Dr. David Hurwitz's research program is invested in the advancement of knowledge in the areas of traffic control, user behavior, driving simulation, transportation safety, and engineering education. In particular, Dr. Hurwitz is interested in the consideration of user behavior in the design, evaluation, and innovation of surface transportation systems. Additionally, his program contributes to advancing the state of the practice in transportation engineering education through the development of research based curricula and assessment tools. The research program leverages the OSU driving simulator laboratory and a significant array of traffic data collection tools to provide a more detailed understanding of how and why transportation systems perform the way they do. Ultimately, the team uses this knowledge and technology to improve the performance of transportation infrastructure.
