Transport Telematics Centre (TTC) conducts scientific-research, promotional and expert work in the field of:

  • development of systems autonomizing driving in road transport,
  • driver's testing using driving simulators and eye tracking devices,
  • development of methods for monitoring the condition and behaviour of drivers,
  • assessing the behaviour of road users,
  • development of research and training driving simulators,
  • evaluation and validation of human-machine interfaces (HMI),
  • modern telecommunications, IT and electronic technologies used in road transport systems (Intelligent Transport Systems),
  • standardization and normalization in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems,
  • expert assessment of Intelligent Transport Systems and their components,
  • ICT systems for the needs of electric vehicles (e.g. pseudo-intelligent energy management), modern transport infrastructure, vehicle-vehicle and vehicle-infrastructure data transmission systems,
  • experimental road marking,
  • methodology of psychological testing of drivers, test standards and rules of judicature,
  • preparation of methodological materials which form the basis for transport psychologists training,
  • creating educational and re-educational programs for drivers and candidates for drivers as well as candidates for instructors and examiners.

In addition, the activities of the centre concern:

  • organization of seminars, trainings and scientific conferences,
  • co-organization of post-graduate studies for transport psychologists and diagnosticians,
  • active participation in the initiatives for education and changing dangerous attitudes of drivers and other road users - participation in social campaigns,
  • conducting psychological tests of drivers and candidates for drivers,
  • assistance to road accidents victims (participants, perpetrators, families of the victims),
  • substantive assistance to the existing and newly emerging psychological driver testing laboratories.

The above thematic scope of the Centre’s operation is carried out by three laboratories:

  1. Laboratory of autonomous vehicles:
  • studies of autonomous systems for road transport,
  • analyses for the needs of the implementation of autonomous driving systems in Poland,
  • cooperation with the manufacturers of system and component used for transport autonomizing,
  • analyses of technology development and trends related to intelligent mobility,
  • promotional activities for increasing awareness, social acceptance and safe implementation of autonomy systems for road transport,
  • tests of the road infrastructure in connection with the implementation of autonomous vehicles.
  1. Laboratory of Intelligent Transport Systems:
  • examination of Intelligent Transport Systems elements,
  • analyses of ITS impact on safety and efficiency of transport operation,
  • opinions and expertises in the field of Intelligent Transport Systems,
  • use of elements of Intelligent Transport Systems for the implementation of the smart cities concept (Smart City),
  • analyses in the field of modern transport infrastructure,
  • maintaining infrastructure and databases for the needs of the Road Carriers Certification process,
  • popularization of knowledge in the field of transport activities with particular emphasis on the organization and operation of a road transport company.
  1. Transport psychology and driving simulators laboratory:
  • research in the field of transport psychology,
  • organizing training and social campaigns in the field of transport psychology,
  • preparation of analyzes, opinions and expertises in the field of transport psychology,
  • development of information technology (VR, AR, simulations) used in testing and training of drivers,
  • studies on the behaviour of drivers in simulation conditions,
  • testing of vehicle equipment, including man-machine interfaces, using high-end driving simulators.
