Project Description

The safety and well-being of heavy vehicle drivers is critical in supporting an efficient freight sector, which in turn sustains economic productivity. This CRC-P, led by Seeing Machines, is focused on the development of an integrated driver monitoring solution for vehicle drivers that will enable the freight industry to monitor and improve driver safety and wellbeing, in ways not currently possible, resulting in significant economic gains. National and international regulation of this technology will make Australian industry a leader in this global market.. The CRC-P includes Ron Finemore Transport, whose vehicles will be installed with a range of technologies, and MUARC whose driving simulator will be used as a test bed for the development of the futuristic technology. The end result will be a prototype system that integrates the performance and health of the driver with what is going on outside the vehicle on the roads. It is expected that considerable safety benefits will result, and the system can form the basis of futuristic autonomous vehicles.
