TranLIVE (Transportation for Livability by Integrating Vehicles and the Environment) is a university research collaboration focused on developing technologies to reduce the environmental impact of the transportation system.

Our mission is to help the United States achieve the goals of a cleaner environment and greater energy independence through

  1. eco-traffic signal system technologies,
  2. eco-routing tools, and
  3. alternative fuels and vehicles.

Our mission is accomplished through our work on four goals:

Goal 1: Integrate real-time data systems and advanced transportation applications to better manage congestion while minimizing environmental impacts.

Goal 2: Develop modeling, simulation, and visualization tools that assess energy, environmental, and emission impacts of transportation systems to support transportation decision making at the local, regional, and national levels.

Goal 3: Increase the number of students in our research and education programs and use advanced curriculum design to enhance the transportation workforce.

Goal 4: Transfer the results of our research program to practicing professionals in forms that are usable to them to improve the quality and performance of our workforce.
