Virginia Tech Transportation Institute creates the Future of Transportation Safety

article imageIn the early 1990s, Tom Dingus had an idea that bridged the gap between research and real-world driving. At the time, most transportation safety research was conducted in a simulator, a significantly controlled test track environment, or through analysis of crash databases. Dingus strived to step outside of the controlled environment box and into a natural transportation environment - the open road.
