Data enables us all to make better decisions. The transportation field is no different. UMTRI research through the ages has societal benefits because it used experimental and historical data to yield sound and reliable results. As we have progressed technologically, especially in the area of intelligent transportation systems, the volume of data has blossomed at an extraordinary rate. Big data exceeds the processing capability of conventional database systems. In order to gain value from these volumnous archives, we have to find an alternative way to process these data. Our cost-effectiveness approach to master these massive volumes of data support UMTRI's mission to advance safe and sustainable transportation for all.
