Innovative Workforce Training
A simulation-based training and control system will be designed and validated to develop the next-generation transportation workforce. Video games will be developed to attract more students and the public to robotic inspection. A robotic simulator will be designed for professional training.
Together, a robotic simulator with training video games will be used to educate and train all Americans with job opportunities associated with information and automation technologies, including millennials and other underserved populations through minority serving partner institutions and two-year community colleges.
Seminars, workshops and training courses will be offered to promote the developed new technologies. Both hardware and software will be disseminated to end users in private and public sectors.
Students will be connected to potential transportation industry employers through external advisory committee and annual meetings.
