Labs and Research Center

Transportation Research Laboratory

Transportation Research Laboratory (TRL) is the university-supported research unit under the Ratchadapisek Research Fund, with annual endowment of 1 million baht. The mission focuses on advancing the excellence in transportation research and strengthening the multi-disciplinary academic activities in the field of transportation. The traffic laboratory possesses various equipment for traffic studies, both conventional and state-of-the-art instruments. Various traffic software packages are available on number of PCs, including simulation and traffic analysis programs. Transportation planning packages is used as a tool for study and research.
