASHTO High Value Research Award in the Safety, Security and Emergencies Supplemental Category at the Transportation Research Board’s (TRB) annual meeting in January.
ZouSim uses simulated environment to study driver behavior
Erika Zhou is “driving” 50 in a 60-mile-per-hour zone. When she approaches road work, her speed drops to about 15 below the posted limit. A few days later, Stuart…
