Technology presents great opportunities to improve safety, compliance and efficiency across Australia's transport networks

Technology

The NTC works to ensure we get the best productivity and safety outcomes from rapidly evolving technology.

Technology's evolving nature means there is always going to be more work for the NTC to do as new applications are developed and implemented in Australia's transport networks.

For example, we developed a framework to support the use of in-vehicle telematics, such as electronic work diaries, speed and mass monitoring devices, and information collected from these systems, to achieve better safety and productivity outcomes.

As well as monitoring fatigue compliance, in-vehicle telematics devices can also be used to monitor speed and even vehicle maintenance such as tyre or engine condition to help industry manage and maintain their fleets more efficiently.
