SUTD-LTA Transport Research Centre


SUTD and the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore signed an MOU in November 2017 to establish the SUTD-LTA Transport Research Centre (TRC) in SUTD to address current and future challenges in the transport sector.

The research centre leverages SUTD’s expertise to focus on issues pertinent to Singapore, such as ageing population, land scarcity and rising travel demand for public transport. Both parties collaborate in joint research and development as well as capability building and training activities and projects for the benefit of future land transport in Singapore.

Areas of Focus

The collaborative research scope of the SUTD-LTA TRC will be broadly focused on Data Analytics, User-Centric Design, Cybersecurity, Behavioural Studies, and Robotics & Automation.
