Transportation Research Group, University of Southampton
The Transportation Research Group (TRG) is a multi-disciplinary group within the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment (FEE) at the University of Southampton. The research emphasis in the Group is on the appraisal and evaluation of a wide range of transport systems and services covering road, rail and non-motorised modes of transport, including modal comparisons. Other major activities relate to all aspects of the development, application and understanding of the impacts of a wide range of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), with fundamental research in the areas of Traffic Management, Safety, the Environment/Sustainability, Public Transport and Freight and Goods movement. In recent years, TRG has developed expertise in impact evaluation, leading this activity in the CIVITAS GUARD and POINTER projects for the EC and iConnect project for EPSRC. The Group works closely with external research, government and industrial bodies. TRG has undertaken some 40 collaborative projects sponsored by the European Commission since 1990.
TRG is cluster support partner for cluster 3: advanced network and traffic management to support traveler information - as well as leader of the work package 2: transferability analysis and guidelines for implementers.
