HumanFIRST Operations Budget FY15 - FY18

The Roadway Safety Institute is a regional University Transportation Center (UTC) funded by the United States Department of Transportation (USDOT). The Institute plans and conducts activities that further the mission of the UTC program of the USDOT. That mission is to advance Roadway Safety and develop expertise in the many disciplines that make up transportation through education, research, and technology transfer activities at university-based centers of excellence. The Institute's activities are guided by its theme of enhancing the safety of road based transportation through a focus on human-centered technology. The HumanFIRST Laboratory (Human Factors Interdisciplinary Research in Simulation and Transportation), established in 2001, is the primary human factors research laboratory of the University of Minnesota's Roadway Safety Institute. The mission of the HumanFIRST Laboratory is to reduce the rate of injurious and fatal crashes by improving the understanding of driver behavior and by supporting the design and evaluation of usable intelligent transportation systems to improve traffic safety. The HumanFIRST Laboratory Operations Budget is provided by the Roadway Safety Institute and supports program related tasks that include operations management and staff coverage, facilities management and upgrading, strategic research planning and fund leveraging, research outreach and publications, and the conduct of internally funded projects that increase the breadth and quality of program research.
