Introduction

People who make safe and pleasant roads Highway and Transportation Research Institute

Highway and Transportation Research Institute conducts R&D on policies and substitute technologies that include technical criteria and instructions necessary for safe, efficient and economical roads. It conducts a variety of research activities related to: materials and methods for road pavement, maintenance technologies, technologies to install and maintain road safety subsidiary facilities and road safety improvement systems, and enhanced road/transportation services. It is currently working on the development of next-generation smart road technology that utilizes the communication between transportation information/traffic/navigation services and private vehicles. New vehicle driving systems will integrate innovative IT technology with current road network infrastructure. Highway and Transportation Research Institute is committed to securing safe and efficient road transportation as well as the research and development necessary to create intelligent, informative, and high value roads.
