Let's Get Connected LLL at Virginia Tech June 18 2020 - Flipbook - Page 13
Since 1988, the Virginia Tech Transportation
Institute (VTTI) has been on the cutting edge of
VTTI is developing, testing, and deploying nextgeneration vehicles and technologies to make
driving safer and, ultimately, to prevent all
traffic-related deaths on our nation’s highways.
By integrating vehicular systems, data sciences,
and human factors research, VTTI is working with
virtually every leading firm in the transportation
industry to aid in the development and assessment
of tomorrow’s vehicles and technologies.
The best innovations occur when talented people from disparate fields are
connected and their skills and views are focused on difficult problems that
matter. At Virginia Tech, we assemble around big ideas and broad themes and,
in so doing, encourage creativity, risk taking, and collaboration.
We explore the human implications of next-gen
technology. Through a human-centered approach,
we not only develop next-generation solutions,
but we explore the implications of technologies in
the digital age. We create platforms for advancing
participation in the workforce, expanding inclusion
and diversity, and aiding equity and prosperity. Our
growing footprint across the commonwealth creates
opportunities along the urban-rural continuum.
We seek to include diverse perspectives.
With our expanded Office for Inclusion and
Diversity, we are bringing a host of new programs
and engagement platforms to the university,
including the College Access Collaborative, which
is working to expand access to Virginia Tech for
students in communities with low high-school and
post-secondary education rates.
