Loughborough University (Transport Safety Research Centre)
The objectives of the Transport Safety Research Centre are to reduce traffic casualties and mitigate the broader impact of transport on society by conducting world-leading basic and applied research.
Previously called the Vehicle Safety Research Centre it was renamed in 2010 to reflect the greater diversity of its research in the field of traffic safety and transport technologies.
The Transport Safety Research Centre is a multi-disciplinary team conducting research into all aspects of road and vehicle safety and road user behaviour. With a team of over 35 staff and post-graduate researchers the Centre bases its research on real-world accident studies, naturalistic studies of driver behaviour and statistical analysis of accident, health and mobility data.
We conduct research on behalf of Government and industry and our work impacts directly on the road and vehicle safety policies and the performance requirements of new vehicles. In 2007 The Centre was recognised by the award to the University of the Queens Anniversary Prize.
