Toyota will work with researchers from five U.S. universities on nine new research initiatives to improve safety. Announced at the 2011 Toyota Safety Technology Seminar at the Toyota Technical Center (TTC) in Ann Arbor Sept. 13, initiatives range from automated crash notification to driver distraction and will be led by the automaker's Collaborative Safety Research Center (CSRC), which is part of the TTC. The CSRC will operate on an initial funding budget of $50 million over five years. Universities participating in the nine initiatives include Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Indiana University, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, and Wayne State University. Announcement of the initiatives brings their number to 13, including a previously announced one involving the University of Michigan.
