CrashLab is a technological innovation of the IRTE in-house research wing. CrashLab is equipped with the latest tools and gadgets for collecting evidences and measurements from the accident scene.
IRTE took the initiative to set up the Mobile Accident Investigation & Road Safety Reconnaissance Laboratory, with a vision to revolutionize scientific collision investigation in the country and to support the police and other investigating authorities in determining factual causes and consequences of such collisions.
" On completion of 25 years of exceptional dedication and perseverance
in nurturing a truly world class facility to guide the destiny of road safety in
India, I compliment Dr Rohit Baluja and the entire Team of IRTE. As the
Provost Marshal of the Indian Army, I immensely benefitted from their advice
and support on matters of road safety, investigations, driver training and traffic
management. Structured advice on specific needs, qualitatively enhanced
safety and control measures within the Army. I found the entire IRTE Team
most value based, passionate, innovative and progressive in their working
ethos. My best wishes for their continued growth and service to the Nation.

" At 25 years of age, the Institute has reached an important milestone. Organizations, like people, grow into maturity and I think the IRTE has come through its formative stages and is now into a period of prime productivity and growth. I am pleased to be engaged with the Institute over the past several years and to play a small part in this growth, to see its horizons expand to include a new national alcohol laboratory, to attend the inauguration of the Road Safety Hall of Nations, to see it host regular international conferences on important safety topics, and to be present when the Institute earned the title of Center of Excellence for Road Safety in South East Asia. All this from a young organization with a long and prosperous life ahead. "
