Researchers at Central Queensland University are interested in talking to NatRoad Members who are using or managing in-vehicle fatigue detection technology.
The project is investigating barriers and enablers of effective fatigue detection technology use for organisations, as well as device usability and impacts on drivers.
Investigators are conducting one-on-one interviews over Zoom and offering a $50 voucher to participants to compensate them for their time. All information will be de-identified and remain confidential.
“We are interested in the experiences of individuals who have either driven using these technologies as part of their work, or who are involved in the management of, or decision-making around these technologies,” says researcher Dr Madeleine Spraker.
“This will include drivers, safety managers, supervisors, data-users, general managers, and executives. Data from drivers will be collected using one-to-one interviews.
“The data we collect will then be used to understand experiences of using and/or managing fatigue detection technology to develop a better understanding of perceptions of these technologies, and how implementation may be more effective in the future.
“This will hopefully lead to improved fatigue risk management in the transport industry.”
