Trucker Survey Looks at Five Onboard Safety Systems

The American Transportation Research Institute said Thursday it is conducting a confidential survey of commercial truckers about five types of onboard safety systems (OSS): lane departure warning systems, collision warning systems with or without adaptive cruise control, stability control systems, and two next-generation integrated technologies -- integrated lane departure with collision warning and electronic stability control with wireless, real-time monitoring.

ATRI said the survey is part of its collaboration with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on the design of field tests for these systems. "The goal is to generate data and analyses allowing carriers to improve OSS investment decision-making," according to a news release posted by the American Trucking Associations. (ATRI is a not-for-profit research arm of ATA.)

"This latest initiative provides an important opportunity for trucking industry stakeholders and FMCSA to better understand the role of OSS in improving safety," according to the release. "The [survey] responses will be used to design a field test blueprint that will generate meaningful data, allowing industry stakeholders to better understand the impact of OSS on safety and operations." The survey is available at www.truckline.com/OSSUserSurvey.
