The Research in Progress (RiP) database contains records of current or recently completed transportation research projects. Each month about 100 new RiP projects are added to the database and another 150 RiP records are updated. Most of the RiP records are projects funded by federal and state Departments of Transportation. University transportation research is also included. In 1998, the Transportation Association of Canada began supplying records from its Canadian Surface Transportation Research Database for RiP.
The RiP database is an excellent resource for emerging technologies.
