As a University Transportation Research Center, it is part of C2SMART’s core values to ensure that we are building a diverse and well-prepared workforce of tomorrow. The SLH was launched as a way to give students the practical, hands-on experience they needed to be competitive upon graduation while simultaneously providing opportunities for researchers to improve their teaching skills.
The past year brought C2SMART more growth, progress, and partnership-building with communities and agencies. We initiated 11 new projects under our USDOT-funded research program ranging from artificial intelligence applications to transportation systems, equitable allocation of resources and technology, and digital twin modeling of infrastructure to improve resiliency of transportation systems. Ongoing projects produced significant contributions to the transportation field with direct implementations alongside industry and agency partners, and publications in some of the top journals and high-impact conferences in the field.
