Role Of Centres/Division & Units

MIROS is headed by a Director General and administratively organised into three Centres and a Division. The centres are the Road Engineering and Environment Research Centre, Road User Behavioural Change Research Centre, and the Vehicle Safety and Biomechanics Research Centre, while the division is the Management Services Division.

Director's General Office (DGO)

Units under the Director's General Office are:
  • Corporate and Knowledge Management Unit (CKM)
  • Research Management and Compliance Unit (RMC)
  • ASEAN NCAP Operational Unit

Road Safety Engineering and Environment Research Centre (REER)

The Road Safety Engineering & Environment Research Centre (REER) is organised into three (3) units:
  • Crash Data & Exposure Analysis Unit (CDE);
  • Highway and Traffic Engineering Unit (HTE); and
  • Intelligent Transport and System Development Unit (ITS).
Some of the major objectives of this Centre are to:
  • Provide for a continuously updated national accident and injury database;
  • Map accident data using geographical codes, Road User Movement (RUM) accident code and digital code;
  • Undertake diagnostic analysis on road accidents and assessment of safety interventions;
  • Undertake research on safer road designs and road environment;
  • Develop traffic models on traffic and transportation fa-cilities and;
  • Carry out survey on vehicle which operate annually to assess Vehicle Kilometer Travelled rate (VKT) and Passenger Kilometer Travelled (PKT).

Road User Behavioural Change Research Centre (RUBC)

  • Crash Safety Engineering Unit (CRASE); and
  • Crash Reconstruction Unit (CRU).
The major objectives of the Centre are to:
  • Carry out crashworthiness investigation in the mechanics of injury, biomechanics and human tolerance to crash, including reconstruction of injury-related crashes;
  • Undertake research on trauma care, post-injury treatment, emergency response and pre- and post-crash medical health;
  • Review policies and current approaches towards improving Standard Opera-ting Procedures, Code of Practice and Industrial Standards through technical reports and publications as well as recommendations;
