The Roadway Safety Institute’s seminar series kicks off this week! Join us for the first seminar on January 18 to hear how University of Minnesota researchers have designed in-vehicle systems for high-risk drivers.
The series, held on Thursdays from 2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Central, features leading roadway safety researchers in a wide range of disciplines. Seminars are free and open to anyone interested in learning more about transportation safety research. Undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and practitioners are encouraged to attend.
Join us in person in Room 102 of the Mechanical Engineering Building on the east bank campus of the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. If you can’t attend, you can watch each seminar live online—or later at your convenience.
Hope to see you there!
