About Us

The mission of FMCSA's Research Division is to reduce the number and severity of commercial motor vehicle (CMV)-involved crashes and enhance the safety and efficiency of CMV operations by:

  • Conducting systematic studies directed toward fuller scientific discovery, knowledge, or understanding.
  • Adopting, testing, and deploying innovative driver, carrier, vehicle, and roadside best practices and technologies.

By expanding the knowledge and portfolio of deployable technologies and innovations, the Research Division will help FMCSA reduce crashes, injuries, and fatalities and will deliver a program that contributes to a safe and secure commercial transportation system.
