The National Transport Commission Australia is working with the Cooperative Research Centre for Alertness, Safety and Productivity (Alertness CRC) to evaluate the impacts of the Heavy Vehicle National Law on driver fatigue.

Taking place over 18 months, the study will measure driver drowsiness and sleeping patterns, both on the road during real-world work shifts and in laboratory settings. The research will use alertness measurement technologies and a combination of research and industry-based expertise that is made available through the Alertness CRC.

To take part, drivers must:

  • Undertake local or long-distance driving (minimum 30 hours per week)
  • Operate a heavy vehicle in any industry sector, including livestock and dairy
