Penn, Carnegie Mellon Receive Grant for Transportation Research

The University of Pennsylvania and Carnegie Mellon University have received a $5.65 million U.S. Department of Transportation grant for a joint research center to conduct transportation technology research and development.
The two-year grant will allow the Penn CMU partnership, Technologies for Safe and Efficient Transportation, or T-SET, to continue to develop and implement new technologies.
“It’s great to be recognized as a national DOT transportation center, said Dan Lee, co-director of T-SET and professor of electrical and systems engineering in Penn’s School of Engineering and Applied Science. “Our faculty and students are excited to be working on research related to improving the safety and efficiency of our transportation systems.”
