Korea Transport Institute,
In a renewed effort to work together on future projects, a delegation of researchers from the Korea Transport Institute (KOTI) visited the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI) in October. The visit followed presentations by TTI researchers at KOTI this summer.
“While vacationing in my home country of South Korea, I visited KOTI and made a presentation about some of the work we were doing here at TTI,” Associate Transportation Researcher Myunghoon Ko explains. “Since then, at KOTI’s request, TTI Research Engineer Ginger Goodin traveled to KOTI and presented a report about the future of transportation.”
KOTI and TTI signed a memorandum of understanding in 2007, but until now, little has been accomplished in developing a working relationship. Representatives from both agencies have now agreed to collaborate on a pedestrian safety project. It is expected that TTI and KOTI will share and discuss interim findings of the project in a meeting at the Transportation Research Board annual meeting in Washington, D.C., in January of 2017.
As part of the delegation’s visit to TTI, KOTI Researcher Youngho Kim detailed his efforts to improve the realism of driving simulators so they can be used for driver training.
