Heavy vehicle driver fatigue research project

Are you interested in supporting research to better understand and manage heavy vehicle driver fatigue?

The NTC is working with the Cooperative Research Centre for Alertness, Safety and Productivity (Alertness CRC) to evaluate the impacts of the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL) on driver fatigue. 

The study is taking place over 18 months, measuring driver drowsiness and sleeping patterns, both on the road during real-world work shifts and in laboratory settings. The research will use state-of-the-art alertness measurement technologies and a unique combination of research and industry based expertise that is made available through the Alertness CRC.

The study operates under the guidance of an ethics committee. All data collected from drivers and operators is strictly confidential and will only be reported in a de-identified and aggregated format.
