Driver monitoring technology

There are numerous devices and systems available and in development for monitoring driver behaviour in the vehicle. Use this page to access research on developments of this type of technology, and their efficacy.

Validating the efficacy of GPS tracking vehicle movement for driving behaviour assessment
Curtin University, Australia, 07/06/16

Vehicle movement tracking by different GPS receivers and positioning techniques should been fully explored and documented before being put into practice.

Mobile apps are an important part of fleet management, particularly for booking services and viewing company policies

Study on the benefits resulting from the installation of Event Data Recorders
Transport Research Laboratory, 01/12/14

Most new cars have the sensors necessary for Electronic Data Recorders to be installed, so for minimal cost crash data could be used to improve road safety.

Study of the Impact of a Telematics System on Safe and Fuel-efficient Driving in Trucks
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, 30/06/14

A study of telematics in US truck fleets found telematics reduced speeding by up to 42%, and improved fuel economy by up to 9%.

Video monitors in trucks, buses could save lives
Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, 08/05/14

Installing safety monitoring cameras in large trucks and buses could cut at-fault fatal crashes by 20% and save 800 lives each year in the US.

Safety in occupational driving: development of a driver behaviour scale for the workplace
Queensland University of Technology, 15/12/10

A scale to measure the safety of occupational driver behaviour has been developed by Queensland University of Technology.

Predicting effects of monotony on driver’s vigilance
Queensland University of Technology, 08/10/10

Mathematical modelling could lead to an in-vehicle device predicting driver lapses of vigilance on monotonous roads.

How can in-vehicle safety equipment improve road safety at work?
European Transport Safety Council, 09/10/09

In-vehicle technologies such as alcolocks, Electronic Stability Control and fatigue detectors make a contribution to at-work road safety but their efficiency is dependent on employee training.

Mitigating driver distraction with retrospective and concurrent feedback
University of Iowa, 02/10/07

Combined feedback (real time as well as post-drive) holds the most promise for mitigating the effects of distraction from in-vehicle information systems and helping the driver to learn safe driving.
