Incorporating Large Language Models (LLMs) into Transportation Safety Analytics and Equity

This project focuses on enhancing transportation safety and equity through Large Language Models (LLMs). It aims to improve crash data analysis, highlighting disparities in traffic safety, especially for vulnerable road users and underserved communities. Utilizing the Connecticut Crash Data Repository, the project will develop an LLM algorithm to automatically analyze crash patterns and generate visual reports. This innovative approach is designed to identify and address inequities in transportation safety, aligning with the new Bipartisan Infrastructure Law's requirements. The interdisciplinary team brings together expertise in machine learning and transportation safety, ensuring a comprehensive approach to tackling these challenges. The project's outcomes are expected to influence policy and planning decisions, leading to safer and more equitable transportation systems.
