  • Abstract:
    Research sponsored by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) in 2008 documented discrete

    safety technology investment differences that exist across motor carrier fleet sizes. In response, this research

    analyzed the use of onboard safety systems (OSSs) by small carriers (fewer than 50 power units), drivers/owneroperators,

    and the requisite OSS investment motivators and barriers. This research identified and measured OSS

    investment and deployment patterns within the trucking industry by mapping carrier-level OSS use with financial

    and operational differences by fleet size.

    The research findings provide guidance on the challenges and unique perspectives that various industry sectors

    have toward adopting OSS technologies. These technologies were limited to Stability Control Systems (SCSs), Lane

    Departure Warning Systems (LDWSs), and Collision Warning Systems (CWSs). This information can provide

    industry stakeholders and Government representatives with investment thresholds and requirements, potential

    adoption strategies, and public-private collaboration opportunities.
