Transportation seminar: "NHTSA’s Behavioral Safety Research Efforts" March 29

We invite you to join us for a transportation seminar, “A new approach to driverless mobility,” from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, March 29, 2024.

The seminar will be in person at SEB 1240. We also offer an option for individuals to participate online. The speaker is Nanda Srinivasan, associate administrator for research, NHTSA / US DOT. He earned his master’s degree in civil engineering from UNLV.

This talk will cover NHTSA’s mission, authorities with respect to vehicle and behavioral safety and provide a deep dive of NHTSA’s behavioral safety activities in the context of the National Roadway Safety Strategy and Safe System Approach. These include NHTSA’s research and program development efforts geared towards safety of all road users, occupant protection, impaired driving, traffic enforcement, and emergency medical services. The speaker will also cover the role of research and data in informing program development and subsequently in NHTSA’s grant programs, and address recent products of research.  Finally, the speaker will describe current opportunities at NHTSA and in the behavioral safety field in general.

RSVP by 10 a.m. on March 28, 2024 (for lunch arrangements if attending in person).
