The NHVR is undertaking a trial of fatigue safety related technologies to gain a greater understanding of how they work and are used. The trial is being conducted in five phases between January 2019 and June 2020. This is one of the actions the NHVR agreed to undertake in response to the Fatigue Safety Forum in October 2018.

The purpose of the trial is to determine how best to encourage industry uptake of technology that monitors drivers and detects fatigue and/or distraction.
The NHVR will lead the trial but will engage an independent, external consultant to assist with certain aspects of its delivery. We will also engage regularly with industry and government stakeholders through established forums and meetings.
Any invitations to participate in the trial will be made through our industry newsletter On the Road.
