ATI has had the opportunity to serve the state through several interdisciplinary projects in transportation research. The projects below are just a snapshot of our capabilities and each has a unique opportunity for enhancing research and our statewide infrastructure.
The FHWA Advanced Transportation and Congestion Management Technologies Deployment grant was awarded to several applicants including The University of Alabama. We are using this grant for the initiative Advanced Connected Transportation Infrastructure & Operations Network (ACTION) project. Our collaborative effort will streamline traffic to improve mobility on the region's road network during normal operations and situations when roadway capacity or traffic demands adversely affect traffic operations.
Transportation Policy Research Center
The TPRC plays a central role in the Alabama Transportation Institute, helping to communicate and interpret research findings to the general public and policy-makers. It is part of the network of campus researchers and centers under the Alabama Transportation Institute.
CAPS Applied Digital Transportation
The Center for Advanced Public Safety and ATI have a long history of working on projects that advance and enhance public safety across the state. CAPS is a part of the College of Engineering at The University of Alabama working on digital transportation and public safety projects.
eCite & eCrash for Alabama
The Center for Advanced Public Safety has modernized many aspects of transportation technology for the state of Alabama and surrounding states. This includes the modernization of traffic citations and crash reporting to an all-digital format for reporting and transmission. These new applications have been adopted throughout Alabama.
These grants, also known as Better Utilizing Investments to Leverage Development grants, are awarded by the U.S. Department of Transportation each year as an investment in planning and capital investments in surface transportation infrastructure. ATI helped secure funding for projects in Decatur and Cullman, Alabama.
