The University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) was established after an initial gift of $10 million to the University in 1965. Today, the UMTRI has a staff of approximately 130 working on projects that include accident data collection, traffic safety analysis, bioengineering, and public policy. The material on their site is divided into six primary areas, including "Transportation Expertise", "Data at UMTRI", and "Educational Opportunities". Visitors who venture over to the "Transportation Expertise" area can learn about their current (and past) areas of project design and execution. The projects are divided up thematically into areas such as crash avoidance and active safety and energy efficiency and emissions. Visitors can also learn about their extensive research capabilities and facilities in the "Facilities & Services" section. It's an interesting area as it provides insights into their work on vehicle dynamics and biomechanics.
