The QTA is pleased to offer an exciting opportunity for members to take part in a trial of in-vehicle driver monitoring technology. The technology being used will be Gen 2 Guardian Seeing Machine System.
The Motor Accident Insurance Commission (MAIC) has funded this QTA led project to ascertain the effectiveness of driver monitoring technology in reducing the incidence of driver distraction, inattention and fatigue episodes.
The opportunity exists for eligible road freight operators in Queensland who have a safety management system in place.
There are two strands to this project which runs for twelve months from October 2019:
STRAND ONE – fleets currently NOT using driver monitoring technology
-Person in business to lead and manage project communication
-Business owner/staff member participate in information sessions and attend bi-monthly project meetings (or phone hook-ups)
-Follow structured on-boarding process with staff
-Follow Griffith University's evaluation processes
-Time allocation for installation of system in trucks (2hrs/truck)
-Undertake assessment of current risk and consequence management framework
-Operations staff and drivers participation in short surveys and interviews during the course of the project
-Participation in the pilot by consenting to use anonymized data for evaluation purposes
What's included:-cost of hardware and up to $500 installation costs
-operators will retain the hardware after project completion
-any installation costs over $500
-Monthly subscription cost for three years
STRAND TWO – fleets currently using Guardian driver monitoring technology
-Participation by operations staff and drivers in short surveys and interviews during the course of the project.
-Be part of a pilot project that will form part of an evidence based report to help shape new laws and the benefits of using technology to improve safety outcomes.
