Traffic21 Institute

Traffic21 is a multi-disciplinary research institute of Carnegie Mellon University. Its goal is to design, test, deploy and evaluate information and communications technology based solutions to address the problems facing the transportation system of the Pittsburgh region and the nation.

The Pittsburgh region serves as a “learning lab,” deploying solutions that can be applied around the nation and the globe. Traffic21 leverages Carnegie Mellon’s leadership in relevant areas such as intelligent transportation systems, smart infrastructure, cyber security, human factors, artificial intelligence, data analytics, and connected and automated vehicles.
