Crash Safety Research Center (CSRC), LLC is known for its scientific research related to driver, rider and pedestrian response (human response to traffic). We have conducted research in our laboratory, in the field, on a driving simulator and in the form of case study research in an effort to learn more about how drivers’ responses change in various circumstances. When asked to perform a case study, after a thorough analysis of a driver’s response, we compare the performance of the driver to the manner in which others have performed when faced with a similar situation. The case study is then used to further our research efforts in order to better understand the factors that change drivers’ responses. Armed with hundreds of research studies, and our own research, CSRC, LLC also provides education in crash cause analysis and human factors in traffic crashes.
