Ms. Xiaofei Sun, a graduate student from Beijing Jiaotong University in China, is visiting TSU College of Science, Engineering and Technology conducting a research project titled “Environmental Impacts of Using Different Advanced Traffic Signal Status Warning Systems” under the supervision of Dr. Yi Qi. The goal of the research is to evaluate the environmental effectiveness of different driver warning systems through driving simulator test. The DriveSafety DS-600c simulator in the driving simulator lab in the College of Science, Engineering and Technology was used for this research. Ms. Sun has a great experience of working with TSU students and faculty, and their collaboration has led to a research paper submitted to this years’ Transportation Board Annual Meeting at Washington DC. It is a very productive experience and more international collaborations are expected in the future.
