The Real-Time Analytics of Transportation Data Lab’s research team develops technology to transform continual data streams into decision support and solutions.

InTrans researchers are using artificial intelligence and machine learning tools to manage, sort and analyze the traffic data collected by the Iowa Department of Transportation.

Keeping vehicles moving efficiently and safely

The Institute for Transportation is committed to keeping traffic moving, from urban freeways to rural roads. InTrans investigators analyze travel time and develop tools and measures to ensure efficient and safe mobility. They study resilience measures to extreme weather events, investigate autonomous vehicle systems, and analyze streams of traffic “big data” to support improved mobility decision-making. InTrans leads a partnership of transportation agencies in developing and deploying innovative road weather information systems. These efforts enhance traffic operations and improve resource allocations.
