ATRI outlines research priorities for 2021
The American Transportation Research Institute will focus its research this year on under-21 truck drivers, electric trucks, marijuana decriminalization, driver-facing cameras and zero-emission trucks. The ATRI Board of Directors approved the list of research topics at a recent meeting.

ATRI’s Research Advisory Committee selected research topics that examine workforce, infrastructure, legal and operational issues, which align with multiple top concerns identified in ATRI’s annual Top Industry Issues survey. Additionally, given the heightened attention on electric vehicles, two of the top priority studies will examine specific trucking impacts arising from increased deployment of electric trucks.
